Southwest Florida Fishing

Florida Fly Fishing

Welcome to the world of fly fishing in sunny Southwest Florida. That's right, fly fishing isn't just limited to freshwater rivers, creeks and lakes. Although fly fishing has been practiced here for over a century, it has been a well-kept secret until a few years ago. Well, the secret is out! Not only are the local estuaries, creeks and bays loaded with many varieties of game fish, most of these species are readily fooled by well-tied and presented flies. And these fly fishing opportunities exist year-round; whatever the season or month, there are several species ready to attack your fly and show you their speed and endurance.

So enjoy the fishing reports and tackle/accessory offerings of our site sponsors, and read Don Phillips' article series designed to introduce you to the tools and techniques of our sport. And please do come and fish with us at your earliest opportunity.
