Category: Family Fishing, Saltwater Fly Fishing

Not only does this beautiful resort provide fantastic fly-fishing but it is also an exciting and entertaining destination that you can enjoy with your family. The beachfront location of this resort provides several amenities for your enjoyment, whether it is wading the pristine flats in search of grand slam species or booking in for one of the resorts superb massages El Pescador has it covered.


Belize is situated by the Caribbean sea and the country is known for having the lowest population density of any central American country. English is the national language of Belize and this along with its fantastic fishing is another reason that makes it such a popular destination for English speaking anglers.


When fishing the vast flats around El Pescador you will have the option of targeting different species on the different flats. There are an abundant of Bonefish, you will be spoilt for choice with some of the most superb Bonefish flats only two minutes from the hotel. These fish average 5-7lb and a 9ft 7# rod will be the perfect tool to cast a mix of classic flats fly patterns at tailing groups. When scanning the Bonefish flats with your guide it is always worth having a 8# rod set up as you are likely to spot some of the massive shoals of Permit that live on these flats, with fish averaging 8 – 10lb these encounters always get the heart racing.

El Pescador is an attractive prospect for Tarpon fishing because each year it has resident fish to over 100lb. When hunting Tarpon with your guide you will be able to cruise over 250 square miles of fishery in search of some very big fish. 10# rods with strong saltwater reels will give you the ability to go toe to toe with these silver torpedoes but remember to pick flies with super strong hooks.


With a guiding team who are fully trained casting instructors and most with many seasons under their belts, you cannot put yourself in better hands for a week on the flats. El Pescador has a good collection of demo rods and reels that it can lend free of charge to you if you don’t want to take your own gear and in the well-stocked shop, you can buy all the terminal gear and flies you will need for the week.
