    On the shallow water flats of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico and Belize there is one fish that is more plentiful than most of the saltwater gamefish and more willing to eat artifical offerings from flyfishers. That fish is the legendary bonefish.

    This fish rivals any in the sea for strength on the initial run often stripping 100 yards of backing with a nuclear like power. They simply defy the laws of physics. A two pound fish will bend an eight weight graphite

    flyrod double and you will not be able to stop it with ten pound test tippet. These fish provide consistent action when everything else in a typical saltwater fishing scenario is inconsistent. Too windy to cast? No problem, find a mud and fish down wind.

    It's been decade since we've had the rule of kings and queens reign supreme over the country of Belize, but for some fisherman the king still resides in the water just off the shore of Belize.

Some of these atolls hold school of bone fish year around while some merely move from the deep drop offs to the shallows to feed with the moving tide, wind and weather.

    TARPON FISHING - TIPS AND TECHNIQUES


    Tarpon fishing is one of my passions. And the smaller tarpon from six to thirty pounds are, in my opinion, way more fun than the bigger ones.
