"An extremely valuable resource. No matter what the reader's favorite style of fishing may be, the diverse 'how-to' techniques and invaluable 'where-to' aspects of the book will significantly improve the chances of successful fishing outings when visiting the Key West area."—Doug Kelly, Florida Outdoor Writers Association
 
Key West and its surrounding water rank as one of the world's most popular fishing destinations. Hundreds of thousands of visitors descend upon those islands each year to fish, and some of the best and most innovative fly, light tackle, and offshore charter captains reside there.
 
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced professional, this comprehensive and practical saltwater fishing guide provides all the information necessary to successfully fish the waters surrounding the Lower Keys, including the near-shore Atlantic, the reef and the blue water, the nearby Gulf of Mexico, and the flats and channels surrounding the backcountry keys. An experienced angler himself, David Conway presents the techniques and tackle successfully used to pursue the primary and most popular species of food and game fish in all these waters, as well as some of the lesser-known and migratory species.
 
A broad range of topics of interest for visitors to the keys are covered in this guide, including how to fish the bridges, how and where to tow your boat into the keys, and how to charter a captain. Nothing else matches the depth and breadth of information in Fishing Key West and the Lower Keys.

This is a must-have reference guide for anyone planning to fish the Lower Florida Keys. Whether the reader is a local resident who would like to have more of an "edge" over the fish, or an out-of-towner who appreciates actually reeling in more than untouched bait, this book tells us how, where and when to have a successful day of fishing. David Conway takes us on an illustrated and comprehensive tour of the best fishing holes throughout the Keys and beyond, whether on a boat, along the shoreline, or even standing on a bridge. He tells us what we need to know about the many varieties of fish we can stalk, where we will likely find them and how to fish them. Lures, jigs, flies, live bait...all are covered in detail, including where and how to catch your own live bait. His narrative is filled with his own experiences as well as those of many of the areas other known fishermen. After reading Fishing Key West and the Lower Keys, I must admit that I feel confident that I will land the Big One on my next trip to the Florida Keys.
