Fly Fishing Charters

Trip Rates & Details

Fly fishing in saltwater is extremely rewarding but can be challenging and can be quite different than freshwater fly fishing. In freshwater when you spot a rising fish you can recast until you get that perfect drag free drift. In saltwater when sight fish a quick, accurate cast is necessary. A fly presented to close spooks the fish and too far away he doesn’t see it. Many times the conditions don’t allow for sight fishing so we blind cast, again accuracy is important as it’s extremely important to get the fly up tight to the mangroves. Fly fishing is one of the most exciting ways to fish in the backcountry of Southwest Florida. We’ve taught a lot of fly fishing classes in the past and are happy to and enjoy instructing.
