For beginners we have the famous fly fishing school, for advanced fly fishermen theres the guide service. Based on the best bit of fly fishing within a 10 mile radius, protected by the barrier reef the waters are gentle and shallow. On shore, a wonderful beach club with the best food and service in town. The perfect place for wives, friends and family to watch the fly fishing adventure. For those with experience ask us for guided fly fishing trips by boat to the nearby Tarpon lagoons and walk and wade up the numerous beaches.

I will declare my interests in Nick Denbow, I suppose he's a protégé of me in the fact I helped him learn to fish. What this man is now is a fly casting, fish seeing, fish catching machine. If there was a person to catch a fish for you to save your life this is the guy. His knowledge of... More

The reviews you read on Nick are 100% accurate. He's patient, funny, and knows his stuff. You will not get a better guide in the area period. It's more than apparent he loves what he does, and loves showing others about it. He was a pleasure to communicate with prior to our dates, he answered promptly, and even gave us... More

If you want a unique cruise excursion, than this is it. The reason it is so unique and fun is simply Nick Denbow. He takes your limited amount of time and packs it with personal instruction and attention. I am an avid fisher who has never fly fished before. I figured if I was going to learn, there was no...

All the reviews are 100% accurate. He deserves no less than 10 stars. From the initial greeting to the final goodbye, Nick was a fantastic teacher and friend. Anybody within a 5 hour drive of here needs to make a trip to see Nick. Nick was so patient and you can tell genuinely loves guiding and teaching. YOU CANNOT GO... More

Nick knows all the spots! Unfortunately the weather was a bit uncooperative while we were in town, making the fishing tough, but Nick still managed to put us on tarpon, snook and permit. Had a great time fishing with him!

I've been fishing the flats and lagoons for 16 years. Nick's the guide to have in your boat if you want to catch fish and improve your technique. He has fish-ray vision and his permit flies are extraordinary. He's a pleasure to spend the day with.

This is our second visit in Mahahual and we have now spent 4 days fishing with Nick. And we will be back. Nick knows where to take you to find fish, what fly to use, and how to have fun doing it. Whether you are a newbie (me) or have years of fly fishing experience (hubby) you will enjoy your... More

While on a girls trip to Costa Maya a was lucky enough to meet Nick and I was fortunate that he was willing to take me out (on Such short notice) to get my first Tarpon. He certainly delivered, I landed 2 tarpon that day as well as 4 snook. He knows the water in the area and where to... More
