Fly Fishing For Bonefish Key West

Key West for fly fishing for bonefish? Yes indeed. With a little bit of skill you can actually catch one. Unlike their Islamorada cousins our Key West bonefish are not all that smart. In fact they are kind of dumb, why? they have not seen 300 flats fishing guides every day for the last 20 years. Key West is a fishery that is not all that beaten. If you really want to get away, look into fishing for bonefish with me fishing in the Marquesas Keys a fantastic bonefishing mecca.

fly fishing for bonefish on the flatsKey West bonefish range in size from 5 -10 lbs. Offering the angler challenging but feasible casts and once hooked up these fish really poor on the speed. I offer 8 wt fly rods for fly fishing for bonefish here. The gear I supply is Orvis, and G-Loomis with Orvis Mirage and Vortex fly fishing reels both right and left hand retrieve.

Range Of Difficulty

Bonefish on flyNot necessarily the next most difficult however it can be tough. A good grasp on double haul mechanics are a must as the Wind and the fast moving flats boat coupled with a fast moving group of fish or a wary single mudding on the flat can offer the angler a challenge for presentation. Once hooked up Bonefish are notorious for blistering runs where good line management is a must. Bone fish that I get out to from Key West are not small fish. They start in the 7 lb range and go up to 12 and 13 lbs in certain areas and times of the year.

Fishing is supposed to be fun. If fly fishing gets you aggravated let me know and I will share with you the phone numbers of many talented fly fishing guides that enjoy fishing with grumpy fly fishermen. Personally I am not into it. I like for my clients to enjoy the day and leave the stress at the dock.
