Fly-fishing in Cuba offers a selection of some of the best flats fishing imaginable for Bonefish, Tarpon and Permit. With over four thousand islands and sand cays, Cuba has vast flats and mangrove-lined shallow bays providing extensive habitat for those beloved three saltwater sportsfish, providing the opportunity for a Grand Slam as well as a huge diversity in 'other' available species, including Barracuda, Snook, Snapper and Jacks make this a saltwater fly-fishers’ heaven.

The diversity of locations and accommodations from rustic rural lodges to self-sufficient live-aboard operators and high class hotels means there is a destination to suit from the hardcore fishermen up to those who prefer some style with their fishing.

Fly Odyssey has teamed up with a variety of Cuban operators to provide the most comprehensive range of fly-fishing opportunities available in Cuba.
