Captain Neill Holland is a St. Petersburg, Florida, native son and owner/operator of GoFishTampaBay.com. Neill specializes in flats and nearshore fishing, and he's as comfortable with novice anglers, families, and kids; as he is with die-hard anglers at the top of their game. He graduated from Columbia University and has fished around the world, from the reefs of East Timor (near Indonesia), to the Egyptian Nile, to the Sri Lankan coast and Belizean out islands. But for Capt. Neill, there is no place like home, and he treasures the opportunity to host visiting anglers and sun-seekers in his homewaters of Tampa Bay. Captain Neill's biggest tarpon on flyrod was 165 pounds and was caught sight-fishing less than 10 minutes from his marina. His fiancée, Danielle, operates the family restaurant and vacation rental, and together they have a bald dog - a Hairless American Terrier - named Bob.
