Capt Chris Phillips passed away last night after a long battle with cancer. Please say a small prayer for him.


Capt. Chris was known for his excellent ability to wadefish and pole for redfish with his fly rod.

When i worked at FTU, he taught me everything i needed to know about fly fishing. Even free casting lessons in the parking lot. :smile:

He will be missed by many. Im sure hes poling a flat stalking redfish right about now..

He sold me my first fly rod setup while patiently answering all my rookie questions. Even gave me a few flies and a rod tube. Sure wish I had taken the opporunity to go fishing with him.

Going to miss you Chris.

As a 15-16 year old kid I used to watch him pole the shouth shoreline out of Pirates Cove Marina as I was popping corks with live shrimp. Me may of single handling got me into fly fishing exlusively.

Say hi to my Dad and take him fishing please. God bless his family.
