The best part of fly fishing the Everglades is that it can be done all year round.  No matter the weather condition, there is always a place to hide in the Everglades.  We mostly target Tarpon, Redfish, and Snook with a fly rod but there are plenty of other options as well.  Other species that may be encountered here in Everglades National Park are Black Drum, Seatrout, Shark, Tripletail, Permit, Jacks, and Ladyfish. 

TARPON-Tarpon can be caught year round but the peak season is March through July.  The can be found from the Gulf all the way to the deep backcountry.  The range in size from 5lbs to over 150lb so having the right setup is important.  I recommend using a 10-12wt rod for the bigger fish and 8wt-9wt for the juvenile tarpon.

SNOOK- Snook are some of the most exciting the fish to target with a fly rod.  We sight fish snook along the mangrove shorelines and up on the flats.  These fish are anywhere from 3lbs-15lbs, so I recommend an 8wt-9wt rod.

REDFISH- These fish are found all over the glades.  We target them tailing up on the grass flats of Florida Bay, along the Gulf Coast of the Glades and deep in the backcountry.  There range from about 3lbs to over 12lbs and I like using a 6wt-9wt rod.
