March in the Florida keys is certainly an interesting time for fly fishing. Rotating wind patterns has made the fishing inconsistent, usually, the wind that comes from the east is best for feeding fish.
A mild cold front has come in last week but tarpon has started to show up in the backcountry. Due to the high winds, we have been able to have permit 6 feet from the skiff without the spooky fish knowing, but with high winds and rotating winds, it can be very challenging to land. As April rolls around the fishing become a lot more consistent as does the weather. Make sure to check out the golden gate casting ponds if you are planning a trip to this tropical fly fishing destination.
