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 - July 10, 2011

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 07/10/11

   We have continued to receive much needed rain here in the Everglades and all of south Florida over the last week. The outflow of freshwater from our rivers have moved fish around and changed up our fishing.

   Jim Wilson and I fished yesterday. We stopped at a couple rivers first thing looking for tarpon on the top of the incoming but found no fish showing. We could feel the south wind start to build as we made our way up the islands headed west. Our first stop, we spotted a big redfish cruising in a slough off a river but could not get a shot before he moved off into deeper water.

    Jim caught a small snook off the edge of an oyster bar. It is really good to see more of these juvenile snook after the fish kill due to the freeze of last year. We are also seeing larger snook, far more than last year at this time. We applaud the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission for keeping the snook season closed on this coast for at least another year to let our stocks recover.

   The south wind had really cranked up by now. We stopped at a small bay and found a smaller red tipped up on some oysters. Jim made the cast but no interest as it moved into the trough.  As I polled out, we spotted a couple tarpon roll at the entrance to the bay. We waited, waited and waited some more; finally one rolled within reach, Jim took the shot but no take.

  A breezy day in the 10k, fished some old haunts, found a few fish and had a great time.

We will keep you posted,

Capt Bill
