We offer fly fishing charters on two different platforms bay boats and flats fishing boats. Both are designed with the shallows and getting way back in the islands in mind giving our anglers a great casting platform to fly fish from at any level. We can set the fly fishing trips up for hard core experienced anglers that want to sight fish Tarpon, Permit, Bonefish, Redfish and Snook. We can also set up for a little easier targets such as barracudas, shark, snappers, jacks and shallow water grouper..
Fly fishing charters are the same rates as backcountry fishing and flats fishing charters. We supply all the fly fishing gear, leaders an flies you will need to make a great day of it. Because we can only fish one person at a time we recommend that our anglers keep it to 2 or less on a boat. While one person is casting the other will have to wait their turn. The bay boats can carry up to 3, although we can do it, we don't recommend it.
Fly fishing for tarpon here in the Florida Keys has become very popular. This challenging sport requires a good long 60 + ft cast using a 12 wt fly rod with inside12" of accuracy at the presentation of the fly. Fly fishing for tarpon season starts in May traditionally and carries through the months of July in Key West and ends sooner in the upper Florida Keys fisheries. This is a maturational route for the tarpon. They come right down the beaches in the shallows.

There is really nothing like catching a trophy fish on your own fly rod - we get it. You are welcome to bring your own gear but please make sure it is up to the challenge of saltwater fly fishing. 7 - 12 wt rods with fast tips and 9+ ft long. For flats fishing we use a weight forward floating line. For tarpon fishing we use 11 and 12 weight lines both floating and intermediate for our needs here. Make sure your drag systems are large surface and disperse heat from friction well.
