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 18, 2010

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 02/18/11

    The warmer water last week brought the first push of tarpon we have seen into the 10k. I spotted a pod of larger fish right at dark on Thursday and went back the next morning to fish them and they had already moved on as another small front moved through.  We are also seeing more juvenile tarpon activity here in the basin as the water warms.

   Wednesday I ran south with a friend looking for tarpon. We did not find any but did find one large snook laid up in a bay and a couple of nice reds on an oyster bar off a small island.  A couple of shots but no takers.

   With the full moon there are some extreme low tides first thing in the morning and a flood tide by noon making the morning the best bet for sight fishing. The good news is that our forecast for the next week is for some steadily warming temperatures that will help bring the water temperature up and hopefully kickoff some tarpon fishing.

We will keep you posted,

Capt Bill Baldus
