October 16, 2019..."Fly Fishing Shell Key Preserve" with Scott Hennet

Join Club member Scott Hennet for his presentation on Fly fishing  in Shell Key Preserve. Shell Key Preserve is a 1,828-acre preserve located in the mouth of Tampa Bay, which includes a 195-acre barrier island known as Shell Key.  This is a perfect secluded getaway spot without having to travel far. The Preserve is an important sanctuary for nesting, wintering, and migrating birds, as well as a popular fishing and boating area. Access to Shell Key is limited to water vessels, including private boats or public shuttles such as the Shell Key Shuttle.

Remember this is an undeveloped barrier island and there are no facilities on it. And, while boaters can pull their boat right up to this island preserve, they should check local tide charts before navigating the shallow waters that lie to the east of Shell Key. This should be a good one!
