Picture yourself holding a carefully selected fly as you hold it and the lighter than air 9-weight fly rod selected for today’s battle. The Florida Bay, teaming with life, for a while seems deserted. And then, a fin suddenly pops up from the water and carves the still water’s surface – a prized fish grazes below.
Your artfully placed cast makes the tail pause…then a twitch of the fly makes the fin react and strike!
Whether you’re after redfish, bonefish, snook, tarpon or permit; snapper, grouper, cobia, sea trout or sharks – fly fishing brings the thrill of the hunt to the bow of the boat. If the rivers out west are where you usually wet your line, then you and Capt. Steve have something in common. He guided in Colorado for trout before seeking out Florida’s year-round fishing 13 years ago.
The techniques and tools used in saltwater fly fishing can be a bit different, but no matter. Capt. Steve will bring all the required tackle, and help you grow your angling abilities to include the demands of the ocean and its bounty. Never floated a fly before? Capt. Steve can schedule some pre-charter instruction, or coach as you dabble on board.
