Son Steve and I would like to fly fish the AC flats for Bone fish and deeper water for tarpon in November. I'm new to this board and have yet to visit your island. And, honestly, I've found it a little strange that I have not found a significant number of posts about fly fishing on this BB. Does no one on AC fly fish? Are there no fly fishing guides there? Is there a fly shop on the island? We would just like to try some new waters this fall. If there are "real, honest to goodness, fly fishing guides there", perhaps some of the locals and lurkers on this board will share their experiences with me. Guide names, contacts, and your opinions of the trips they provided to you would truly be appreciated. confused

I'll be happy to discuss my avatar with anyone who knows what it is.

Lots of bone fish, tarpen, permit etc. Do a search on the top right side of this page (just under "post a poll" button) and type in "fly fishing guide". That should help you cool

I want to be just like Capt Jeff when I grow up!

El Pescador is one of the most famous fishing lodges in the world, located on AC, with some of the best tarpon and bonefishing imaginable; fly fishing is the preferred method. Contact them.

Hey, wait un momento...I thought I was DA MAN?? For flyfishing...I would contact Pete Graniels brother on the lagoon side near the old soccer field. I can't remember his first name...just ask anyone on fishermans row. He is good. Flys can be had at a premium at El Pescadore Lodge. Flyfishing guides always have their own flys...they know best what works best. A 7 or 8 weight rod would be fine for the bonefish, but you'll need at least a 10 for the tarpon. Don't forget going for the grand slam. Catch a permit...the boney and tarpon will be easier. Good luck!!

Gone fishing!!
