Fly Fishing in St. Augustine
With its rich cultural history and breathtaking natural beauties, there's not much that St. Augustine can't offer to its visitors, and great fishing charters are no exception. If you're looking to experience flats and backcountry fishing at its best, the fly fishing St. Augustine provides will give you exactly that, and even more.

What type of trip is right for me?
Inshore Fly Fishing
St. Augustine fishing charters that focus on inshore fly fishing can last anywhere from a half day to a full day trip. Redfish, Black Drum, Tarpon, and Spotted Seatrout are among the top targets. Trout and Flounder can be caught year-round, while Tarpon, Snook, Sheepshead, Bluefish, and Ladyfish are seasonal.
Nearshore Fly Fishing
Even though the fly fishing St. Augustine is famous for is usually synonymous with inshore and flats fishing, you can get some great action a bit farther from the coast. You can fly fish for Cobia, Jack Crevalle, Bonito, and others in the bountiful nearshore waters of the area.
“Flood Tide” Fly Fishing
Late spring to fall (especially during new and full moons) in St. Augustine is all about the "flood tides" or "tailing tides"! This phenomenon happens when spartina grounds that are usually dry get flooded. And this means one thing – a unique opportunity to spot Redfish, Sheepshead, and Black Drum more than a hundred feet away. Fly fishing for "tailing Redfish" is especially popular and crab patterns are proven to be very efficient.
How to Prepare
All licensed St. Augustine fly fishing charters come inclusive with fishing licenses. Just make sure to ask your captain if fly gear is provided – this can vary depending on the charter. Pack any food/drinks, sun protection, layered clothing, and of course, a camera!
The extensive flats, rich backcountry waters, and year-round fishery make St. Augustine a true fly fishing paradise. Come and experience the best it has to offer with the help of passionate local guides!
