Fly fishing in the Mangroves
Chasing fish with a fly rod is the ultimate shallow water experience. We spend our days targeting snook, redfish and tarpon in the shallow bays and coves of the 10,000 Islands and Everglades National Park This type of fishing is the equivalent of hunting because often we search for our target before casting.

Poling into the skinny water, we will look for the subtle signs of fish. Casts need to be quick and accurate. Once the fly has landed a short, quick strip will usually elicit a reaction strike. The most critical part of process comes next with the hook set. To catch snook, redfish and tarpon on fly a solid strip set must be used. Lifting the rod tip will not drive the hook home and the fish won’t stay on the line.

Tarpon fly fishing is a sight fishing activity. As the waters warm, tarpon move into shallow bays to rest and actually are found often lying motionless. They appear to be sleeping or resting and are prime targets once located. A well placed fly stripped across their face normally results in a electrifying hook up.
What will we be fishing for?
Sport fishing is year-round in Southwest Florida. Snook, redfish and tarpon abound in the warmer months and can be caught in the winter if the weather is mild. Cooler temperatures bring in sea trout, pompano, sheepshead, and black drum. Jack crevalle, ladyfish, snapper and more fill in the rest of the day with tight lines and bent rods. The weather and the tides play a major factor in what is biting. These mangrove estuaries offer tremendous diversity at all times throughout the year. You just never know what the next cast might bring.
Our departure sites include Goodland, Marco Island, Naples, Everglades City and Chokoloskee. We also run charters from Estero Bay and Pine Island which are about 30 minutes north of Naples.
