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 - May 28, 2011

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 05/28/11

   Our fishing has been hit and miss this last week. One day it's good and the next it is tough. Tarpon and redfish still being the best targets.  The water clarity is still poor on the higher tides with your best bet on the either side of the low for sight fishing.

   We are seeing a few large snook coming in from the Gulf on the hunt for food in the backwaters. They are few and far between but this is the time of the year to take a big fish on the fly. One of the fish we spotted last week still had a remora attached to its side.  Glass minnows, pilchards and finger mullet are plentiful in most of the bays and shorelines.

   Yesterday was a spectacular morning in the 10,000 Islands with the huge cumulus clouds over the Gulf at sunrise and the distant sound of thunder. A reminder of summer approaching.  Ed Evans and I poled across a small bay at first light on our hunt for tarpon. We found a few rolling fish on our first stop but not consistent. We ran further south and found a about a half dozen nice fish, a few shots but no takers. By noon the water was high and pretty much shut things down until later in the afternoon when we found a few reds in very skinny water.

We will keep you posted,

Capt Bill Baldus
