Florida Fly Fishing
Everglades National Park
This is a fascinating place to fish, not only is it a great place to hook the big one in both fresh and salt water but it is also a national park that your whole family can enjoy. There is wildlife everywhere, watch out for alligators! They sunbathe right on the road. The Everglades consist of a marsh-like environment as well as the well known “ten thousand islands” in the saltwater off Florida’s coast that one can kayak amidst. These islands are a maze of mangroves that you can boat in between and try to catch some fish. Shore-fishing in this park is not as prevalent as boat fishing. You can go fishing on a variety of different boats like a kayak, an airboat, or a motorboat. You can catch snapper, sea trout, bass and more, but remember it is against the law to remove things like coral and shells from the park.
Editor’s Note: It’s good to see innovative solutions to every day problems we face in fly fishing. An Earth shaking solution? No. End World hunger? Nuh uh. Make it a little easier to deal with that cable of crap we need to wrap on a hook? Well, yeah…and that’s enough. For now.
