Guatemala fishing conditions

Flyfishing for Sail fish in Guatemala

There is much we could write, and much left to be written………..about flyfishing for large pelagic sail fish in Guatemala. Such topics as the right tippet, knots, hooks to use (single ? double ??), hook setting etc etc………..but in the end probably the most important factor in at least getting a bite out of a lit up sail fish is what you land in front of him at the stern.

About half of our clients now exclusively flyfish when they come fishing to Guatemala – and we have seen all kinds of great gear. Often, inside the gear box is a grand assortment of flies, some tied lovingly by hand.

We used to carry a decent selection on our boats as well – but after years of testing and observing, we now carry only two…………and they are the same fly just in two color options. As far as I know, just about every charter operator in the region, when pressed, will vouch for the same fly – Cam Sigler in pink&white. Save some baggage space – this is what the fish want !!

 

Oh ! and the other fly ??…………..Cam Sigler popper in Chartreuse.
