Where We Fish
Island Fly operates primarily in and around both the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge located just north of Brigantine Island.
These protected areas comprise over 150,000 acres (235 sq mi) of tidal wetlands, sandy flats, barrier islands, shallow bays, and coastal ocean creating an incredibly unique fishery.
The Mullica River-Great Bay Ecosystem joins the Atlantic Ocean right at our backdoor allowing easy access to the fishery for our guests.
