Fishing Charters Key West Fly Fishing __HOT__

As the conditions start to change we are also seeing a change in the fishing. Our summertime species are reacting to the cooler water temperatures and starting to thin out. At the same time our winter time species are beginning to load up the backcountry. With the variety of life and bait that is coming inshore, all of the predators are following suit. Jacks, barracuda, snapper, grouper, sharks and many more will continue to fill in as the next couple months and weeks go by.

Welcome to Key West Fly Fishing in the fabulous Florida Keys. The Florida Keys are home to incredible saltwater fly fishing for massive tarpon, giant permit and plentiful bonefish. Key West fly fishing for permit in particular is better than anywhere else on the planet. Fly fishing in the Keys is challenging, at times technical, and extremely rewarding. Some of the best anglers and fly fishing guides in the world call Key West and the Florida Keys home for this reason.

Key West fly fishing for tarpon is must for any serious saltwater fly fisherman. The sport was pioneered on the flats of the Florida Keys and Key West. These waters are steeped in tradition and we continue to push the envelope in them today. The Keys were, and still are the place to fly fish for tarpon. Anglers from around the world flock here in the spring for the annual tarpon migration. That being said we have a terrific tarpon fishery for resident fish year round. Key West and the Marquesas Keys are famous in tarpon fishing circles for a reason. Visit my page fly fishing for tarpon in Key West.

Key West is one funky place to say the least. It is made up of eclectic people who find comfort at the end of the road. It is a place where you can be yourself however wacky that self may be. It really is paradise for the right kind of person. I knew I was home within the first hour of being here. Flats fishing was born in the Florida Keys and wind and tides still hold sway . The Florida Keys are to salt fly fishing what Yankee Stadium is to baseball. No other fishery combines such great fishing and such a cool place. I am proud to call it home.

The crown jewel of Key West fishing is the Marquesas Keys 25 miles due west. You can step back in time when you are fly fishing in the Marquesas. The area is much the same as it was thousands of years ago. The Marquesas support a staggering array of marine life, and game fish are abundant. The permit fishing is extraordinary on most days, and these islands hold more tarpon than anywhere else in the Florida Keys. Be sure to visit my Marquesas Keys page for all the details and let me know if you would like to fish there during your stay in Key West.

This fishing mecca consists of numerous uninhabited mangrove islands, well protected bays, turtle grass basins, deep channels and endless flats. We are already 100 miles off shore, so you know we don't have to go far to find fish.

Having a U.S. Coast Guard Captains License as well as an outfitters license in Montana, has given Jimi a well rounded approach to fishing.

Fishermen from all over the world rank Key West fly fishing as some of the best available anywhere. Stalking shallow water flats around the Lower Keys with a fly rod in hand can be both exciting and relaxing for both young and old alike. Whether you are returning to settle a score with the tarpon that got away, or going to Key West for the first time to try your hand at fly fishing, you can find great experiences there all year long!

In fly fishing, fish are caught by using artificial lines that are cast with a fly rod and a fly line. The fly line is heavy enough to cast in order to send the fly to the target. Offshore saltwater species of fish are usually attracted to the fly by chumming with small baitfish, or teasing the fish to the boat by trolling a large hookless lure.

Popular Key West fly fishing targets are tarpon, barracuda, crevalle jacks, permit, and bonefish, and the number and type of fish on the flats vary from month to month. Permit fishing has become increasingly popular with a tournament in March called the March Merkin and one in July called the Del Brown Invitational. Fish come to the flats hungry and ready to latch on to your bait, and give you some great excitement fly fishing! 041b061a72
