Fly Fish the Everglades – Snook, Redfish, Tarpon
Join Josh McKown, Manager at our shop in Philipsburg, for 4 nights and 3 days of guided fly-fishing in the Everglades.
Fed by Lake Okeechobee and flowing at nearly 60 miles wide for over 100 miles South over a massive limestone shelf and slowly dumping into the ocean at the Southern tip of Florida, the Everglades are home to a complex system of swamps, marshes, pineland, and expansive mangrove forests that harbor a diverse population of wildlife and ecosystems. This is where we focus our fly-fishing efforts at one of the premier snook, redfish, and tarpon fisheries in the world.
When: March, 2021 (dates to be determined)

Why fly-fish the Everglades with us? We’re connected with professional, knowledgeable guides that can navigate endless backcountry waters where one left or right turn will seem like you’ve spun around to a different world without getting lost, and that are teeming with snook, redfish, and tarpon. We’ve been able to select well appointed, comfortable lodging, where you’ll have your own private room. We work with two local restaurants who will provide all our meals and ensure we won’t have to lift a finger to feed yourself. Your host will provide casting consultation and lessons, daily gear assessment, coordinate transportation to and from the docks and dinner, and guiding partners if needed. Bottom line is you’ll be taken care of on all aspects of the trip without lifting a finger, For those who are North of the sunbelt this is a great time to escape the winter blues and have world-class fishing right here in our own “backyard”!
