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.

Fishing Report November 28, 2010

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 11/28/10

   A great week in the 10k with some skinny water conditions making for good sight fishing. We have had some cold fronts move through this week but not enough to affect our fishing much. Look for snook laid up on the inside points in shallow water. They are looking for warm water as temperatures cool off.

   Redfish continue to be the consistent target in both the backcountry and near the outside. These low water conditions make them easier to spot as they work the shorelines looking for crabs and small baitfish. Go slow and watch for a shadow or push. They are very spooky in these shallow water conditions. We drop back to a lighter rod and small flies in these conditions. A 6 or 7 weight, size 2 10K Baitfish and 20lb hard mono bite tippet a good combination.

   There are seeing good numbers of baitfish with schools of mackerel and jacks crashing on them. These fish are a fun target and a great way to use up some of your "second hand" flies.  Check out the grass flats with a chartreuse or pink Clouser if you are looking for trout. We found a fly a few years ago called a Beach Bug that has become my go-to trout and pompano pattern. It is tied similar to a Clouser but incorporates grey fox tail for the wing and orange rubber legs along the side. If you can't find the recipe, let me know and I will get you instructions.

We will keep you posted,
Capt Bill Baldus
