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 NaplesMarco IslandEverglades 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 flies. 

We look forward to hearing from you, 
Capt Bill

Fishing Report - September 8, 2011

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 09/08/11

   In my June and July fishing reports I commented about the lack of rain; be careful of what you wish for......  It has rained here a bunch in August and the Glades are absolutely full of water.

   We have not fished this week; "the Gulf is pissed off" as Capt Rob Modys said so perfectly the other day. The wind has been blowing steady most days making for dirty water out front and in the back. Sight fishing is tough in these conditions. There are some nice ten to twenty pound tarpon are hanging in the freshwater outflows, try a Green Lantern.....   I have been tying some new flies, adding new inventory and getting ready for an upcoming bonefish trip. Look for some cool new fly fishing products in our online catalog very soon.

   We have heard from a number of friends up-north affected by Hurricane Irene and wish them all the best through their recovery from the flooding.

We will keep you posted,

Capt Bill Baldus
