Belize Fly Fishing Trip Report Spring 2011

Belize Flyfishing

By Chris Frangiosa

Fishing has taken me too many beautiful places and one of my favorite destinations is Belize. Belize is located in Central America and borders Guatemala. Boasting the second biggest reef in the world, Belize is a mecca for divers and fisherman from all around the world. In particular, the Bonefish, Permit and Tarpon fishing is world class and can be had within a short boat ride from one of the many coastal towns.

Our last expedition to Belize was in March of 2011 and was a very successful venture. The recent ban on killing Bonefish for food has increased the average size of Bonefish greatly and many were caught and released on our last excursion. This particular trip was to the northern part of the country to an area called Ambergris Caye. Ambergris is a great area in that it offers great fishing opportunities, beautiful accommodation options and many restaurants, shops and bars to hit after a long day on the water.

Belize FlyfishingIf you haven’t fly fished in saltwater before I definitely suggest that you give it a try. Belize is a great place to learn as there are tons of fish and it is relatively easy to escape the strong winds that often accompany ocean fishing. I have a fall trip that is booking now, let me know if you are interested and we can discuss more details.

Chris is putting together a fall trip to Belize and to learn more you can contact him at

I fished Ambergis Caye while on my honeymoon with my wife. First off, great place to visit and fish!! We chartered a bonefish guide and hit the flats and my wife caught one on a spin rod before I could connect on my fly rod, it was our first argument as a married couple to say....
