Central Florida Freshwater Fly Fishing Report

Hunter Towery has been actively learning some off the beaten path bodies of water, further away from the urban sprawl of Central Florida. Focusing his efforts in his home waters in Polk County he has came up with a unique method of chasing largemouth bass and other local warm water species with the fly rod. In what he likes to call “backcountry bassin”, he uses the stealth of a locally built western style drift boat to chase bass in some pretty gorgeous places. He likes to focus on smaller more scenic bodies of water that offer the angler a more intimate experience with nature and the fish.
