Belize Fishing TIPS

Here is a collection of tips and tricks for anglers fishing Belize for the first time.

Ten Tips to Enhance Your Fishing Trip

Here are ten things you can do to enhance your salt water flats guided fishing at El Pescador.

Saltwater Spin Fishing at El Pescador

El Pescador resort in Ambergris Caye, Belize is known worldwide as one of the finest saltwater flats fisheries anywhere. The incredible opportunities presented by this fishery apply as much to the spin fisher as the fly fisher.

The False Economy of Cheap Gear

Anglers new to saltwater fly fishing will learn faster and save money in the long run by investing in quality gear.

Selecting Saltwater Fly Lines

Saltwater fish are always on the move and you probably have just one cast to a given fish. Increase your odds by selecting a line that will quickly deliver the fly with a minimum of false casts.

Make Your Cast Count

Over many years of saltwater flats fishing, a few major lessons creep into one's consciousness. Perhaps the very most important, at least in this writer's experience, is simply this: MAKE THE FIRST CAST COUNT.

Realistic Expectations while Fishing

We have over 200 square miles of flats fishing and an abundant and diverse fishery. So what should your expectations be?

Fly Fishing from a Kayak

Rarely fished flats behind Ambergris Caye offer the kayaker incredible opportunities for large bones. Miles of water is accessible and our kayaks are complimentary for guests.

Keep Stripping

Do not give up on a cast, especially in cloudy water or under any circumstances where visibility is limited.

Tarpon Flies

The "Black Death" tarpon fly is one of the most productive here in Belize. There are times and locations, however, where other flies will do the job and sometimes do it better.
