Hi Everyone, I have not fished this area but we have a member that likes to fish there. Unfortunately I don't remember the member's name. The information does not specifically address fly fishing. I think if you take your gear the guide will accommodate you. Just don't expect advise on flies or tackle. I looked over the lodge site and the guides site and nothing was mentioned about fly fishing. I finally found one sentence that refereed to fly fishing. So I would checked with the guide or lodge to see if he offers fly fishing. This is a nice area of Florida. Not far from the Swanee River with low population. I think it would be a nice trip. Frank
