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 NaplesMarco IslandEverglades 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 flies. 

We look forward to hearing from you,

Fishing Report - August 27, 2011

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 08/27/11

  All eyes are on Hurricane Irene as it moves up the east coast of our country. We felt minimal effects here in the 10,000 Islands with just a couple of Irene's outer bands reaching us. The winds did stir up the water pretty thoroughly making for some difficult sight fishing conditions over the last few days. We feel lucky and hope our friends in the Bahamas came through it safely, and hope for the best for everyone in the Northeast.

   I fished with noted outdoor writers, Jimmy Jacobs and Polly Dean of Atlanta yesterday. They were here attending the Florida Outdoor Writers Convention held in Naples this week.  Given the weather forecast this week we were surprised we were able to fish at all. It was a short day but we did manage to find some tarpon to play with most of the morning before a big squall came in along with the top of the tide, pretty well shutting it down for the day.

   The Florida FFF Expo is scheduled for October 21 & 22nd in Kissimmee this year.  We are excited to participate in this event for the first time:

We will keep you posted,

Capt Bill
