Soc Et Tu Um

The drag-screaming run of a bonefish racing across a shallow grass flat; the fantastic aerial display of a tarpon leaping from the water to try and shake your hook free; the satisfaction of finally landing your first elusive permit on fly. These are just a few of the thrills you’ll experience while shallow water fishing in the Florida Keys.

Hello, I’m Captain Billy Whitney, and for nearly 20 years I’ve specialized in fly and light tackle fishing in the calm, clear waters of the Florida Bay and Atlantic Ocean. Whether you’re a begining angler or an expert with the fly rod, join me for a memorable day on the flats or in the backcountry as we hunt for tarpon, bonefish, permit, snook, redfish and more!
