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 - 01/12/2011

   The fishing this week has been hit and miss with some tough conditions here the last few days.  I fished yesterday before the arrival of our next cold front with David Shotwell from Michigan. The wind direction had shifted to the south east and blew a steady 10-15 making many of our back bays pretty dirty.  We did find a couple lees with some nice reds but no good shots - it happens. We were on top of many of the fish before we saw them due to the visibility.  There are some nice fish around but the wind and visibility definitely make them a challenge. The upcoming forecast is for a few days of cold temps with steady warming towards next week. This will help a bunch and the fish should be hungry after the cold blast.

   It seems the whole country is under a deep freeze this week. CNN reported that there is snow on the ground in 49 of the 50 states. Florida is the only state without the white stuff - so far!

Grab a cup of coffee, tie some flies, check the equipment and stay warm.

We will keep you posted,

Capt Bill
