Fly Fishing Tampa Bay, Orlando, Crystal River

Posted in Uncategorized on August 18th, 2016 by Administrator

Fall fall fishing is off to an early start with an arrival of loads of baitfish and the typical fall species. Large baitfish schools are showing up and down Tampa Bay and along Florida’s Gulf Coast.

Feeding on them is a plethora of species to target on fly. False albacore, mackerel, big jacks, Cobia, and tarpon all get in on the action. Big schools of tailing redfish also make for some great fly fishing action.

I have to say the next few months a fly fisherman can target what ever species they want! If you are traveling to Orlando, Disney, or along the coast from Sarasota to Crystal River, we have fly and light tackle fishing trips just a short drive away.

Get out there and wet a line!!

Tampa Fly Fishing, Anna Maria, St Pete, Crystal River

Posted in Uncategorized on July 7th, 2016 by Administrator

Fly fishing Tampa Bay for tarpon is winding down. We have had a great season fishing hard the past few months. Many Fly fishing anglers both new and old caught plenty of giant tarpon and a few small ones too. It’s always the most fun having a non experiened saltwater fly fisherman hook into their first big fish.

The Late Summer/Early Fall fly fishing season is fast approaching! This is actually our favorite time of year to fish! You can target just about any species on fly. Get in touch for some good tides for tailing redfish or to get on the run of false albacore.

So get out there and wet a line!!

Fly fishing Anna Maria Island, St Pete Beach, on up the coast to Crystal River has been nothing but good times over the holidays. Many family and begining fly fisherman took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and caught a variety of species on fly and light tackle.  This is a great time of year for these types of trips. Snook, mackerel, trout, ladykillers, and huge jacks were cooperative and rewarded anglers with great action.  Sightfishing snook has been fun and the skinny water Redfishing should pick up as the cold air  is finally starting to push through. If you are in town this winter make sure to give fly fishing and light tackle fishing a try for a new experience!

Anna Maria fly fishing, St Pete Beach, Tampa Bay

Posted in Uncategorized on November 15th, 2015 by Administrator

Fly fishing Tampa Bay and Anna Maria island  has been great this past month even with the unusually warm weather. Redish, snook, false albacore, and a few tarpon have been the targets lately. With daytime temps in the low 90’s at times its been feeling like late summer fishing! As I write this a hint of Fall is finally starting to show itself though. Look for shallow water Redfishing to get good with post front conditions. Fly fishing Tampa bay and along the Nature coast will produce good opportunities to fly fish for redfish the next few months.  Fly fishing for snook in the protected mangove bays will also be a good option. Trout big mackerel and jacks are plentiful right now and great fly targets. I look forward to a great holiday season!

Tampa Bay Fly Fishing, Anna Maria Island

Posted in Uncategorized on September 28th, 2015 by Administrator

There is a hint of Fall in the air and the fish feel it too. Fall fly fishing patterns have started. Seasonal fish are feeding on bait schools of the beaches and in the Bay. Fly fishing false albacore, tarpon, mackerel, and Cobia are on the top of the list.  Redfish are schooled up and feeding over thick grass. Snook are a great fly fishing target as well the next few months.

Another great tarpon season has come to a close! We has a great season catching lots of giant tarpon on fly. The highlight would be an absolute giant, well over 200 pounds  a first time tarpon angler landed on an 11wt Sage Method. Although the real best part of fly fishing is all the great friends/anglers I get to share the skiff with every season!

With the end of tarpon season came  a new arrival, a baby boy! My wife and 7 year old welcomed the  new addition to the family August 8th.  A future tarpon slayer for sure!

Fly fishing Tampa has been great the past few months! The fly fishing for snook has really picked up this year. It’s amazing how well they have come back since the freeze of 2010.  Now you can target any mangrove store and get into good numbers of quality snook. Night time fly fishing has been a good option for those who have limited schedules. We will look to target giant tarpon on fly here shortly! Looking forward to another great tarpon season!

Need Warm Weather? Fly Fishing Anna Maria, Fly Fishing Tampa, St Pete Beach

Posted in Uncategorized on January 20th, 2015 by Administrator

Looking for a break from the cold?? No snow here on Florida’s West coast! We are still going strong and winter fly fishing opportunities have been great. Snook fishing has really picked up this year and fish are in good numbers. Trout fishing has been decent with some good sized fish being caught. If you are a novice fly angler or have little saltwater experience, Now is the time to fine tune your skills. The best way to get better at fly fishing is to get out on the water. Tarpon season is on the horizon as well. Now is the time to enjoy  a break from winter and enjoy Florida’s fishing, or to start planning a fly fishing trip this spring.

Fishing Anna Maria Island, Fly Fishing Tampa,Fly Fishing Homosassa

Posted in Uncategorized on December 5th, 2014 by Administrator

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving Holiday! Fly fishing Anna Maria Island, St Pete Beach and Tampa was good times as always over the Holiday. Weather is cooling which will make fly fishing for redfish our primary target. Unlike most redfishing destinations the Tampa Bay area offers a unique sight fishing experience which can be compared to bonefishing over sand in very clear water. Night fly fishing for snook is still a good option as long as the temps are mild.

Fly fishing Tampa Bay, Anna Maria Island, and Homosassa has been great the past few weeks. Cool weather has finally settled in and the sight fishing on fly is heating up. Fly fishing for snook and redfish has been steady. With the winter low tides getting lower and lower, the conditions for fly fishing redfish will become favorable. The fly fishing for false albacore has been the best in years. Tarpon fishing has slowed with the cooler weather. Now is the time to get those dates for next years spring/summer fly fishing for tarpon season.

Fly Fishing Tampa, St. Pete Beach, Anna Maria “Fall Fly Fishing”

Posted in Uncategorized on September 17th, 2014 by Administrator

Fall fly fishing tampa bay is creeping up on us. We are able to target almost any inshore or nearshore species we have with a fly. Many of these fish will be feeding heavily on bait schools or migrating through the area during the next few months. With loads of fish out there and temperatures becoming more mild,there is no better time to get out on the water with a fly rod!

Tampa Fly Fishing, Sarasota Fly Fishing Tarpon

Posted in Uncategorized on August 6th, 2014 by Administrator

Fly Fishing Tampa, Sarasota for big tarpon has finally winding down! It’s been a great season and a busy one! Thank you to all who fished with me for giant tarpon on fly this season! I look forward to next season already.

This Month we still have a chance for tarpon on fly as well as a variety of other species. The next few months offer some great action for tailing redfish in skinny water. Lots of fish will get keyed in on the many large baitfish schools around the bay. This will provide some fantastic action for fly fisherman. Let’s not forget you can beat the heat and catch many species including tarpon, snook and redfish late evening and early mornings. Night time fishing is at its best the next few months. So get out there and wet a line!!

Fly fishing Tampa, Sarasota Bay has the weather up and down but the fishing keeps on getting better. Still grinding at the redfish on fly. The better sightfishing redfish tide days are getting shorter and we will be looking to transition to tarpon on fly soon. There are lots of trout, Mackerel, Pompano ready and willing to take clouser flies any time and get that 7wt bent. Get out there and wet a line!!!

Fly fishing the Tampa, Sarasota areas had been great between the fronts. When the suns out the Redfish are wadded up in big schools and eating flies well. Our fishing has been over white sand and is more like bonefishing than redfishing. Getting geared up for tarpon season. Looking forward to throwing flies at some big sardines!
