FLY FISHING CHARTERS
Tampa Fly Fishing Charters on the waters of Tampa Bay is one of the most relaxing ways to fish once you’ve mastered the technique. Tampa Bay is the perfect place to cast your fly because of its large amount of relatively shallow water. Fly fishing is a combination of using the perfect handmade lure to attract fish that may be in your area, using a natural-looking delivery of the bait, and consistent casting technique. An experienced professional fishing charter captain can help you master all of these factors. Capt. Rafael Rios of the Spanish Sardine Fishing Charter is that captain that’ll put you on the fish.

Fly Fishing Guide
Captain Rafael Rios has put fly fishermen on Redfish, Trout, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, Flounder and Tarpon. Last winter the Black Drum moved into the Pinellas Point flats in Tampa Bay and Captain Rios was in the action putting experienced fly fisherman on large hard fighting fish.
Fly fishing on the flats of Tampa Bay is fun no matter what size fish you catch. On cooler days, Sheepshead can be caught on a fly just minutes after launch on the Spanish Sardine Fishing Charter. Fly fishing is not only limited to shallow water fish. The Spanish Sardine Offshore Fishing Charters can target species like Bonita, Permit, and Mahi Mahi.
All though fly fishing can be intimidating at first, Captain Rios can teach any angler who is interested in casting a fly. Plus, with his knowledge of fly fishing Tampa Bay waters, you’ll have a better chance of being successful. All you need is patience and a great Captain!
