Whether you're looking for a couple hours of fly casting instruction, or a multiple day fly fishing vacation in a bed and breakfast, you'll find the right fly fishing trip at the Redfish Landing.

  This young man caught this 40 inch Red off the dock while visiting his grand parents during their stay at Redfish Landing.



  Yes, August is here and the Tarpon have returned to the rivers and back country.
Lynn Skipper had fun with his 10wt outfit on Sunday morning tackling a 50# tarpon in the river.
Tarpon are active at sunrise and snook will be biting at night going into the full moon.

Fishing Platform

Versatility can turn a poor fishing day into a productive fishing adventure.

Rich and Gin Ford traveled from Bristol, England to join Leslie and I on Big Pine Key. Hopefully, to hook up on their first tarpon. We cast to some big boys on the oceanside only to be frustrated by their refusals.
