Florida Keys Fly Fishing

Florida Keys Fly Fishing Guides

Saltwater fly fishing inevitably leads you to pursue the big three. Permit, tarpon, and bonefish on the fly. Fly fishermen who say they aren’t interested in catching the trifecta are missing out on the biggest thrill in fly fishing. Something about the pursuit of these fish changes you. Hunting the crown jewels of saltwater fly fishing is extremely addicting. It is punctuated by crushing lows and incredible highs where time flies by and mere moments seem like hours. I have forged friendships chasing these fish that I treasure more than I can write. It’s an odd mix of going to war and trying to win the hearts of the hottest girls on the planet. I know that if you put your time in, and persist you will never be the same. I have seen it time and time again on the flats of the Florida Keys.

Florida Keys Permit Fly Fishing

The fly fishing for permit in the Florida Keys is second to none. If you want BIG permit that tail and eat flies you have came to the right place. The best place in fact. In my opinion the only place. I’m not talking about the 5lb fish that eat bonefish flies in Belize. No, these are the magazine cover fish that eat 1/0 crab flies and will make your knees knock so hard I’ve seen people fall off the platform casting to them.

Florida Keys Fly Fishing For Tarpon

The Florida Keys and fly fishing for tarpon are synonymous. The sport was pioneered on the flats of the Florida Keys. These waters around Big Pine Key are steeped in tradition and names like Williams, Apte and Huff are legendary. The Keys was, and still is the place to fly fish for tarpon. It is a year round fishery, but anglers from around the globe flock here April through June. During the migration schools numbering in the hundreds make thier way across our oceanside flats. Florida Keys fly fishing is world famous for good reason. Visit my page fly fishing for tarpon in the Florida Keys.

Fly Fishing The Florida Keys For Bonefish

Fly Fishing for bonefish on the flats of the Florida Keys is different than any other fishery in the world. Double digit bonefish belly crawl the flats around the Middle Keys within casting range of the Overseas highway. Huge, wary fish that demand patience and can humble anyone. Our average bonefish in the keys is 4-6lbs and they eat big flies that would scare away any Bahamian guide. Bonefishing the Keys is about quality and trophy fish. More bonefish world records have been set here than anywhere else on the planet. For all the skinny check out my page about fly fishing for bonefish in the Florida Keys.
