Few places in the world can match the pristine beauty of southern Belize.

Here the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean meet the coastal flats near the village of Placencia to create some of the most exciting fly fishing to be enjoyed anywhere.

Water temperature is 78 to 85 F with air temperature ranging from 80 to 90 F. Soft, ocean-breezes keep it very comfortable in skimpy attire. The best weather is October through May.The extremely clear water of the Caribbean offers sight fishing at its best.

The flats and lagoons around Placencia host thousands of Permit.

Around Placencia numerous permit come in all sizes from 4 to over 30 pounds, feed on many different organisms and patrol many divers habitats, including hard coral flats, deep water trenches and shallow mud bottom lagoons. They have a discriminatory nature, incredible eyesight and stamina beyond belief. They offer the fly angler an outstanding challenge.

Placencia, Belize and our good friend and guide Derrick Muschamp offer the best combination to be found anywhere for catching Permit on a fly.

Bonefish are readily available all season.

Bonefish also come in many sizes and range from 1 to 10 pounds with 2 to 4 pound average. These skinny water speedsters may be the ultimate light-tackle game fish. They like little flies that are easy to cast. They are a kick on 6-7-8 wt. Gear.

Tarpon of all sizes are also plentiful, from three to thirty pounders in creeks and rivers, to one hundred pounders in the Cayes.

Barracuda are like chain saws with fins and jet engines. They are fast…fast enough to run down bonefish in the open water and kill them. Smooth, durable reels are required.

Barracuda have wickedly sharp teeth. One fish per fly is common. Wire leaders are mandatory. They come large on the reefs around Placencia. Big Cuda's are smart…real smart. Stealth and good casting skills are required.
