The Story

Join Orvis-endorsed guide Capt. Drew Rodriguez for unforgettable fly fishing in Florida. Why book with Capt. Drew? “You should book with me because of my knowledge and love for the sport. I’ve lived in Miami, Florida, my entire life, therefore I know what, when, and where to fish. Also, I run more freshwater fly-fishing trips than anyone in my field of work. I'm the first-ever, strictly freshwater Orvis-Endorsed fishing guide in South Florida. I have a special relationship with my clients and love my job.”

  • Cuban coffee in the mornings
  • Orvis rods, reels, and plenty of flies
  • Lunch and drinks

We fly fish in both the city canals and the Everglades. The city canals consist of crystal-clear waters. This is where the biggest peacock bass in South Florida live. You can associate this area with TV shows you may have seen featuring people catching peacock bass in what appear to be their backyards. I call this area the Urban Amazon. The Florida Everglades is home to the most largemouth bass in the country. We catch them a lot on topwater poppers. Lately, the peacock bass has taken over certain areas. When the water is low, we're catching 100-plus fish. The Everglades is a nice, peaceful trip and is my favorite place in the world.

$750 for full day trips. This price is for one or 2 people.

Where should I stay when booking a trip?

This information depends on what time of year you are coming and where we are fishing.

What do you provide?

I provide lunch and drinks. I have plenty of tackle. You can bring your own gear if you like, but if you come empty handed, that'd be okay, too.
