Florida Sportsman On Matlacha

Even though this was published three years ago, Florida Sportsman's article on Matlacha's outstanding fishery sums up a lot of the best point about the island. The one thing that doesn't get proper mention however is the great tarpon fishing in these same waters that's still going strong right now. The article's writer Norm Zeigler is a highly regarded fly fisherman and owner of a great little fly shop on Sanibel. He's also the author of an excellent book titled "Snook On A Fly," a very good how-to guide for this species.
