Sanibel Fly Fishing Charters

Capt Shawn Kelly Fly Fishing

The clear shallow waters of Sanibel & Captiva offer outstanding fly fishing! From beautiful Redfish, Trout and Snook to massive Tarpon and dozens of other species. Miles of shallow mangrove lined shorelines, vibrant grass flats and lively oyster bars are prime targets for avid fly fisherman. We have the proper gear, knowledge and experience to put you on the fish!

We often tie our own flies tailored to the natural forage, and can help instruct, point out the fishand help you deliver the perfect presentation.

Use our Fly Fishing Gear or Bring Your Own

You are welcome to utilize our top quality gear or bring your own. Please let us know before your planned trip date.

We also have a boat tailor made for Fly Fishing excursions. While you can fly fish out of almost anything, our Hell’s Bay Waterman makes it a whole lot easier to get into skinny water and navigate into the fish increasing your chances of landing that fish of a lifetime. The Hell’s Bay Waterman is a classic technical polling skiff fully outfitted with a front casting platform, a live

well, trolling motor, power pole, cooler and all the necessities to make your day on the water a success.

If you want to schedule a day on the Waterman, please be certain to specify upon booking, as we have multiple boats and we want to ensure that we have the proper gear to meet your goals. Also, please keep in mind that many fish species (Such as Tarpon, Redfish and Permit) are seasonal, and we can help you plan your trip accordingly.
No matter if you want to hunt for tailing Reds or sight fish in the clear flats, oyster beds and grass beds, we can help you get that opportunity to hook, and land a fish you’ll remember for a long time to come.

We hope to see you soon!
