|By dictionary definition, fly fishing is a distinct and ancient angling method, most
renowned as a method for catching trout and salmon, but employed today for a wide
variety of species including pike, bass, panfish, and carp, as well as marine species,
such as redfish, snook, tarpon, bonefish and striped bass. There are many reports of fly
fisherman taking quite unintended species such as chub, bream and rudd while fishing
for 'main target' species such as trout. There is a growing population of anglers whose
aim is to catch as many different species as possible with the fly.
Fly fishing in Key West has contributed to the modern development of the sport. In the
past, anglers on fly would be found exclusively on the flats. And today, that is still mostly
true. But the limits of the sport are being stretched, as some anglers toss flies to huge
tarpon and even marlin.
Equipment has followed suit. Fly reels and rods are now being manufactured en
masse for fish weighing over 100 pounds. And fly shops on the island offer huge
streamers the size of birds. These are switched in place of a trolled, hook less bait in
front of a billfish.
