Travel Haiku - Floriday Keys Fishing (State of Florida)


Florida Keys
jumping on the pier
a man and fish

Florida Keys pier
jumping on the planks
anglers and their catch

Florida Keys fishing
on the piers
chain smoking fishers

Florida Keys piers
an angler teaches child patience
with a fishing line

Americans don't need to travel far to find some the world's best saltwater fly-fishing. The warm, turquoise waters off the Florida Keys are loaded with record-size bonefish, monster tarpon, and a plethora of permit, grouper, and snapper. Pier fishing makes for some of the best fishing in the Keys. Many of the original 18-plus miles of bridges in the Keys have been replaced and turned into fishing piers that can stretch, literally, for miles. Or, if you want to get out on the water, charter a boat or go on a guided fishing trip.
