Everglades Fly Fishing Guide

Everglades Fly Fishing Guide

The best part of fly fishing the Everglades is that it can be done all year round. No matter the weather condition, there is always a place to hide in the Everglades. We mostly target Tarpon, Redfish, and Snook with a fly rod but there are plenty of other options as well. Other species that we may encounter in Everglades National Park are Black Drum, Seatrout, Shark, Tripletail, Permit, Jacks, and Ladyfish. Another great thing about the Everglades is, if the weather is warm, you can target tarpon all year round.  There is no other place in the world that you can do that.   Come experience the some of the best fly fishing with top Everglades fly fishing guide, Capt. Jason Sullivan

TARPON– Tarpon can be caught year round, but the peak season is March through July. They can be found from the Gulf all the way to the deep backcountry. They range in size from 5lbs to over 150lb, so having the right setup is important. I recommend using a 10wt-12wt rod for the bigger fish, and 8wt-9wt for the juvenile tarpon.

SNOOK– Snook are some of the most exciting fish to target with a fly rod. We sight fish snook along the mangrove shorelines and up on the flats. These fish are anywhere from 3lbs-15lbs, so I recommend a 8wt-9wt rod.

REDFISH– These fish are found all over the glades. We target them tailing up on the grass flats of Florida Bay, along the Gulf Coast of the Glades, and deep in the backcountry. They range from about 3lbs to over 12lbs, so I like using a 6wt-9wt rod.
