“Fly Fishing for All”

Caribbean Fly Fishing Outfitters
Reviewed February 5, 2013

I have always wanted to try fly fishing; when i discovered we could do it the one day we were visiting BVI, i jumped at the chance. We were blessed to have the owner of the company, Ian, lead us for our half day excursion. We started with a two hour stop ten minutes from Nanny Cay Marina; the company supplied all of the equipment as well as the wading boots. Ian instructed both of us individually with the most patience; it certainly seemed he wanted to share his love for the sport. we then preceded to another site a ten minute ride down the coast; we waded out in very shallow water (broken coral reef bed) where we discovered some fish. Unfortunately, we had no luck in catching a fish but it still was a great way to be introduced to the sport. I would defintely visit with Ian again on our return to BVI.

Fly Fishing in the British Virgin Islands had attracted us for long and this was the opportunity with Caribbean Outfitters. Fortunately, we could have a great time because of their excellent guide. He was an expert who exhibited exemplary experience. Came up with some Bonefish and Snook for a catch. Tarpon seemed ticking all the time. Good experience that we will love to share with friends and other travelers.

I was in the BVI in April of 2005 and booked a trip. We had an identical experience as the ones described!

I am planning another trip for 2009 and was researching some guide services when I came upon these reviews. We thought we had just picked a bad day, but to my dismay I read about identical experiences, 2 and 3 years later.

I will look elsewhere for guide services this time around.

We found this company pricey, even by Carribean standards, and the service certainly did not justify the cost. Many of the promises made on the company's website and by the owner's wife (and booking agent) on the phone, such as an included lunch or snorkeling side-trips for non-fishing members of the group, did not materialize once our credit card information was handed over. Desite obvious misrepresentations by his wife, the owner always seemed to err on the side of faulting the customers for the miscommunications. After complaining modestly about various unfulfilled promises, the owner cheerfully offered up a handful of anectdotes about customers who declined to pay (or had their credit cards denied) and who were subsequently thrown into Carribean prisons for years. The implications were transparent.
The fishing itself was mediocre at best. Complaining about the price of gas, the owner brought us to only one location, although there were virtually no fish to be found there that day (we only had opportunities to cast three or four times the entire trip). Needless to say, we did not catch any fish.
The relentless but well-intentioned cheerleading of the owner's female assistant did little to improve our trip, though her efforts were the only reason we left a tip at all.
Although fly fishing in the tropics sounds like a dream, we think our money could have been better spent elsewhere.
