Capt. Michael Passalacqua

Capt. Michael Passalacqua fishes the shop’s local waters from Boca to the Palm Beaches.

When it comes to nighttime fishing, there is nothing like the cover of darkness and large fish to get your adrenalin going.

The bites and strikes in docklight fly fishing can be exhilarating moments. The visual aspect is by far the best part. Seeing the fish charge a fly from one side of the light to the other is unlike anything else. Overall, docklight fly fishing combines accessibility, skill, and an element of adventure, making it a truly enjoyable and fun experience for anglers. Whether you’re a seasoned fly fisher or a beginner looking for a new way to enjoy fishing, docklight fly fishing offers a unique and engaging way to connect with nature and have your shots at incredible fish.
