We are Southbound on June 20th for a week at Mata Chica. Wondering if anyone could give some advice on a Fly Fishing Guide. And any advice in general would be nice as this is our first trip.

Several companies are listed at: //

They are prices, what to fish with, what to catch, lotsa good info there.

There there are also local folks who guide who I will list a few of...

The Guerrero brothers I've spent time with and know they have an environmental attitude. They give value while still leaving some fish for others. Everyone raves about their beach BBQ. Severo and his brother, Ramon Guerrero. Either one can give you a great day of fishing. Call Severo from the US @ 011 501 26 2324. Call Ramon @ 011 501 26 2325. They have been doing honest, reef friendly fishing for many years. They can also take you and your family on a full-day fish/snorkel trip for $ of the best bargains on the island when you figure in the beach BBQ w/ your catch. You won't find a better value in San Pedro. Price is for the boat for the day, I think up to 4 people. The Guerrero brothers live next door to each other. If one is booked, ask for the other one. Good luck! Remember, take some and leave some.

Some don't advise you about catch and release. Some will let you fish all day without regard to limit (although there is none, common sense should take over). Some charge too much for too little.

Omar Arceo, does a heck of a job. Gilberto or Tomas arranged by Amigo’s de Mar...

Luis Caliz at 011-501-26-5025, great guide and fisherman.

Nesto Gomez { a very good guide}-- one of the best tarpon and bonefish flyfisherman! He works out of El Pescador.

For flat fishing call Eloy Gonzalez at 026-2337

Pedro (Pete) Graniel. First rate equipment, including boats, and does both offshore, reef and inshore (tarpon, etc.) Keeps his boat just south of town. Ask anyone how to contact him. He's well known.

A friend went with a guy named Vince Dawson, and their bonefishing and reef fishing experience was "legendary", according to them. We saved enough for a barbecue the next day (grouper and snapper) and it was possibly the best tasting fish we had ever experienced. Apparently they made contact with him thru Rubys.

report, what to use, etc: //

Wow! Marty, thanks for the info. I take it it is best to plan the fishing trip myself as opposed to the people at Mata Chica booking it?

If your interested on fishing from the shore, as I was, I found a GREAT place on the Northern side of the Pull Ferry. Going north, @ 1/4 mile (if that) on the left side of the road. When we were there the week of the 26th of May, it was loaded with red snapper and barracuda. The snappers were hitting Chartruse jigs and just about anything you could drag need the surface.
Rapallas were feal good. Bring some lead leader for the cuda.
The bonefish were around but nothing was hitting. So go for the snappers bud.
Have a great time, watch for the crocks.

Let me know how you do.
