Wade Fly Fishing Mosquito Lagoon and North Indian River Lagoon (Florida) from Canaveral National Seashore and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge
Situated mid-way along the East Coast of Florida, Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River Lagoon system in general are renowned fishing destinations and are featured in books, articles, videos, and TV shows. Quality guiding services are widely available. And fly-fishing is gaining in popularity. Why another guide book?
Firstly, not much literature exists on foot access to the lagoons, and this is one gap that this book is filling. Secondly, hunting the fish of the lagoons while wading is a different experience than fishing from a boat. It must be learned and this book will do this. Finally, in keeping with the ways of each book of the series, this guide book focuses on very precise fishing spots. Contrary to most others this guide book shows the precise location of these fishing spots on large-scale, detailed maps.
Parking Lot 5 of the North District of Canaveral National Seashore should be the starting point of your exploration of the lagoons, on foot. The area accessible on foot from Parking Lot 5 is described in minute details. This book also covers all the wading areas of Mosquito Lagoon and North Indian River Lagoon accessible from Park and Refuge land. You will pursue mostly Red Drum, but also Spotted Seatrout, Black Drum, and other game fish, over miles of shallow flats. Precise directions will take you to areas of the lagoons that hold fish and to specific spots where those fish tend to gather. This guiding book also tells you what you need and how to catch those big fish with a fly rod.
If you are an experienced salt fly-fisher you will skip years of exploration time. If you are an experienced fly-fisher who is new to saltwater and flats fishing you will shorten your learning curve immensely. If you have been sitting on the sidelines of wade fly-fishing this book will hopefully be the spark that will ignite a passion.
Go ahead, let our lagoons work their magic.
