Catch the Grand Slam
In addition to the exceptional flats fishing for bonefish, tarpon and permit, the lagoons can turn up lady fish or snook. Or you can go offshore to the reef into the deep water for tuna and wahoo. You can even troll the reef for king fish or barracuda or jig the bottom for snapper and grouper. The choice is yours.
Top Notch Fishing Guides
This was one of the first fishing lodges in Belize, and there are three generations of guides working full time. They know every detail of the flats surrounding Ambergris Caye and the areas beyond. Most of them were taught for years by their father or uncle before they were allowed to captain their own boat. You won’t find a more experienced group of full-time professional fishing guides and staff anywhere.
Communication with Your Guide is the Key to Success
We HIGHLY suggest that you communicate with your guide throughout the day. Do you want to bonefish all day? Is there a chance for permit or tarpon? Are you interested in different species? If you would like help or advice, please do not hesitate to ask. Maybe you change your mind during the day and want to see if a different opportunity is available, ask away!
If you’ve been tarpon fishing for three hours without a bite and you feel like you need a tug desperately, ask to go catch a bonefish! If you enjoy wading, just ask the guide. The point is that the guide will not know what you are feeling unless you tell him.
Fly Casting Lessons
Complimentary fly-casting lessons are available daily from 3-5 pm on the casting platform of the dock. You will be tired after 8-10 hours on the boat, but please try to spend a few minutes to work on something new. The guides are great teachers, but they tend to focus on finding you fish.
On the dock, we can work off some skills that need time to develop, like a double haul or getting rid of a tailing loop. If you would like help with knot tying or fly tying, please do not hesitate to ask.
If you’re looking for some unguided fishing options while you’re in Belize, we can help you out with that as well. Just let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll help you set it up.
The bonefish grounds are only minutes from the lodge. You can either fish from the boat or the wade-able flats that are all around the lodge. The bonefish run from two to five pounds, they’re plentiful, and eager to take a fly.
Permit are found on the bonefish flats, and on many of the tarpon flats as well. They hang out in large schools and range from four to 30 pounds. The average permit is between 8 and ten pounds.
The saltwater flats of Belize are world renowned for offering the opportunity to sight cast to tarpon 12 months a year. Belize’s shallow water contains the only classic tarpon flats outside South Florida. In late summer there’s the added bonus of a large migratory population of bigger fish.
This Belize fly fishing resort offers a variety of activities that are perfect for families or a couples retreat. They’ll love it, even if they don’t fish!

Nathan Hadfield –
I am going back again this year with my wife and hoping to get into some Tarpon! They begin to migrate late summer and can be great in September and October. These tarpon are much larger than the resident tarpon available all year.
Kevin Cummings –
Great trip! Have always wanted a shot at a saltwater grand slam. While I did not hook-up on a tarpon, I couldn’t get them to take my fly. Guess that’s why they call it fishing and not catching. Would love to go back some day.
