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.

Fishing Report - February 1, 2011

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 01/31/11

   I just returned from a week long duck & goose hunting trip to Arkansas with Dale Spartas on a photo shoot for a couple of outdoor magazines, so no fishing until yesterday. And yes, the hunting is incredible. Stuttgart is the center of the universe for waterfowl. Many thanks to Richard Davies, Director Arkansas Dept. of Tourism, Hoot Gibson, Goosebusters; Jim Glover's Wildwood Camp and Dave Carrington from Avery Outdoors. The hunting was the great but the people we met were outstanding, they made our trip.

   Just when we get some warm weather it seems another cold front comes through and drops the water temperature again. Yesterday Gretchen and I hit a couple of the outside points exploring and looking for fish but found few with no good shots. We did, however, see some baitfish in a few of the areas we stopped at -- a good sign. The water was clear but the south wind blowing at a steady 15 knots limited the spots we could fish.

    Other captains in the area are reporting a few nice reds, good numbers of smaller reds and trout in the holes and grass flats. We have some upcoming trips this week and will keep you posted.
