Come fish the Boston Harbor Islands with Nantasket Fly Box. We leave from Steamboat Wharf Marina on the Weir River at Nantasket Beach, Hull on Dragonfly a  20' 1987 Ellis Open Fisherman. Dragonfly was repowered in 2019 with a Suzuki four stroke outboard and comfortably fly fishes two sports plus the captain. Nantasket Fly Box fishes 1/2 day charters and is catch-release fly fishing only. NFB supplies fly fishing rods and flies, but you are welcome to bring your own. NFB uses 9wt & 10wt equipment for most of the season. During blitzes, we are known for breaking out the 8wt & 9wt fiberglass fly rods.  Hats, sunglasses, weather gear, & sunscreen are recommended. 

Captain Christopher Hidell specializes on in-shore, shallow water Striper fly fishing. Dragonfly draws less than 30" of water, so estuary and flats fishing can be part of the fun. 

Saltwater Flies

We tie & sell saltwater flies. We inventory not just the flies we tie, but we carry a large selection of outsourced flies that are specific to the Boston Harbor Striper bite. Local delivery, pick-up, and mail order are all available.
