Belize, Belize Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Whether heading for El Pescador or any other bonefish/permit/tarpon destination, practice casting for a week or 10 days prior to your trip. Work out any winter-induced kinks and be ready when your guide says, "50-feet mon, 11 o'clock."

We had a great group of folks with lots of returning guests. It is always good to see familiar faces in beautiful places. The bonefish, due to the weather, were also familiar faces. Evan and his dad landed almost fifty bonefish between the two of them and Art and Kass did as well. Permit (Palometa): Andrew, David, Martin and George all landed Permit this week. Miles landed his Permit and another and another and then a Tarpon and a Bonefish to finish his grand slam. The illusive Permit... Some of us spend a lifetime and some only a weekend to achieve this goal. Tarpon (Sabalo): Tarpon have been around in large numbers and Rich managed to land two and jump one that was well over one hundred pounds. Wade only fished for a single day but landed three Tarpon. David and Eric each landed fish that were over fifty pounds. Nice week for Tarpon fisherman. Other Species: Grouper, Trigger, Cobia, Gray Snapper, Mutton Snapper Grand Slams: Congratulations to Miles McMurray on his Grand Slam Flies that worked: Bonefish - Christmas Island Specials in orange, pearl and pink sizes 6 & 8 Permit - Grand Slam Crab, Squimp in size 6&8, Mantis shrimp Tarpon - White, red and black, all black and black and purple toads and bunnies continue to work well. The week in review: The weather has been a lot better this week and the fish responded to the positive change. It's a busy time for the lodge with lots of happy anglers. Come join us in beautiful Belize! Ken
