Salt Water Fly Fishing closest to Orlando...Help Please :)
Hey guys, My wife and I are coming out to Orlando during christmas break. I am dying to try my hand at salt water fly fishing and would love to catch a bone fish or other salt water fish. I have been cruising the internet and found that most of the permit and bonefish are around the Keys which is a decent drive from Orlando. So I was hoping someone could help me out and point me towards the closest place to Orlando where I can catch some salt water fish.
Also I realize I may not be coming at t he best time of year so any pointers you can give me and recommended flies would be great. I am not looking for any hot spots just a good general area to wade in and catch some fish.
I have a Sage Vxi 9wt salt water rod and lamson reel, will this be enough? and what fish should I target?
Thanks in advance everyone, I really appreciate it.
