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 - June 30, 2011

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 06/30/11

  Since my last report we have finally started getting afternoon showers most days with some significant accumulation of much needed rain. Summer has arrived in the Everglades; the rains have cooled the water down and improved our fishing. Be sure to pack your bug spray when coming down to fish or any outdoor activities for that matter; the rains have brought out the mosquitoes in force.   

   Yesterday morning I fished with Dennis and Sonya Co from Pittsburg, PA, both first time saltwater anglers. As we came out into the 10k, I noticed a large school of fish crashing on bait just off the main channel. This would be the perfect opportunity, I thought, to let them catch some fish and work on their saltwater skills. Mackerel, jack crevalle and ladyfish were everywhere and hit the fly with abandon. We spent about an hour or so honing their casting, retrieve and hook set on these fish before heading out into the islands.

   Our first stop put us at a small creek mouth on the last half of the incoming. I put on a small white popper and before we got to the creek Dennis rolled a nice red that just did not eat the fly.  Dennis made the perfect cast at the creek mouth and two big reds rushed the popper and one grabbed it. The fish surged hard under the boat and broke off on the edge before he could clear the line. A little further down the shore I spotted a nice snook cruising along. Shots were fired but no take. By noon the tide had topped out and it was time to head back to the Port. Great time was had by all.

We will keep you posted,

Capt. Bill
