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.

We look forward to hearing from you,

Fishing Report - March 1, 2011

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 03/03/11

     It is almost Spring and it feels like it here in the 10k this week. Our temperatures have climbed up into the 80s and the water is getting warmer. Steady south winds are also helping  the water temperature bringing warm water from the south along with a few early tarpon starting to show. This wind has really got the water churned up making for some tough sight fishing conditions both on the outside and back bays. 
     We are seeing a lot of bait around with the warming trend. Redfish are around but fishing has been spotty depending on the day. If you find a calm morning, head out into the Gulf and look for some triple tail on the crab buoys. These guys eat a fly readily and really have some shoulders on them. A couple of 15 pound plus fish were caught here this week. Throw a POI Shrimp or DNA Reducer for these guys.
     Trout are also a good target over the grass flats when the wind is down. Fish a Clouser or one of my favorite patterns, the Beach Bug.

We will keep you posted,
Capt Bill
