In my opinion, World Wide Sportsman is a shadow of what it used to be as a fly shop. It really is more of a Bass Pro Shops with an island flair these days. Far more clothing, gifts, etc. than there is fly fishing gear. World Class Angler, which used to belong to Jake Jordan, is on the gulfside in Marathon. Though not exclusively flyfishing, it does carry some gear and can provide good information. There used to be lot more, like Key West Angler, Chittums, Anglers Pro Shop, and Randy Towe's World Class Outfitters. Unfortunately, many fly shops down there either seem to close down or morph into something else.
