SALTWATER   >   MEXICO

me-casa-blanca-04

Mexico is widely regarded as having some of the finest saltwater fly-fishing on the planet. Hugely popular, it is ideal for beginner and experienced anglers alike.

Down both coastlines, east and west, there is a large number of species that love to eat a well presented fly pattern. On the east, the remote bays of the southern Yucatan Peninsula offer the best opportunity for a Grand Slam in the Caribbean. The permit fishing is exceptional and it is a great place to learn to bonefish.

The bays of Ascension, Espiruto Santo and Chetumal will provide a memorable flats experience. The North Yucatan is home to some great baby and migratory tarpon fishing in Holbox and Campeche.

The west coast of Mexico offers a unique environment for anglers to fish the bluewater off the Baja Peninsula for Tuna, Marlin and Sailfish while inshore the angler can fish for the irresistable and iconic Roosterfish.
