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 22, 2010

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 11/05/10


            I fished the crew from Cheeky Fly Fishing yesterday testing their new series of fly reel prototypes they brought with them on their tour through Florida. Very cool reels, well designed and stunning looks. Look for them to be in production by mid-2011.

            We started late in the day with not the best tide for sight fishing. We found a few tarpon showing in the first bay we stopped at but the rolls were not consistent and no takers. Our next stop was far to the south where we found some nice reds and tarpon earlier in the week but too much water today. We finally connected with a nice snook at a small creek mouth as the tide turned. It came unbuttoned on the first jump. We found both small glass minnows and larger baits in most of the spots we stopped at.

            There were a lot of ladyfish willing to eat the fly as we worked the shore on our way back. Short trip and not a lot of takers but great to meet these guys and have a chance to see the next generation of fly reels in action.

We will keep you posted,

Capt Bill Baldus
