About The Western Caribbean Fly Fishing School
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 can't say enough about the people. Everyone was great from the time we got out of the cab until we left the restaurant. The young fellas that took us fishing were outstanding, They worked hard to find us some fish. It was a hot day with a breeze so it was choppy on the ocean (better for fishing we were told) We caught a variety of fish. Didn't get them all into the boat but that's fishing. Upon arriving back at shore we were met & taken to the resturant &served drinks while our fish were cleaned & prepared. We were then served a big platter of tasty fish with all the trimmings. My wife isn't a real fisher woman but even she said it was the best excursion of the cruise. I would definetly recommend this to anyone A big Thank You to Nick for arranging everything & it was great meeting you.

So fun to learn to fly fish We learned to tie and make our own fly and then used it to cast into the ocean. Wear pants that can get wet or shorts because you wade out into the ocean. You will need water shoes for stability. Overall it was a fun few hours

This was the second time my father and I travelled to Mahahual to fish with Nick. I would highly recommend it for any serious fly fisherman. We stayed in the Casitas for just short of 2 weeks and fished the beaches for Permit & Tiggers, the lagoons for Tarpon & Snook and Chetumal bay for all the above plus Bones, Snapper, Jacks and Cuda. My top tip would be take a 6wt (or lighter) and enjoy catching some of the Cichlid species in the lagoons not only do they look fantastic but the better sized ones definitely pull! Nick is a great guide and host, he’s knowledgable and really cares about the local area and it’s wildlife. If you want to be pampered go to the Keys, but If you want a proper fishing “adventure” contact Nick!

When Nick is available he is a good guide. Just don't count on him as he shows up when he wants or not at all. My friend and I have booked him 3 times in the last 3 months and he has not shown up twice. It usually is the same excuse. ( truck problems)

Anyone who has fly fished in the wind knows the issues, trying to place a fly into the foam when the wind is blowing and waves are coming in one after another.....tough sledding! Not the most ideal day to be out wondering around, however Nick made it a memorable one. He was prompt at the meeting place and got me back to the ship on time. We picked up 4 different species of fish in tough conditions. Afterwards took me to a couple of his favourite tacos stands, Thanks Nick see you again, maybe in my town of San Blas Nayarit!
