From the moment we got to Papa Gallo, I knew this place was absolutely 100% about Roosterfish. Bill's beach is completely the way to get away from people and traffic, not to mention that if offered some of the best Rooster action that we saw during our stay and we did not see another soul there. This being my first trip to Baja to chase Roosters, I have been completely taken over by the power of these fish and this fishery. As a full time fly fishing guide who spends over 300+ days a year on the water, this is the most challenging and pure form of fishing that I have ever done. From chases, follows, denials, encouraging refusals, and eats Roosterfish are the most amazing and draining of all saltwater fish that I casted to. If you are looking for the real deal, look no further. This "no guide / no boat" style of fly fishing will capture and take hold of the true angler deep inside. This is no joke! Get ready to run and have all of your wit and angling ability tested. BTW, strip faster... I cannot wait until next year to return and you bet I will be staying at Papa Gallo.
