Wading the Keys
Posted October 14 2007 - 5:58 AM
I seem to rembember a book or booklet that described the wading sports along the length of the Keys by using mile marker designations to zero in on excellent wade fly fishing sites.
Or maybe it was in a magazine article?

don't spend your $ on a book. If you go and do a search on the Fla sec. ( or most any section for that matter) you'll get a wealth of info from SOL folks that go down all the time.
I went last year and got lots of good info on places, gear, flies, etc. Everyone was really helpfull.
A couple of good spots: Long Key, and Boni Honda. Shrimp patterns ( make sure you tie in a weed guard) 9wt, with floating line. You'll be fishing skinny water.
The book will make good reading on the flight down though.
Draw your own conclusions.

I have a book I bought when I was headed to the keys for the first time a few years ago. It covers tackle, tips and had maps of all the keys with suggested fishing locations. I ended up only fishing a little bit while I was there, but the book was helpful. If you PM me your address i would be happy to send it to you.

I'm thinking about taking a break between Carribean deliveries and camping down around there somewhere and wade fishing hard.
