2022 is the year I catch my first tarpon on fly. I've caught dozens on spinning/conventional tackle but looking for one on fly. I'm looking for recommendations on a guide and time of year to get this done. Not in the lower Keys and preferably off the beaten path. IM's are good. Thanks for your recommendations!

Bob LeMay in Flamingo. He is an old-school guide who know the Everglades back to front. You may not catch one in clear water, but he will get you attached to one of those big ones that enter White Water bay before the crush in the Keys.

There’s a bunch of good ones
Depends mostly where you want to fish out of
Everglades is probably the most remote but still accessible fishery
Brian Esposito is top notch and diverse, and knows the Glades as well as anyone

You might also consider Jeff Lugutki, Anglers Addiction Guide Service. 239.293.1664. Regardless, book early as the best guides get busy real quick during tarpon season. Good luck!

Just use your own boat. If you know where you caught them with spin you can do it with fly

"off the beaten path," would be the area between Flamingo and Pavillion Key.

Guides, you've been given some good names.
