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 October 15, 2010

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 11/05/10


            The last few days here in the 10k you could see the telltale circular clouds of hurricane Paula as it passed over Cuba. Our weather was surprisingly nice with moderate winds and some great fishing. The clouds made for some tougher sight fishing but we were still able to find some nice reds, snook and tarpon this week.

            Yesterday I fished Jacob Anderson from Denmark on his first saltwater trip to the Everglades. We were able to find some nice tarpon first thing in the morning and he had four takes and a hooked a nice 40-50lb fish that came unbuttoned on the first jump. Jail Bait in pumpkin and chartreuse was the fly.

            We had a great outgoing tide in the afternoon and found both redfish and snook on the outside points. Jacob landed two nice reds in the mid 20’s and two smaller snook on the first two points that we fished. We are seeing some larger redfish as our water cools off a bit. The fly of choice was a 10k Baitfish in size 1/0. 

We will keep you posted,

Capt. Bill Baldus
