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 - March 14, 2011

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 03/14/11

    A cool front moved through over the weekend, dropping the water temperature and moving the fish around. On a scouting trip before the front, I found about a dozen nice tarpon in a few stops I made just before dark, but was concerned they may move out before my Sunday trip with Coach Jeff Fisher of NFL fame.

   At first light yesterday Jeff and I pulled into one of the bays that held the tarpon but found no signs. I figured either the fish had moved on or they were there and just not showing themselves. We moved on thinking we would return later in the day when the water had a chance to warm up. On our second stop we were looking for redfish but found the back bays too dirty for sight fishing. We then made a run down south and to the outside to find a small bay with a good number of shots at some nice reds and two follows by tarpon over 100 pounds. We found a lot of fish but catching was a different story. We just could not put the deal together. On the way home we found one more big tarpon, laid up and just ready for the perfect cast. But for whatever reason before we were even close, it swirled, headed right at us and came within a couple feet of the boat before disappearing beneath us; it just was not meant to be.

   On the way back we talked about how tough this fishing can be, yet how rewarding it can be and what a great day we had.

We will keep you posted,
