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 5, 2011

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 06/05/11

   It has been warm and dry here in the Everglades with mid-day temperatures up into the 90s this week. We are still seeing the wind blow most days with a few really gusty days mid-week. There have been some great tides late in the day for sight fishing. Tarpon fishing has slowed down considerably with smaller resident fish being the main target.

   I fished with photographer and author, Dale Spartas of Bozeman, Montana this last week and we caught baby tarpon, snook and redfish. On Tuesday, the day started with a pretty steady wind from the east and dirty water; by late afternoon the wind switched around directly from the west and brought in some of the clearest water I have seen in a long time, making for perfect sight fishing conditions. We found some nice slot reds in the back of a bay working the oyster bars on the last hour of the outgoing. Dale made the perfect shot on his first cast and caught a great red. We continued to hit reds until the tide bottomed out and the fish moved off into deeper water.  The Illegal Alien was the fly of choice for the reds and the Green Lantern for tarpon and snook. Great week on the water - thanks, Dale.

We will keep you posted,

Capt Bill
