Fly Fishing Trips: El Pescador

Washington Post writer Richard Morin describes El Pescador lodge in Ambergris Caye, Belize as one of the most likely places to catch a grand slam — a bonefish, permit and tarpon on fly. “‘Strip! Strip!’ ordered fishing guide Kachu Marin, crouched next to my friend Mike Traugott on the forward platform of the 23-foot panga. Mike began to strip in his fly line in short, deliberate tugs. Fifty feet from the skiff and three feet down in the greenish-blue water, the tiny fly inched forward erratically along the sandy bottom.” This is a more thorough piece than you’ll normally see in a newspaper, with some interesting side notes on the family who runs the lodge and on Ambergris itself.
