Guatemala is renowned for its amazing big game fishing, the boats that head offshore trolling catch some phenomenal fish with including Dorado and Sailfish. The Sailfish fishing here is so good that some have dubbed this the Sailfish capital of the world. Not only do they target these Sailfish on conventional tactics by trolling and lure fishing they also target them fishing with flys.
The fly fishing for Sailfish in Guatemala is so good due to the warm currents that flow past the coast. These currents bring a massive amount of baitfish which is followed by huge shoals of hungry Sailfish. It’s this amount of fish that provides fly fishing anglers lots of chances to cast to teased up fish, resulting often in multiple hookups.
