The Everglades National Park and the Ten Thousand Islands are a traveling fisherman's ideal destination. It is one of the most pristine and productive fisheries in North America. Equally important, however, is the weather. How many times have you had your trip hurt by weather? For the light tackle and fly fishing angler, the area's vast expanse of protected waters means that weather days are virtually nonexistent. There are always sheltered places to fish. You will not spend your fishing days inside waiting for the weather clear. Never do you have to fish in the wind all day!!
