Tex is an outstanding fishing guide. He has a friendly demeanor and a patient style if you need a little additional coaching on fishing technique - I certainly did! Tex put me on my first bonefish ever, and it was a great to listen and learn from someone who has been fishing Roatan for years and years. I will undoubtedly return to Roatan, and fishing with Tex will be at the top of my list.

I recently returned from a week's fishing with Tex. He had promised me a Permit but so had many other guides over the years. Tex delivered. He is a consummate professional who's experience is only matched by his personable nature. He is a terrific guide who can spot fish under the most adverse conditions, a hard worker and a caring honest host to anyone he takes out. He has the only true flats boat on the island and can pole the boat as well as any seasoned guide anywhere in the world. I am happy to say I got my first Permit on a fly rod and it would never have been possible without Tex as my guide and now my friend.

Flyfishing at sea for permit and bonefish is not an easy task, but if Tex Dilbert is your guide, you are sharply increasing your chances to be sucessful, and moro important, to have a great time and enjoy the activity in a incredible way. I have spent one week in Roatan with my wife flyfishing with Tex and I can assure that he is an amazing guide that will effort as much as possible to put in front of you the best chances to hook the fish. He is incredible looking for the fish and has all the knowledge about the places, their behaviour and laso the best tricks in order to be able to get as much shots as possible everyday. I have enjoy several fishing trips in different parts of the worls and I can afirm that Tex is the best guide I ever had, the most commited with the target of his clients.Moreover, he is a very nice guy that makes you feel quite comfortable when you are at the boat, trying to help you and advicing how ti improve in each opportunity. Tex took care about all our stay in Roatan, not also the fishing, also about the lodging and meals. You will also not be dissapointied regarding this aspect. Lodging is quite nice, comfortable and clean, and just some meters away from his boats!. Meals are very well cooked and quite varied. You will not be disappointed if you are an avid anger and decide to fish with Tex. Your success will depend on you and on the fish whims, but for sure Tex will do all in his hands to achiev the target! Thanks a lot, Tex!

Had an amazing day with Tex. Great guy and a fantastic guide. Tex can find fish and knows everything about how to catch them. Picked me up at the hotel and we started searching for fish immediately. Got my first permit and had a blast. We saw lots of them and some brutes as well. Perfect boat and I highly recommend this guy! He will work his tail off to get you on the fish.

If you want to fish with the best then look no further! Tex is your man. My husband and I spent 5 days fishing with Tex and there's no one that knows the Roatan waters like him. He gives it 150% all day. I'm new to flyfishing and Tex was beyond patient with me and taught me a lot along the way! He walked me through every step and cheered me on the entire time. I honestly can not say enough good things about him and his guiding abilities. If you want to catch fish TEX DILBERT is your guy! SALVA VIDA man and we can't wait to see you again next time we are in Roatan :)
