Flyfishing the Planet

Trout and steelhead are our bread and butter, but we like to throw flies at all sorts of species from permit to chinook and everywhere in between. We organize and host trips in Alaska, the Caribbean and Central America, New Zealand and plenty more. The best destinations, the best fishing and the best lodges and camps. Contact us if you're searching for something specific or just need suggestions.



Our upcoming hosted trips:






11/7-14, 2023-Christmas Island Lodge-We are headed to Chsirtmas Island (CXI) this fall for a flats fishing bonanza. CXI is home to massive schools of bonefish, multiple speceis of triggerfish, golden, bluefin and the king of them all, the giant trevally. Offshore opportunities include shots at tuna, sailfish, milkfish, dorado, snapper, grouper, trevally and more. CXI is one of the most affordable and wild saltwater destinations on the planet. It's easily the most affordable and accessible GT fishery on Earth too.


Christmas Island Lodge is located away from the towns in a quiet setting on the north end of the island. With immediate access to the beach and nearby private access to the massive inner lagoon, this is the perfect location for the fly angler to experience the best of CXI. Single occupancy accommodations and private bathrooms are standard and the lodge only takes 8 anglers a week. This gives the group and lodge maximum flexibility to put their anglers in the right place at the right time. In one week you can wade the inner lagoon flats for bones and triggers, patrol the outer beaches for GT's and fish offshore for billfish. The lodge has also taken pains to provide better food than is traditionally offered on CXI. The remote nature of the island makes it difficult to get fresh food on a consistent basis, but Chrsitmas Island Lodge has food flown in weekly from Hawaii to make sure their anglers and staff are well fed and happy. Beer and wine is also included in the package price. Relaxing on a tropical beach at sunset with a beer in hand, after a long day of stalking the flats, is about a good as life gets.


Cost: $3200 includes 7 nights/6 days guided fishing, single occupancy lodging, three meals a day, beer/wine, transportation from/to CXI airport.


Does not include: fishing gear, liquor, gratuities or airfare. ***There is only one flight a week to CXI and it usually runs $1300-1500 round trip.

After an incredible trip to Jardines de la Reina in Cuba, we have secured another week during the migratory tarpon season next year! This next trip is 6/15-22, 2024-Avalon FII boat in Jardines de la Reina (Gardens of the Queen), Cuba.


Its difficult to explain how incredible and special the JDR is. Among the least developed and most pristine marine ecosystems left on the planet, the JDR hosts abudant numbers of fish and wildlife. The 800 mile long archipeligo is a national park and marine sanctuary. There is no commercial fishing, no DIY fishing, no towns, no nothing. Just fish, birds and magroves. The three main flats species--bonefish, permit and tarpon--are present in large numbers. Barracuda, snappers, jacks, grouper and more are also readily available. The fishing variety and health of the reef and flats ecosystem is unparalleled. While juvenile tarpon are available all year, the migratory tarpon (up to 100 lbs) show up in late March and stick around well into July. The week we have reserved for nest year is a prime tarpon week. This is sight fishing with floating lines over sand and turtle grass flats, not blind casting heavy sink tips into a brown river. This fishing is similar to tarpon fishing in the Florida Keys, but with one huge difference: there's no competition in the JDR. That's right, the 6 skiffs our group will fish from are the only boats allowed to fish an area over 250 square miles.


The lodging, food and hospitality are second to none on the Avalon FII mothership. This boat was custom built for anglers and divers and leaves nothing to be desired. It hosts 10 air conditioned cabins (each with their own bathroom), a full bar, hot tub, waterslide, indoor and outdoor lounge spaces, full kitchen (where they cook absolutely fantastic meals from scratch) and even USB charging outlets. This boat is as comfortable as it gets for while staying in such a remote location.


Logistics for this trip are as follows: Fly into Camaguey, Cuba on 6/14, explore the city and stay the night. Board a private charter bus on 6/15 for a two hour bus ride to the port of Jucaro where we board the Avalon FII mothership for a four hour run to the JDR. After 5.5 days of fishing we steam back to Jucaro where we spend the night on the mothership and then bus back to Camaguey to catch flights back to the US. Travel to Cuba is perfectly legal and this trip meets all US and Cuban government travel requirements.


Cost: $8885 includes 7 nights/5.5 days guided fishing, single or double occupancy lodging, three meals a day, all alcohol, transportation from/to Camaguey.

Does not include: fishing gear, overnight in Camaguey, gratuities or airfare.


NOTE: It is highly unlikely you will see this price point again for a JDR trip during migratory tarpon season. Going forward this trip will run north of $11,000/week. If you want to experience big tarpon in Cuba, jump on this trip now!






2023/2024/2025-We always have travel plans in the works!


Right now we are working on giant largemouth bass in Mexico. Lakes El Salto and Picachos easily host some of the biggest and best largemouth fishing in the world. Not to mention the food, hospitality and affordable pricing. This trip will be around the beginning of December, 2024. Travel is straightforward as you only need to fly to Mazatlan. You can be fishing the same afternoon. If you are interested in this trip contact us to get on the list and we will get you dates and details as soon as we have it locked in.


In the future:


Magdelena Bay in Mexico, giant peacock bass in Brazil and Colombia among other marinations are all on the menu. If any of these options sound interesting please contact Brett.


We don't only do hosted trips. We can send you to any number of incredible fishing destinations around the world, including Belize, The Mayan Riviera in Mexico, Baja Mexico, Christmas Island, Cuba, Southwest Alaska and more.
