With our Cuba partners, we now have access to the exclusive fishing rights on the designated Cayo Largo Natural Reserve, which encompasses some 140 square miles of saltwater flats and channels. This has to be one of the best places in the world to catch a grand slam and super grand slam all on the fly.
Cayo Largo is a small resort island belonging to Cuba, in the Caribbean Sea. It is the second-biggest island in Cuba’s Canarreos Archipelago. Although only a relatively small island, it is blessed with an almost continuous stretch of pretty beach, notably along its south coast, there are six beaches all of which will be able to satisfy your sun and sand lust. There is also an abundance of natural wildlife including Iguanas and Giant Sea Turtles.
The northern side of Cayo Largo, where the submarine shelf is extended, is the ideal environment for fly fishing enthusiasts it measures an average depth of 1.5 meters ideal depths for Bonefish, Permit, Tarpon, and Jack Crevalle.
You will also be able to see Permit up to 45lb zipping and darting in and around schools of Bonefish. This is a big Bonefish destination where the average weight is approx 6lbs; you cannot beat stalking these Bonefish while wading in lukewarm water on the sand flats.
The coral barrier protects the south side of Cayo Largo and its white beach of fine sands and the flats marks it out as a fantastic place for wading. The majority of Cayo Largo Flats have firm bottom ideal for wading and most days you will have the option of either fly fishing from the skiff or walking these stunning flats.
The real beauty of this fishing is that with our partners we have divided all this vast area into 38 different zones. All zones get rotated about, making sure that we always have areas that are well and truly rested. Each evening you, our fly fishing manager and the guides will determinate the next day’s schedule on the basis of careful rotation of the productive areas to ensure the grounds are rested. This is just one reason why this destination has become one of the top 5 locations in the world to catch a grand slam (Bonefish, Permit & Tarpon all in the same day)
