June 2021-Join me at Turneffe Flats Lodge in Belize for a week of some of the finest flats fishing on Earth. Turneffe a vast atoll 30 miles off the coast of mainland Belize and home to a wide array of gamefish. The big three, bonefish, permit and tarpon are available in good numbers, with some of the best permit fishing you'll find. In June, large, migratory tarpon are found throughout the atoll and eager to eat flies. Additionally, snook, triggerfish and barracuda are all availble too. The amount of lonely water and variety of fishing opportunities is unparalleled in the Caribbean. The lodge is among the finest as well. Turneffe Flats is a clean and comfortable, modern facility where all you need to think about is what you want to fish for. All rooms have private bathrooms and A/C. Delicious, fresh cooked meals are served for breakfast and dinner while lunch is taken on the boat while fishing. If want to relax at the end of the day, it' a simple as drinking a cocktail while lounging in the infinity pool overlooking the ocean. And if you haven't had enough fishing, you can chase bonefish, permit and triggerfish on the home flat, in front of the lodge.
Our trip is June 12th-19th, 2021. With consistent wether patterns and generally light winds, June is a reliable time to fish Belize. Additionally, the migratory tarpon offer something special you won't see all year. And, while the Caribbean is hot in late spring, you won't experience the wilting temperatures of July and August.
The rate is: $4,690/pp based on double occupancy. This includes 7 nights lodging and all meals, 6 days of guided fishing (by one of the most experienced guide staffs on the planet) and transfers from Belize City to the lodge. Package does not include: Belize, taxes, alcohol, gear, transportation your home to Belize City or gratuities.
Turneffe Flats is an excellent place for the non-fishing spouse or friend. Turneffe is one of the top diving destinations in the world, with places like the Blue Hole and Lighthouse Reef very close by. The lodge offers a diving package or diving/fishing combo. They also offer an Atoll Adventure package consisting of guided activities like snorkeling and kayaking, or just a rest and relaxation week, where you can just lay in a hammock overlooking the ocean and read a book.
Please contact me with any questions or for more information. This trip is going to be awesome. You should be on it.
A few select destinations we book:
Bristol Bay is the centerpiece of fishing Alaska. With the most prolific salmon runs in the world and some of the biggest trout on Earth thi is fly fishing nirvana. Mission Lodge is located in the village of Aleknagik and outfitted with three float planes to access all the best, remote rivers and lakes in the region. Variety is Mission's strength, fishing for all five Pacific salmon species, dolly varden and arctic char, big rainbows and grayling. From their base at at the fringe of the largest state park in the nation, Mission covers more terrain than any other lodge in the region. You can share the world famous waters of Katmai National Park with brown bears one day and fish the Goodnews River on the edge of the Bering Sea the next. Accomodations are top notch with single rooms, a hot tub and sauna and massage therapist on staff. Whether grilling salmon over an open fire on the river bank or gourmet plates at the lodge, you will not go hungry here either. Check out the video below for a taste of the action.
The silver king lives in Costa Rica, along with its friends, permit, triggerfish, bonefish and jacks. This is a premier giant tarpon destination for anglers that like big fish in a wild environment. Tarponville sits literally in the jungle, at the end of the road, near the Panama border. The open-air lodge is comfortable and small with excellent food. Howler monkeys will be your alarm and toucans buzz the canopy. Check out this short film about the lodge.
The California Delta is one of the largest and most diverse fisheries in the country. Striped bass upwards of 40lbs swim the vast network of lakes, canals and rivers that make up the Delta. While essentially freshwater, the fishery is uniquely tidal and changes daily. Largemouth bass over 10lbs live here too, along with smallmouth. The Bay Area and Sacramento are short drives away and we have several, excellent captains that specialize in throwing flies for these beasts.
If you're stuck in San Francisco proper we also have a captain that guides SF Bay, where you can catch stripers within sight of the Golden Gate Bridge.
