Is there anything better in the fishing world than hooking one on the fly? Use all your skills and strength to encourage the fish to take the fly, before you reel him in with all your might. Based out of Satellite Beach, Central Florida Fly Fishing is already on the Indian River. Expect to find some exceptional inshore fishing, with the shallow water providing excellent visibility and even better fish for you to battle it out with.

Aboard a 16’ Dolphin skiff, you’ll gently drift along the skinny waters, careful not to disturb the spooky fish around you. Powered by a 50 HP Mercury engine, you won’t waste a second looking for the sweet spots. Two anglers are welcome aboard and they’re invited to learn all about fly fishing from Captain Josh Hendry or show off their skills. During downtime, make use of the cooler on board to stash your snacks and drinks.

Tailing Redfish in the backwater, Black Drum, Trout, Bass, and monstrous Snook and Trout are all sure to give you the fight of your lives. The “Silver King,” is every angler’s dream catch, and you’ll join an elite club if you land one on the fly. All fly fishing equipment is provided for guests, including, most importantly, the flies. Even children are welcome to learn this art, but if they get frustrated there’s always something else to do on board.

Capt. Josh makes every trip unique and he can’t wait to put a smile on your face. A passionate angler since childhood, he always wanted to become a captain, and will do everything to uphold his reputation and passion. If you want to be picked up in the area, Capt. Josh is happy to come to anywhere between New Smyrna and Fort Pierce – just get in touch. Get on the river for a fantastic day out with Central Florida Fly Fishing!

Always the inquisitive type, Captain Josh developed a passion for fishing from childhood. He used to e-mail captains when he was 13 years old with tons of questions about what it takes to be a successful guide! He finally managed to land his dream job in 2014 and hasn't looked back since. The best part of the job, he says, is meeting new people and bonding with them, even going as far as to build meaningful relationships and friendships through fishing.
