Naples Fly Fishing the 10,000 Islands
  Here in the Everglades, we live in one of the most unique places on earth.  This is a diverse and fragile ecosystem; all species are connected, from the River of Grass all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. We are proud to support global conservation efforts as members  of  One Percent for the Planet and support under-funded conservation efforts around the planet as well as here in in our own back yard.

We are located south of Naples, Florida at Port of the Islands and fly fish Naples, Marco Island, Everglades National Park and throughout the 10,000 Islands. We will work hard to provide you with the best fly fishing southwest Florida has to offer. 

Fly fishing is our passion and that is all we do.  Our fishing is some of the most diverse in the world offering anglers one of the most challenging fly fishing destinations anywhere.  We promote catch and release fishing for our game fish and know that these fish are far too important of a resource to be caught only once.  These are tough fish, often selective and spooky - pack your best cast along with your sunblock and come fish with us.    

We hope you enjoy the information we share with you about our fishing and be sure to check our Catalog of what we think are some of the finest fly fishing products anywhere.  Sign up for our newsletter and fly fishing report on the link below.

We look forward to hearing from you,

Fishing Report - August 10, 2011

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 08/12/11

   Our summer weather pattern continues with tropical days, afternoon rains and beautiful evenings here in the Everglades. Fishing has been good both early and later in the day with some nice redfish and tarpon around.

   We have been fishing mostly top water patterns the last few weeks, not so much because they are more effective than our baitfish imitations, because they are so much fun to fish. There is nothing like a snook hitting a top water fly like a Tsunami or Jail Bird when skittered across a creek mouth. We are finding more snook than we did last year at this time and see signs of this fishery recovering.

   Evening fishing has been good; especially those days that we get a good afternoon rain to cool the water down a bit. The days are already getting shorter and fall is not that far away.

 When we haven't been fishing we have been doing some boat maintenance, tying some flies and getting ready for an upcoming fishing show.

We will keep you posted,

Capt Bill
