Fishing in the Lower Florida Keys

Lower Florida Keys

Bespoke Trips Designed By You


For twelve years Zach Peyton has been an integral part of guiding operations at South Fork Lodge, and today he stands as one of the senior members of staff at Natural Retreats Outfitters. There are few guests who haven’t fished with Zach over the years and even fewer who don’t at least know him by reputation. Both his passion for the sport and his devotion to the profession have led him to achieve the highest standard in the industry. His intensity and focus are legendary, and it’s these qualities that have helped him to become a two-time “Top Idaho Guide” in Jackson Hole’s prestigious One Fly Competition. He has become one of the most respected guides in the region, and his clients have learned to book early because of his busy schedule.

This year, Natural Retreats is proud to announce their partnership with Zach as he launches his guiding operation in The Lower Florida Keys. After several years of preparation, Zach will begin his career in Florida as a fully endorsed Natural Retreats destination fishing guide. This is a very exciting time, and we are eager to support him in this new branch of the business. While Zach will focus on guiding fly fishermen in search of tarpon, bonefish, and permit, he will also be able to accommodate those interested in using light tackle. The waters of the Keys are teeming with fish, and in addition to the big three, anglers can expect to encounter sharks, barracuda, grouper, and snapper. If you have never been on a Florida flats-fishing trip, you will be amazed by the fishery – it is like no other.

Natural Retreats aims to bring South Fork professionalism to the Keys. Our loyal guests understand the pride we take in offering some of the finest guiding services in the Rocky Mountains and have come to expect unparalleled angling experiences. Zach is committed to providing the same level of world-class service in this new endeavor, and he can’t wait to share the adrenaline rush of flats fishing with his Natural Retreats family.
