Anglers Inn University

Owner Billy Chapman brings Anglers Inn University to Florida. Led by industry veteran George Large along with the Anglers Inn University team, we will share our in-depth fishing knowledge from beginner to expert, flyfisher to kayaker, and saltwater enthusiast, teaching with an emphasis on fun, fishing ethics and respect for our environment.

Located along the beautiful Kings Bay at Pete’s Pier, 1 SW 1st Place, Crystal River, FL, this destination boasts some of the best fishing in Florida, maybe the world, for the most exciting species Inshore: Tarpon, Snook, Redfish or Offshore: Grouper, Dorado, Kings. Not to mention the terrific Bass fishery surrounding the area.

Let us teach your significant other how to fish, and enjoy your time on the water together. When they are done with our class, they will be self-sufficient and may even out fish you!

Grandparents, spend quality time with your grandchildren fishing, and not untangling lines or getting hooks out of hats. We are the team that can do that and make your time on the water a memorable one for all of you.
