his ski racing career concluded, Andy Mill found another passion
- tarpon fishing. A lifelong fisherman, he brought a similar level
of dedication and perfection to fishing. Although he admittedly
struggled for quite a few years, he eventually mastered the art
of tarpon fishing and went on to become only the second angler
to win 5 Gold Cup Tarpon tournaments and be a triple crown winner
in tarpon fishing (Gold Cup, Hawley, and Golden Fly). Mill has
also hosted an outdoor show on OLN as well as fished for a number
of fish including marlin, sailfish, bonefish, and permit, among

grew up in Sunnyvale, California where Baseball, Surfing, and
Fly Fishing didn't help my grades. Then, came some College Summers
working on a Cattle Ranch in British Columbia that was surrounded
by some really good Kamloops Trout Lakes. That's when I knew that
as soon as I graduated that I would be leaving Urban Life forever
and I did. A decade of impersonating a Fishing Guide followed
in places like Fall River in Northern California, Alaska, the
Deschutes River in Oregon, British Columbia for both Skeena Steelhead
and Cutthroat Trout in the Rockies, along with 4 summers based
out of West Yellowstone.
In 1983, I immigrated to Canada and started to split my year between
B.C. and New Zealand and lots of rivers and streams in between.
I also started producing my Fly
Fishing Dreams Calendar that I sell all over the world and
it's also carried again this year in the I.F.F.F.
If you come to my show, you'll see my very favourite waters from
around the world and my annual route; the English Chalkstreams,
Montana, Idaho, the Trout and Steelhead Seasons of B.C., and all
over New Zealand, both Islands, top to bottom. My show is about
the people, places, patterns and passion of our sport and my love
for photography and travel. I'm not a Guide or Lodge Owner but
I like helping people and loading my calendars every year with
as much good info as I can.

am the 8th generation and direct descendant of Abraham & Appolonia
Baum, the original Baum family that immigrated to the Outer Banks
of North Carolina from present day Germany in the late 1600's…from
the Civil War through today many are Captains, ship builders and
old school lifelong commercial fisherman. During the summer of
my 10th year we moved to Alaska. This is where and where I became
involved with flyfishing at 12 years old. I moved back to Cape
Hatterras in the early 80's and became an electrician while renewing
my saltwater fishing. I would surf fish, pier fish and even wade
the Pamlico Sound until the early 90's. This is when I moved back
to Alaska. This is also when I devoted myself solely to
I started coming to Miami in 2003 and began the groundwork to
learn a completely new eco-system and start from scratch on everything.
I have systematically figured out the secrets to unlocking the
potential in the waters right here in Miami just minutes from
the urban skyline. I have spent over 10yrs on the water here now
and in the same exact area and know it completely. I have developed
my own custom flies that cover all species with unparalleled success.
