Fort Myers Fly Fishing Charters
As life long fly fishermen we understand the challenges and the satisfaction that comes from a successful day of fly fishing. Unlike conventional tackle where it’s easy to cover a lot of water quickly, fly fishing is a finesse presentation and we realize that there is a limit to the number of casts you can make in a day. Our goal is to give our fly fishing clients the best odds of catching fish on any given cast. You can count on Capt Eric Anderson, and Capt Scott Anderson, the top Fort Myers fly fishing guides to help you get the most out of every cast and every hour of your Fort Myers Fly fishing charter.

Fish We Catch
Fish We Catch
Fort Myers Fly Fishing For Spec Trout
Fort Myers Fly Fishing For Snook
The Fort Myers area of Southwest FL has some of the best Snook fishing in the state. Our Snook fishing is consistent the entire year, the area we fish and the tactics we use change as the Snook move during the year. In the cold water months of November, December, January, and early February the Snook move from the bays and flats into the warmer waters of the rivers and residential canals.
This is one of the best times of the year to go on a night fishing charter for Snook. Our Fort Myers night fishing charters are a client favorite and the fishing is excellent. Since it gets dark early you don’t have to stay out late to have great fishing. As the water warms in early spring the Snook will slowly move from the canals and rivers onto the grass flats, Mangrove shorelines, and Oyster bars of Estero Bay.
They enjoy the warmer water and the bright sun to feed heavily in anticipation of the upcoming spawning run. Starting about the middle of April the biggest fish will have already moved from the grass flats out to the passes and beaches. They will be followed by the smaller males and females within a few weeks. This can be some of the best Snook fishing of the year, so if you are visiting Fort Myers from March thru April you have to experience the excitement of a fishing charter for Snook.
Fort Myers Fly Fishing For Redfish
The bays and estuaries in the Fort Myers area of Southwest FL is a great area for Redfish. The Red Tide algae bloom decimated their numbers in 2017 to 2019. They are recovering nicely now and we are once again catching Redfish. The best months for Fort Myers Fly Fishing for Redfish are early spring thru mid November. See the best times to fish chart above for the best months.
If you have Redfish on your bucket list or just really want to catch them let us know and we can plan a Fort Myers Inshore charter for you that will concentrate only on Redfish.
