Welcome to Key West Fly Fishing, Fly Fishing Key West, Flats Fishing Key West, Key West Flats Fishing, and Fly Fishing Paradise! Flats Fishing Key West, Flats Fishing Florida Keys, and Flats Fishing the Marquesas Keys for Tarpon, Permit, Bonefish.

Hurricane season has been kind to us this year. There have been no real threats and only a few that even came close to us so far. October and November are great months for fall Bonefishing! The Permit are also out and about on the flats. To complete your grand slam, there are also resident Tarpon available.
Here is an October caught Permit.

Every so often there is a new product introduced to me to enhance my appreciation of the angling that takes place here in the fabulous Florida Keys. An artist by the name of Jerry Kirby showed me his Western Metal Art and I now have a piece proudly hanging on the door to my fly tying office!

The photo of this Tarpon metal art above captures only partially the stunning reality of this piece. It is truly a magnificent work of art that I am proud to own! Do yourself a favor and check out more of the Torchcraft western metal art at the Torchcraft web site Torchcraft Western Metal Art

Summer has been really good for early morning Tarpon, fair for Bonefish and Permit and excellent for catching up with family and friends! As we head toward October and the fall season, we are anxious to tackle more Bonefish and Permit along with the resident Tarpon here in the Keys waters.

Next year's Tarpon season is filling up fast, so be sure to email or call Capt. Dexter ASAP to get your spot.

Here is a nice summer tailing Bonefish on the Key West flats.

Tarpon Season, 2010 will go down as one of the best for the worm hatch, IF YOU WERE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME! Early season was good, middle season was better, late season was also good, if you could get them to eat!

This is Grand Slam season here in the Keys, so if we can coax you away from the Tarpon bite, then the Permit and Bonefish are also available. Here is a 24 pound Permit and a 6 pound Bonefish taken by Atlanta Braves star Tim Hudson. Tim and his wife Kim celebrated their 10th anniversary here in the Keys. Good luck to them, they are a great couple!

Grand Slam fishing is available during this Spring and Summer and early Fall seasons, so if you are still after that elusive first Permit or Tarpon or Bonefish, now is the time! Call me and let's set up your trip! Toll Free: 877-228-8497, or 305-745-3304.

Key West Fly Fishing Capt. Dexter Simmons a "Top Fly Fishing Flats Guide" for Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit on the Key West and Florida Keys flats as rated by his clients.

A true story of Key West flats fishing by Capt. Dexter Simmons as published in Fly Fish America magazine:

"...The first burst of power from the bonefish took Jim by surprise and nearly coiled the extra fly line around his neck. He quickly recovered however, and scrambled to clear the extra fly line to the reel. What seemed like an eternity took only seconds, as the fish ran at least two hundred yards across the flat, maybe two-fifty, before slowing down..."

Another true story of Key West flats fishing by Capt. Dexter Simmons as published in Fly Fish America magazine:

"...As we approach the Southeast flats of Marquesa, I am reminded of last night's strategy session at Turtle Kraals. I'll call out the clock position and distance in feet to the fish. When the Permit is within your range, cast the fly so it lands a foot or two in front of him or upcurrent of him. Reacting quickly with your cast is essential, as it takes only a few seconds to spook the fish or to lose your shot. So, try to limit yourself to one false cast at the most..."
