Should I bring my fishing rod? Are rentals available?

Im trying to decide what to bring, does anyone know if there is a place that sells or rents decent fishing gear for fishing the lagoons, piers, or from a kayak? Any other advise on what I may want to bring would be apprieciated too. We will be there for 2 weeks in July.

We're heading back to Belize this summer and my husband will take his fly rods, as usual. We won't see Hopkins this trip, though. If you fly fish don't expect to be able to rent, though spendy guides might be able to supply you if you pay for a day trip. Not sure about spinning gear.

You might want to ask this question on the Belize Forum; lots of locals and expats post there including a few in Hopkins Village who are into fishing (try a search 1st).

Happy trails!

Bring your own gear, it is a no brainer. Are you bringing your shoes? Never trust that rented gear will be available, or that guides will have what you want. Ther is no tackle shop in Hopkins, there is a very small one in Placencia, an OK one in the City.

Are you fly guys are what? That will help with the tackle advice.

Most guides have casting equipment but not fly. However it may or may not work well. Bring your own!

How is the fishing from shore ,in and around Placencia . Is it worth a few casts. I am also thinking of bringing a fly rod in January. But if its not worth it i will just fish with a guide one day.
