I would recommend that you bring all your own tackle and flies. There are a couple of guides on the should also look at the postings on this subject on the Belize Forumns page which offers some very good and detailed advise. If you plan it right, you won't be disappointed as there are many species right of the beach.

Do some good background checking on your "guide" many "guides" are little more than boat operators who will be able to entertain you with stories of Belize and the Cayes but offer little in the way of instruction as to fly choice equipment to use, etc. All for 2-$300 US a bargain. IMHO Caye Caulker is a wide open for a quality guide with his or her own quality equipment and machinery.

Soon the fishing guides with be of the caliber currently available in diving operators but not yet.

it's not very easy trying to find guides, there is very little contact details for the caye it's self. i want a guide for two people for at least five days . i have seen prices between $185 and $300 per day, but i would hope that i would be able to get a good guide for about the $200 mark per day if we are going to use him/her for that amount of time. Any thoughts??

there are no real fishing guides on c.c. hire a boat have him take you to a large flat and wade. tell him to take a nap or he will either spook your fish or get into your backcast. i have fished around c.c. on and off for about 5 years its been awhile since ive had the pleasure. best tarpoon fly the cacaroach bigger the better. best bonefish snapping shrimp unweighted and weighted taller the grass the lighter the fly. i have found the wieghted fly make a nice sound when it lands gets them bones charging in fast!!!. dont let the guide try to pole you around for fish the boats are too noisey and the good fish flee. have em take you to the large flat on the southern side of caye chapel. get there before the tide starts to come up practice your casting the wind is a factor!! when you feel comfy about your cast stand in the shallow part of the flat should be ankle high from here you can see the fish when they come in. large fish and large schools push alot of water. it takes time to tell the differece. use a 9 wieght rod for your bones you get tempted to go light when the winds not bad but the longer you have the bone on your line the better chance your just gonna feed the sharks and cudas. if the cuda get bad and sometime they just hit every bone you hook. i use an old tarpoon fly and some wire leader and then take em to wish willys let him cook em good. well every one told me to go to turneff for fly but i always got my fix around c.c. oh about the permit. be ready to cast be agressive they show up outa nowhere and disapear before you know it. most of the time your lucky if you get one cast em. they will chase a shrimop pattern. tried alot of crab patterns never worked maybe the fly maybe me i havent figured it out yet. good luck where good wading boots and watch em they seem to walk away on c.c. good luck and have fun
