Spring Break in the Capital of Salt Water Fishing
Join LFFE and local captains for 5 nights and 4 days of fishing in the world-famous Florida Keys. A small group of 4-6 anglers will spend 2 days fishing offshore for Mahi, Tuna, Snapper, and whatever else you find, one-day snorkeling and spearfishing for invasive lionfish, and one fishing from flats boats fly fishing for tarpon, snook, and redfish, and trout. Evenings will be spent grilling up some dinner, tying flies, refining your saltwater fly cast, or fishing from the dock.

Greetings LFFE, My name is Capt. John Norville and I have guided the Upper Florida Keys for nine years. Islamorada and Key Largo are considered to be the sport fishing capital of the world, and I look forward to being a part of the LFFE community by sharing this wonderful place I call home. I specialize in backcountry fly fishing in the Everglades for Tarpon, Bonefish, Snook, Redfish, Speckled Sea Trout, and numerous other species. As a Florida native, I have spent my entire life fishing and diving in these waters. I’m incredibly passionate about this area and the conservation efforts to preserve this special place. When I’m not fishing, I spend a lot of time working with organizations like “Captains for Clean Water” to protect the natural resources that provide me a career doing what I love. I am excited to introduce this area to the youth of LFFE because I firmly believe that these kids are the future of conservation efforts. I will be with the group each day, and we will be working closely with Capt. Casey Scott of “Sea Monkey Fishing” and Capt. Dan of “Underwater Cowboy” for this LFFE adventure. We will spend a few days diving and fishing with these gentlemen offshore and at the reef. I will coordinate with other backcountry guides to set up all the Everglades flats and fly fishing. Please let me know what questions I can answer for you. Best, Capt. John Norville (904)327-4414 [email protected]
