Living the BlackFly life

BlackFly is a contemporary lifestyle brand created by noted artist/entrepreneur Vaughn Cochran that represents fly fishing, art and adventure travel all rolled into one. BlackFly comes to The Black Dolphin Inn as a fishing and marketing partner promoting the essence of the good life that embraces all of the attributes of BlackFly. The Black Dolphin Inn joins the family of other BlackFly properties, the BlackFly Outfitter Fly Shop in Jacksonville Florida, BlackFly Lodge in southern Abaco in the Bahamas and BlackFly The Restaurant in St. Augustine, Florida.

The beautiful seaside town of New Smyrna and the new Black Dolphin Inn offers BlackFly clients another spectacular opportunity to experience quality fishing, expert guides, service, accommodations and many other amenities that will impress any angler on the move. The Black Dolphin Inn is also located just minutes away from our airlift partner Airgate Aviation which services BlackFly Lodge and other destination fishing properties in Abaco, Bahamas. No matter where you're arriving from, Black Dolphin and Airgate will see that you get to your favorite bonefishing destination in the most convenient way possible.

If you're traveling through North Florida and spending the night at the Black Dolphin Inn on the way to the Bahamas, or New Smyrna is your final destination and you intend to fish the famous Mosquito Lagoon, you never know who you might meet along the way. Many of our Florida fishing celebrities are using the Black Dolphin Inn to stage their fishing groups the night before leaving for the Bahamas. It's a great place to meet and why not start your fishing adventure a day earlier? Fish a half day in the Lagoon or just explore the local beaches before you leave in the morning.

BlackFly Outfitter is a full service fly shop so simply let us know what you need in terms of tackle or gear and we'll have it at the Black Dolphin when you arrive or we'll ship it directly to your home or office.
