My wife and I will be making a trip to Crystal River, Florida in a couple of weeks to visit relatives. It is on Florida's west coat, 75 miles north of Tampa. I have never been there, but I understand there is some good fly fishing opportunties with extensive flats nearby. Has anyone fished in that area of Florida? If so, I would appreciate any info about fly fishing in area that you could provide. Thanks

Steve

Homasassa is famous for it's big Tarpon. I think it's a little early, but look for Dan Malzone's add in the guides section of one of the fly fishing mags. Call him to find out for sure. If you can get a day with him, he is very good.
Crystal River up in the fresh used to have a good rep for Largemouth.
