  1. Default Flats Fishing in Naples, FL - Guide recommendations or local tips welcome!

    I'll be visiting the In-laws in Naples, FL the last week of Feb and I'm looking to try my hand at some flats fly fishing while I'm there. I'm from New England and I'm a newbie. I've been at it with a fly rod for about 1 year and I'd say my casting is "decent"...tight-ish loops, double haul, etc...

    Anyway I'd love to catch some Bonefish/Permit/baby Tarpon... anything really and I was considering hiring a guide for a half day as my budget is slim.

    Can anyone recommend a decent flats guide that won't break the bank OR offer any info on how to access some decent flats fishing areas by foot?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm interested to see what kind of response you get. I posted a similar question not too long ago and got some very helpful tips. The thread is "February in Florida". I'm pretty much in a similar experience bracket.

    Yeah I haven't had much response yet. A google search turns up quite a few guides in FL so I'll probably just find someone online. Although I was hoping for some personal experiences/references. I just hope I didn't offend anyone by asking about a budget friendly guide service. I'm all for paying people what they're worth. I'm just at my budgetary limit for that particular family trip. I'll check out your thread. Thanks for the reply.

    I've never fished down there, but you might be interested in listening to Norm Zeigler's episode "Snook on a Fly" that was on Ask About Fly Fishing Internet Radio. Norm has a fly shop on Sanibel Island which is about 40 miles north of Naples.
