About Captain Bob

Captain Bob: Expert Fisherman and Guide at Your Service


Passion for Fishing

Captain Bob Beighley has been fishing his whole life and is a very well-rounded fisherman. His father was an avid fly fisherman who showed him the ropes at a very young age. Bob started fishing for rockfish on the Chesapeake Bay, and then moved to Ocean City, MD where he became a successful offshore mate. There, he earned his master captain’s license, fishing primarily for marlin, tuna, and shark.

Discovering the Florida Flats

While working in the Florida Keys on an offshore fishing boat, he discovered flats fishing
and knew this was right up his alley. Bob then bought a house on Cudjoe Key where
he immediately started doing his homework, learning the flats and tides of the surrounding
keys. After years of study, he decided the time was right and started up
Double Haul Charters.

Guiding Fly Fishers

Today, Captain Bob is now a full-time guide and will lead you on your search for bonefish, tarpon, permit, barracuda, shark, and anything else you may encounter. He will also make you feel as comfortable as if you were fishing with an old fishin’ buddy.

Bob is very patient with children and novice anglers as well as the experienced old pro and will fine-tune your fishing skills regardless if you choose fly or spinning tackle. If your fly-casting is rusty or if you are new to fly fishing, Bob will gladly share his knowledge with you for as long as it takes.
