Chico Fernandez was born in Cuba and moved to South Florida at a young age. With him he brought his love for fishing and began Fly fishing in Miami after meeting Flip Pallot. Chico began his career as an Accountant and Budget Director for Burger King but after a short time he left the corporate world to become involved in the outdoors and fishing fields. This included writing, teaching and consulting on all things saltwater Fly fishing. He has broken and held several world records including the largest Redfish taken with a Fly rod and the first angler to land a White Marlin on Fly. Chico is a steward of conservation and is a strong supporter of the CCA and the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust. He currently lives in Miami, FL and spends his time teaching others the joys of saltwater Fly fishing.
