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 NaplesMarco IslandEverglades 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 flies. 

We look forward to hearing from you,

Fishing Report - July 27, 2011

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 07/27/11

   It has been hot, but not as hot as places way north of here from what I hear. Most days here are in the low 90s, very tropical with a sea breeze and beautiful clouds.

   Summer in the Everglades is incredible, quiet, amazing sunrises, small tarpon, a few redfish and snook on the beach. We have been busy tying some new patterns, writing and adding some new inventory to our store.

   Yesterday Gretchen said,"lets run out to the Cape, we have not been out to the grass flats on Cape Romano in some time". On our way there we detoured to Marker 8 in Goodland for lunch, best oysters anywhere. Right at Coon Key was a big tripletail, at least 10-12 pounds, right in the pass. Two shots, no take before it went down as a boat went by.....

The Cape had fish, fast fish, huge jacks, so hard to lead..   Gert did good...

Just as I turned the boat into the tide, there was the biggest permit we have ever seen, over 20 pounds tipping up along the deep edge of one of the fingers that run the shoal.  Gretchen had a shot, great cast, perfect, wrong fly, no cool......

Great day with Gert, we will keep you posted,

Capt Bill
