RE:Wading in or near Key West?
I'll look up Jeffery Cardenas in the Key West Flyshop. I haven't talked to him in a long time. He is THE flyshop in Key West. If you look him up, tell him I sent you. (I was a contributing editor for VFS at the time).
There's also a gentleman who drops by the fly shop quite a bit. He is close to the guys at WorldWide Anglers in Islamorada. I'll try him too.
