Fly Fish Marco Island

Fly Fish Marco Island

Fly Fish Marco is an inshore and nearshore year-round professional fly fishing and light tackle guide service. Our concentration includes the Big Marco River and its connecting bays and abundant islands, and bridges. We also venture into the 10,000-island fishery and nearshore into the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

We target a variety of backwater and nearshore gamefish.   In addition, we will also pursue some offshore species that frequent nearshore waters during specific times of the year; such as King Mackerel and Cobia.  Our year -round concentration is in pursuit of Tarpon, Snook and Red Fish.  During significant times of the year several migratory species visit or emerald waters off the coast of Marco Island and Naples.  Bonito and False Albacore make their run through our waters in the fall of the season.   Often, the waters off Marco Island and Naples, the Albie, Blue Fish and Bonito onslaught is in full display. They often frequent these waters well into the months of November and December creating turbulent displays of aggression on the teeming baitfish filled coastlines.   If you ever get an opportunity to hook a False Albie or Bonito on the end of a fly rod or light tackle, you may find yourself addicted to these speedy gamefish.  Also, during the late spring and through the summer months, we have an opportunity to pursue the elusive but extremely rewarding Pompano off the sandy beaches and passes of Marco Island

Find Year-Round Tarpon, Snook, & Redfish.

Up and down the Marco Island coastlines, and its connecting bays and islands you will find year-round Tarpon, Snook, and Redfish. These species are always present and will be the focus of our angling attention.  During specific times of the year we will have the opportunity to throw at blitzing False Albacore, bonito, and blues.  Hooking up on a False Albacore or bonito, is like nothing else. Forty miles per hour on the end of a fly line is not an exaggeration. This is what these speedsters do.

About Your Captain

Captain Marc Creach is an Ohio Native who has fished most of his entire life.  His focus on fly fishing took shape in 1999.  While spin fishing for smallmouth bass with his friend Lee Janik (Owner of Clutch Fly Rods), Lee challenged Captain Marc that he would convert him into a fly fisherman.

In short, Captain Marc was converted.  Since then Marc has fished many well-known great lake tributaries between Michigan and western New York.  In 2003, Captain Marc’s focus turned to saltwater fly-fishing. He has fished many “bucket list” locations across the United States and some abroad. Some of his favorites include the famous Montauk Fall Run for blitzing strippers and False Albacore and the Louisiana Marsh for monster redfish. Marc enjoys fly fishing Islamorada in the Florida Keys, Isla Blanca Mexico flats for permit and its jungles for Mangrove Hidden Tarpon.

Marc has fished the famous South Bay off of Pelee Island Canada for record setting smallmouth bass. Another, favorite is the Outer banks for False Albacore, and the emerald coast of Panama City to Destin Florida areas for cobia, tarpon and redfish. The Mecca of all his trips was fishing for Sailfish in Guatemala. You may have even seen Captain Marc as a guest on the ESPN show Guide House.  A ESPN series about fishing guides and their daily grind in Montauk NY during the famous fall run.  However, Captain Marc has found his niche in the Marco Island Florida area.  He has fished these waters for the past five years and also calls this paradise home.
