El Pescador Fishing Report Jan and it was a nice quiet week at the lodge with just 5-6 boats going out on a daily basis. For everyone who went out for bonefish they did not disappoint and their cooperation was greatly appreciated by all. The Orvis Saltwater School dominated the fishing this week with the students and guests catching lots of bonefish daily.
The theory is easy to understand, but not so easy to execute. Once you spot a school of bonefish, simply cast the fly just past the fish’s perceived path far enough in front of the fish that you don’t spook it, but not so far that he has too much time to change paths. When the fish is in visual range of the fly, a couple short strips and fish on!! Now here is the hard truth… seeing these bright silver fish is not easy, the wind is blowing, the fish are spooky and you have just a few seconds to deliver the fly on target to moving fish about 40 feet away! When it all goes as planed it is simple
