Evening Secret Blog – Saltwater fly fishing in the Florida Keys

leave a comment »

Fly Fishing in saltwater has become so popular in the last twenty five years in the Florida Keys that the Bonefish census board determined each fish is “worth” about 3,000.00. This is mostly due to the overwhelming amount of tourist who visit the Florida Keys each year to go fishing.
Fly fishing has always been a known sport amoung its enthusasts but not until the last few decades has it sparked an interest in many more anglers. It provides the ultimate challenge to many, the cast must be perfec…

Evening Secret Blog – Without Market Research You Could Find Yourself Fishing In An Empty Pond

leave a comment »

I’ve never been much of a fisherman. Sitting in a small boat for hours watching a red and white bobber float atop the water holds about as much interest for me as watching paint dry. My old man, on the other hand, would have rather fished than breathe. In fact, his favorite Bible quote was: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and he’ll sit in the boat and drink beer with you for life.” Needless to say, my old man wasn’t much of a Bible scholar, but he was one heck …

leave a comment »

Summer is about gone and the days are getting cooler. Just right for fishing on the flats and in the backcountry.
In Florida Bay and Flamingo the Snook fishing has been good to us. The Reds have been cruising the flats. With the cooler weather and higher water the reds are closer to the mangroves. At least the bugs aren’t out biting like they were in mid summer.
For the rest of October we’re looking forward to catching Bonefish, Snook ,Reds and small Tarpon.

Evening Secret Blog – Fly Fishing Shock Tactics

leave a comment »

Your choice of fly on any given day could have been selected for any number of reasons.I have frequently met people fly fishing, who have selected the fly they are using based on their favourite colours or because they managed to catch a trout with it last time they used it, (which could have been months ago), or because the fishery owner/bailiff has recommended it as the best fly to use on this fishery.But which fly to use on a very hard day, when any interest from the trout is clearly not ther…



How is it that in an age of technology and electronics, something as ‘primitive’ as bass fishing is luring in new avid anglers year after year. So much so that as soon as they hear something new and fancy that catches their interests, they will dive into it and try to get as much out of it as possible. One common theme running through bass anglers (tournament or recreational) is “Where are the what…? Where are the bass!” Even for the experts. When they are fishing in a body of water that they…

Evening Secret Blog – Ultra-Light Fishing Meets Ultra-Light Hiking

leave a comment »

The image of a boy with his cane pole and a can of worms heading down a dirt path toward the “old fishing hole” has been burned into our minds by the likes of Norman Rockwell. That image, of the most basic of fishing tools, may warm our hearts but it is as far removed from the reality of fishing today as Neanderthal’s spear is from a modern rocket launcher.
The keyword in modern fishing is specialization; the boy with the cane pole could catch all the sunfish and catfish he wanted, but his chanc…

Evening Secret Blog – Which fishing technique do you prefer?

leave a comment »

Fly Fishing
Ancient Macedonian pottery paintings indicate that fly fishing, that is, fishing with
a lure constructed of feathers to imitate an insect, was the first form of angling
with a rod. Fly fishing differs from most other disciplines of fishing today because
the fly must be cast on a fly rod, a very whippy, limber pole which is bent or
“loaded” by a fly line. Whereas a bait fisherman uses the weight of his lure or bait
to pull line out behind it when thrown, a fly fisher uses the wei…
