Cayo Cruz / Romano is the latest and one of the most exciting new saltwater fishing locations to become available to ardent fly-anglers. Located on the North Coast of Cuba in the Jardines del Rey, it consists of a huge fishable area, which provides incredible opportunities for big Permit, alongside some really exciting Tarpon fishing on the flats.
The fishery is an enormous system of flats, lagoons and pristine estuaries. Commercial fishing within this designated area is strictly forbidden and rigorously enforced by the Cuban Government. The designated sport fish only area is 366 square kilometres in size, meaning that on an average day, each skiff has over 50 square kilometres to itself.
The fishing area is virtually untouched and represents one of the cleanest and most biologically diverse ecosystems we’ve ever fished. Cayo Romano flats are an inviting combination of hard-packed white sand and a semi-firm bottom that provides good wading, for here you can wade for 4 straight hours without heading back to the boat.
The average-sized Bonefish is a healthy 4lbs and during the course of the week, it is not unheard of for guests to land a fish or two in the 10lb range. Tailing Bonefish are common and often seen in singles and doubles, all the way up to schools of several hundred fish. What sets this location apart from so many other fisheries, is that guests can expect to encounter and get shots at good numbers of Permit each day. There are very few places on earth where guests can fish for big Bonefish each day and get shots at tailing Permit.
