Isa Rodriguez (center) is from the village of Valley of Peace in central Belize. Isa began his training at El Pescador in 2008 and was our Associate Fishing Director from 2013 - 2018. Isa was promoted to Fishing Director in 2018.
Isa obtained his Casting Instructor Certification from the Federation of Fly Fishers in February of 2013. Isa joins three other El Pescador guides as the only Belizean certified casting instructors currently teaching in Belize.
Isa has a remarkable ability to teach both novice and experienced fly casters due to his easy going, no pressure sessions but at the same time drawing on the skills and techniques from any source that crosses his path. Isa is the quintessential student and loves to learn; he will be a lifelong student and teacher of fly casting.
His knowledge of the local culture, his ability to explain casting techniques and styles, and his knowledge of knots as well as our home waters make him an invaluable member of our El Pescador family.
