100% Customer Satisfaction
has been our commitment since 1856. It’s who we are. If you aren’t happy with a product or service, we want to know about it. And we’ll make it right. That’s the Orvis Way.
If you choose to bring your own gear we mostly use rods in the 8-12 wt. with a 10-foot tapered leader. I can tie you a leader if need be and provide flies.
What to Bring:
Flats skiffs are small try to keep your gear to a minimum. When booking your trip we can go into detail.
In early fall, before the cold fronts, start anything is possible. During the winter, again it's all about weather/water temperature but reds, snook, and small tarpon are the best game. In early spring, it's about permit. As the water warms, the tarpon begin to move in. We have resident tarpon but spring is when the big numbers begin to show.
Depending on the time of year and current weather conditions, I fish for tarpon, permit, bonefish, snook, redfish and a host of others. So even if the weather is not what we could wish, we can still have fun.
I fish the middle and lower Keys, depending on the time of year and your location.
Our weather is about as good as it gets in the U.S. In winter, if we have a strong cold front, the air temp can get as low as mid 50s but most of the time it's in the low 70s. In spring, it begins to warm into the 80s but almost never goes over 90. However, it can be pretty humid, so be prepared.
Rates start from: $500 for half day to $700 for a full day.
You can find all pricing information at: silversprayguideservice.com.
What is Provided:
I provide all the gear and tackle that is necessary, as well as licenses and drinking water. All you need is clothing that provides sun protection, sunscreen, and polarized sunglasses. Amber is the best color for our water.
All this fishing is catch-and-release, so we can continue to enjoy this fabulous fishery into the future.
