PAT FORD (the one on the left) was born and raised in northern New Jersey, fishing in most every body of water that was available to him. He entered the University of Notre Dame in 1961 where as a communications arts major, he added sports photography to his passions. After graduating in 1965, he entered Columbia Law School in New York City. After being admitted to the New York Bar in 1968, he joined the Navy JAG Corps and was stationed in Pensacola where he began writing for Salt Water Sportsman magazine and several others. When he was transfered from Pensacola to Key West, it became very clear that he was going to spend the rest of his life in Florida. After discharge from the Navy in December, 1972 he moved to Miami and began his law practice, specializing in civil litigation. He has been Board Certified in Civil Trial Law since 1983. For over 35 years now, Pat has continued to fish, take photos and write about his experiences on the water. He has traveled extensively and has held over a dozen IGFA Fly Rod World Records ranging fron a 196lb tiger shark caught in Florida Bay to a 14.5 lb tigerfish caught in Zambia, Africa. His first book on his fishing travels was published by STACKPOLE BOOKS in summer 2006. It's title is " The Best Fly Fishing Trips Money Can Buy" and is designed to help anglers duplicate the best fishing vacations that he has experienced. He is currently working on 'A PASSION FOR TARPON' with Andy Mill and Tom Pero and has provided the photos for Skip Clement's upcoming book 'EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK'. He is also working on Volume ii of 'Best Trips'.   All photographs displayed in this website are copyrighted to Pat Ford and may not be reproduced without his written consent....remember, he's a lawyer.
