Explore the crystal clear waters of Florida Keys with Golden Glare Fly Charters. Captain Dan will take you on a fishing trip through the flats and backcountry of the area, that has a world-famous reputation for great fly fishing opportunities. Whether you’re looking for a new challenge on a fly, or you’re holding a rod for the first time, you’re welcome to join Capt. Dan.

You’ll be fishing on a 17’ Maverick boat that accommodates up to 2 guests. As fly fishing doesn’t allow crowded boats, the space is reserved for a few people who can commit completely to this technique. The boat is powered by a 70 HP Yamaha engine and features GPS, 2 coolers, and a live bait tank.

Choose between fly fishing and spinning, whatever feels better for you. You’ll be able to target Redfish, Snook, Permit, Bonefish, and the Silver King – Tarpon. You can release or keep the catch within regulations. In case you’re a fan of fish fillets, the captain will clean the catch for you.

Your fishing license and equipment are fully covered. The price covers your fly fishing gear too, but feel free to bring your own if you want. Pack some snacks and drinks and you’re ready to go. You’ll need a sharp eyesight to notice silver fish in the flats, so don’t forget polarized sunglasses and a hat.

Golder Glare Fly Charters is here for an unforgettable day on the flats. You just need to say when.
