We are coming to AC at the end of the year and my husband is about to start tying some flies for Bonefish, Permit and Tarpon. He would just like to know if it is necessary to add weed guards to them for fishing AC. He is fishing with Capt.Bicho for a few days but would like to know if flyfishing the cut area would be any good and what he would be likely to catch from the beach there as that is where we are staying. Any tips or info would be greatly appreciated.

We've done well using Crazy Charlies, mostly white and with flashabou material. Micro jigs, 1/60 onces, with white marabou feather materials,work out well. Chartreuse, yellow, and hot pink can hit too sometimes. Clousers, and deceivers are good too at times. Of course every fisherman or fly-casters always find their own flies. Very-best-Wishes, Mel S......

Actually, I'm not really sure about this one myself. I think what I'm going to do is add some simple monofilament guards in the shape of a V (40 lb test dia.)to act as a simple weed guard on about 25% of my Bonefish flies. Normally, I'd think it would be a problem if all your Charlies and Gotchas were tied with heavy lead eyes, as they will go deep into the Turtle grass, and fast too. However, since most people that I've talked to about AC and most articles that I've read have suggested light bead-chain, mono eye, or unweighted(because they're in thin water and spooky); I would assume that they're not going to go that deep into the grass to cause a problem. The other side of the coin though is that obviously there's a lot of grass near shore. From most of the article I've read, it is suggested that at least some of your flies are tied with weed guards. I'd actually like to hear someone else's opinion on this subject. I'm going to send my guide an e-mail and ask him what he thinks, as he ties his own flies for Bones. I'll post his reponse.

where do you live in the UK ? About 6 years ago we traveled to Aviemore, Scotland. The flyfishing was incredible ! We never caught any Atlantic Salmon, but we caught some wonderful German Brown trout. You should do well in Belize, it is a beautiful part of the world. If you have some extra time, you may want to try fishing near Placentia. The permit fishing was great. best-wishes, mel
