Capt Tris grew up in Vero Beach with a surfboard in one hand and a fishing rod in the other. His parents were both avid anglers who traveled to the Florida Keys & the Bahamas for bonefish and Cape Breton for wild Atlantic Salmon. They had a true appreciation for the art & finesse of fly fishing.
The rest of the story involves an incredibly interesting life on the high seas, first as a swordfish & tilefish long liner and then as a charter boat owner and captain. The latter has lent itself to his gregarious nature and a succession of interesting and happy charter customers who have “fished the mango” over the last 20 years. There is a generous amount of repeat business and Tris always looks forward to the familiar faces of those fishermen and friends who come back for more angling adventure on the Mango.
