I'm coming down the end of January with a group carrying fly rods and high hopes of having decent bonefishing.
The group(4 - 6 anglers, depending on the wives wishes) will need guides. What is the current rate for guides there? I've found a number of postings with guide names and appreciate that info!

Hey rdb,
If you want to get an all inclusive fishing package where they take care of everything from the flight to the island all the way to fishing rod holders in your hotel room then El Pescador(www.elpescador.com)is the place to go . They are a bit North on the island but definitely worth the trip. They will cater to all your fishing needs. They even have a fly fishing "teacher" named Jim who will help you get the "double haul" down right. They have casting platforms on their docks so you can practice day or night.
Its a short boat ride to downtown AC where all the restaurants and clubs are.
I went back in Aug 2001 and it was definitely worth it. I will be back for sure.

Thanks for the reply. El Pescador is a fine lodge but this trip is also for a few non-fishers. We will be staying at the Paradise Villas and getting guides per day. We also don't need much help. I've fished flats around the Carribean for 20 years and a couple of us have taugh fishing and casting for "a leading tackle manufacturer" in the Northeast for years. We kind of got the casting thing down. I'm assuming that the guides listed on this board charge around $175 - 200 per day but I just wanted verification so I can give my group as much info as possible. Also, any new or hot flies that we just gotta bring???? Any other thoughts are more than welcome!

Give George Bradley a try. I fished with him and caught lots of bones and jumped several tarpon. Had 2 permit on, but they broke off. George works very hard and is an excellent guide.
