I went down to Holbox Fly fishing Lodge last winter with my family...My dad said...
Holbox Island, Mexico Fly Fishing
There are devoted fishermen that travel the globe in search of giant Tarpon, and there are those that just want great fly fishing in paradise. Coincidentally, Holbox Fly Fishing Lodge has both. The Tarpon can exceed 100 pounds in April to September and there are 5 to 40 pounders available year round along with plentiful Barracuda, Snook and some Permit. So if Mexico fly fishing action in paradise is of interest to you - come visit Holbox Island, where you'll be treated like royalty.
Bring your favorite rods (see individual species for recommendations), you can get your Mexico fly fishing license on Holbox Island ($25/week).
Each morning of fly fishing will begin as the fishing guide reports the weather conditions- and depending upon his recommendations you and one other angler will head out in classic flats style pangas perfectly suited for our waters. During the summer months, the giant Tarpon gather nearby in 20 - 50 feet of water and we target them with shooting heads, with fish averaging from 50 - 175 pounds. The fish are feeding on the migrating bait fish and you will chase and intercept schools while presenting your fly in hopes of enticing a hungry Tarpon. Battles can last 30 to 45 minutes and you may bring one in three to the boat (or less!) however that single fish may well be the highlight of a lifetime of angling. You will return most days at 2:00 pm.
When wind conditions make casting efforts unproductive, we’ll move into the mangrove lagoons where your guide will pole your boats in the ancient manner in search of the healthy resident population of baby Tarpon and Snook. This is the classic flats angling, with marauding packs of Tarpon, Snook and more feeding on crab, baitfish and more. Casting will be at a premium here, though accuracy is usually more important than great distance. While the fish average 5-15 pounds, some 25 -40 pound specimens are caught each year, and every fish brought to hand is a trophy.
Even during perfect weather many guests will choose to try the lagoon fishing after doing battle with a few of the large offshore fish...each one takes a little bit out of you!
Upon your return, you'll wash down your rods in the rod cleaning station and perhaps a siesta in the lounges on the beaches edge- or a cold drink as you watch the sun drop into the Gulf. Later, Luciano will have the happy hour beverages and hors d’oeuvres ready for you and the guide as we discuss the day’s activity and then plan the schedule for the following morning. Our manager will advise you on the various excellent restaurant options available for you after happy hour. We will repeat this menu every day that you choose to swing a fly.
