  • Key West flats fishing is world class light tackle angling at its finest. Bonefish, Permit and Tarpon all call our shallows home. Fighting these fish of legend is not for the faint of heart. The angler's patience and perseverance is always rewarded.

    Bonefish the "Silver Ghosts" of the flats with mind bending runs, Permit with awe inspiring tenacity and the behemoth "Silver King" Tarpon exploding from the surface leaping high into the still morning air with violently shaking head, arched back and water spray all about you....this is what you came here for....the Flat's Grand Slam.

    Flats fishing is to some extent a technical endeavor requiring casting skills and light tackle expertise. However, our professional guides are patient instructors ensuring even the novice angler the ultimate fishing adventure. From small flats "skiff's" just large enough for two anglers, you will be poled into position before sight casting to your prey. Half hunting, half fishing, constantly stalking these weary thugs of the flats one should never measure the results of the day by the creel but rather by the accomplishment of successfully besting the ultimate shallow water warriors on the flats of Key West.

    Fishing the flats is much akin to an art form. Angler and guide working in silent tandem pursuing the ultimate light tackle and fly fishing experience. You traverse mere inches of pristine water, stealthily crossing the marl and broken bottoms of the most productive flats on the planet. You are in search of a quarry that has you outmatched and you are aware of it. Armed with expertise honed by years of experience on these very flats, your guide brings you face to face with the most sought after species in shallow water.

    Flats fishing has an unequalled appeal to sportsman and outdoor enthusiast alike. Explore the remote and isolated, endless expanses of crystal clear waters teeming with schools of bonefish, cruising Permit and brutish Tarpon accompanied by giant Barracuda and several species of Shark aggressively searching for your offering. Sight casting to the largest population of trophy sport fish imaginable. This is a "memories of a life time" experience for even the most seasoned pro angler, best when shared with a guide having equal intensity for your success.
