The Florida Keys presents some 4000 square miles of shallows filled with channels and banks where the primary species of interest to fly fisherman is the tarpon. The Florida Keys presents a wide variety of accommodation choices to the vacationer, from basic fish camps, to motels, to first class hotels. This along with very good weather year round and lots of other vacation activities to get involved in makes the florida keys a classic fly fishing destination.

The tarpon is one of the most powerful of all the game fish, frequently breaking tackle and shattering anglers egos. While tarpon is the primary fish targeted, other species that can be caught include bonefish, permit, snook, jacks, barracuda, snapper and even several kinds of shark. For the most part, only floating lines, not sinking lines, are needed in the keys.

When to Go
The keys have great weather all year round and annual average temperature is 25C. The peak tarpon season is Arpil through to June. Should note that while there is a lot of registered guides everywhere, it can be difficult to get one without giving prior notice.
