Guest Profile

Sam Sirgo is a petroleum engineer from Texas. When he is not dealing with black gold, he is chasing red gold – redfish, that is. Not to mention all the freshwater fish Texas has to offer. Sam also loves to travel with his trusty fly rod and try new places to fish. He has been to spots all over South America and the Caribbean, including Costa Rica, Belize, and the Cayman Islands, to name a few. But the epic story he shares in this episode comes a little closer to home. Sam made the drive to New Orleans looking for that red gold. After after some early struggles, he served up the perfect cast on a bull redfish’s dinner plate. Time for some bull red fly fishing action.

Fishing experience

Sam grew up in West Texas fishing occasionally. When in college at Texas Tech, he took to fly fishing as an outlet. A trip to Grand Cayman and a bonefish sealed that deal for good. Now Sam travels frequently to new places to explore, catch new fish, and continue to improve his skills. Sam also builds his own rods and ties his own flies (and a TON of them). Of course, being close to the Texas coast and Lousiana, it’s not surprise he loves to catch redfish. In this episode, we talk about bull red fly fishing.
