Captain Rob Fordyce has been a professional guide, TV host and athlete, for the last 30 years. He currently hosts and co-produces “The SeaHunter”, the premiere saltwater fishing show, on the Outdoor Channel and World Fishing Network.
Rob has devoted himself to the outdoors. Not as others before him, whose alternate path was more avocation than vocation. Rob went about making it his career.
While still in high school, he won the MET (Miami Metropolitan Fishing Tournament) Master Angler award and was the youngest person in history to ever do so. He guides an average of 300 days per year in a normal season. Widely regarded as one of the best fly tarpon guides in the Florida Keys, Rob has won or placed among the top three finishers in more than 100 tournaments including, the prestigious Gold Cup Tarpon Tournament, Outback Golden Fly, Don Hawley Invitational Tarpon Release Tournament. He is the only guide to have won all four major Fly Tarpon Tournaments in their 50 year history.
Rob keeps his body in peak condition and is constantly studying his quarry, analyzing fishing conditions, and assessing tackle and tactics to achieve the best results. Rob's results and longevity are a testament to his physical and mental determination.
When we met Rob he was a devotee of another luxury watch brand; the largest and most recognized brand in the world (and we don't mean the Apple Watch). As a watch enthusiast, he was intrigued by what we are doing at SEAHOLM and approached us to put our watch to the test. Now he only wears his SEAHOLM Offshore.
