Steven Soule

The "Shallowist" Captain Steve Soule, is a professional fishing guide and seasoned tournament angler who fishes the Galveston and Matagorda Bay complexes of the Upper Texas Coast. Steve specializes in fly-fishing and light-tackle fishing with artificial lures, targeting trophy trout, redfish, and flounder. As a fly-casting instructor, Steve teaches casting from basic through expert in the Houston area. Steve regularly gives casting and fishing clinics and conducts seminars at local clubs and retailers in addition to national events. Captain Steve was one of the founding partners of the coastal fly-fishing school in Houston. As a young man, Steve cut his saltwater "teeth" fishing the flats of Flamingo, in Florida Bay, for shallow roaming redfish. By age eight, he was successfully sight casting with artificial lures. As his interest grew, he picked up fly-casting from his uncle, Captain Skip Soule, who is a long-time fly-fisher and guide in the Florida Keys. It wasn't long before Steve was catching Tarpon, Snook, Bonefish, and other species on fly and developing serious interests in the art of fly-casting and fly-tying. This led Steve to the development of numerous fly patterns that have been featured in print and pioneering new techniques for saltwater angling.
