Fly Fishing in Belize
Belize is a paradise for fisherman. Some people may think of fly fishing as a sport for mountain streams. They don’t realize that they can enjoy superb fly-fishing in the warm waters of ponds, lakes, and salt water.
Belize has a remarkable combination of environmental factors which create the ideal habitat for a multitude of saltwater game fish. It is home to the Belize Barrier Reef, second in size only to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. An intricate chain of submerged islands and cays provide the ideal habitat for a shallow-water coral-ecosystem. This is why large barrier reefs are fairly uncommon and a home for exotic types of wildlife.
There are many resorts to choose from that offer fishing packages with equipment and guides to help you make the big catch. Whether you fly fish for Bonefish, Permit or go after the mighty Tarpon, there is something for every fisherman in Belize.
A typical day might begin with a search for Permit or Bonefish in the interior flats. Then, you may choose to eat lunch on or off the island. After lunch, head back to the flats, search out Tarpon in local creeks or even troll for Snapper and Barracuda. Then end the day at an outdoor bar for storytelling and planning what to do the next day. Fishing guides customize your fishing schedule to match your needs upon arrival.
