If drowning a shrimp or tossing lures doesn’t excite you nearly as much as the art of fly casting, Captain August Cook has the trip for you down in Homosassa, FL. There is nothing more beautiful in all of fishing than watching a perfect fly cast land a fly inches from an unsuspecting fish’s nose. Now throw in a perfect cast to a tailing Redfish or a Daisy Chaining Pod of Tarpon and you have an angling experience that will never be forgotten....Read More
Homosassa’s legendary maze of islands are home to some of the most sought-after game fish for fly fishermen. Redfish, Speckled Trout, Tarpon, Tripletail, Jack Crevalle, Mackerel, Bonita, and even Grouper are just a few of the species that are targeted while on a fly fishing trip with Shoalwater Adventures and because all of these species call the waters off the Nature Coast home year-round, the possibility of tangling with each of these species can occur on any given day.
Captain August welcomes you to bring your own gear if you'd like. But he can provide the whole setup for you as well! So no matter you skill level, all you need to bring with you are you're favorite snacks and drinks, and Captain August will show you what saltwater fly fishing is all about!
