I get a lot of Questions about San Pedro. - 09/21/08 04:45 AM

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.

Just got back this AM at 2:00. Caught a bunch of bones and other stuff, drank a 6 pack of Belikins in one week, several black jacks, and smoked a number of cuban cigars. Planning a trip in November but don't have a ticket yet. But, I'll post it when it is set, and perhaps both of you guys will be on the island and we can get together for a day on the flats.

Don Greife, I'm just curious, was that a 6 pack of Belikins every day for a week or 1 6 pack for the week?

Well, you caught me !!!!
I confess that I usually have two beers after a long day on the water fishing. On rare occassions it is a different story at Wet Willys after supper.

saw that years ago, and just googled it:

All fishermen are liars, except for me and you, and I'm not so sure about you.

who's counting belikins anyway!
