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 December 5, 2010

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 12/05/10

   A cold snap arrived mid-week with air temperatures in the 40s and dropped the water temp into the low 60s here in the backcountry. Not as brutal as some of our friends have been experiencing up north but still cold for this area. It sounds like we are in store for more cold arriving again next week. During these cold periods snook are looking for warmth in either shallow water or creeks that drain these shallow bays, as well as deeper warm water pockets.  Small patterns are the ticket when fishing in shallow water conditions. Redfish continue to be found on the outside points and oyster bars.  Mid-day conditions will often be your best bet when it gets cold with the warmer water and sun overhead for good visibility.

   I fished on Wednesday just as this front rolled in and it was tough for sure with the wind and cloud cover. We managed to hook one small snook on a new fly I have been testing (more on this soon after some modifications) and took a couple of shots at some tarpon rolling before we decided to call it a wrap.

   In the meantime we have been busy with holiday orders, adding new items to our store and getting ready for the season ourselves.

Stay warm and we will keep you posted,

Capt Bill
