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 - June 20, 2011

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 06/20/11

   The hot dry weather continues here in all of south Florida with very little rain this year. We are experiencing some of the lowest water levels in 80 years according to the USGS. Usually by June you can set your watch to the afternoon thunderstorms that build and cool things off a bit. My theory is that the lack of fresh water outflow has affected the resident tarpon fishing. I am still finding tarpon, but not in the numbers we usually see here this time of year.

   I made the run to Harney and Broad Rivers yesterday with Jim Wilson at first light. What a beautiful morning in the Everglades as we skimmed along the coast watching the sun come up and the cumulus clouds over the Gulf catch the first light.  We did not have much time to fish before the wind hit us directly from the south blowing steady but we did find a few tarpon and Jim caught a nice snook. We decided to fish the bights on the way home but the incoming tide and wind pretty much shut it down by the time we passed this area.  We found most bays with bait but the wind and off colored water on the incoming had us back to the dock early.

We will keep you posted,

Capt Bill
