I freely admit that I have this addiction to fly fishing the flats near AC. I also admit that I spend too much money traveling to San Pedro 5 or 6 times a year and that my kids really hate it when I tell them that I'm spending their inheritance. HEY I'm 78, and I really don't care what you think. Well, my kids and many of my friends ask "Why do you go all the way to Belize to fish salt flats, when you could go to Louisiana, Texas of florida"?... The answer is as one might expect,,, Time and money. I can leave Kansas City early in the morning and be on a flats boat in San Pedro before noon. It takes 2 days just to get to any of the other places I've mentioned. The cost to fish for a week in San Pedro is about 1/2 that of the other places. I'd be interested to know if anyone has found other places comperable to San Pedro for travel time and expense fom a fly fisherman. Flats guides in the Florida keys ask $600/day.
