FatBoy in the Bayou

Fly Fishing for Louisiana Redfish with Saltwater Fly Workshop's Fat Boy Fly.
After a months break from the water over Xmas I shot over to Louisiana's Biloxi Marsh to see who was home. Water was clear but very low and despite one good fish early on in the morning, they were absent from their regular haunts due to the lack of water. I eventually located a few fish and hooked into one at noon. It would be the first of many with an amazing few hours of clear water sight fishing for Louisiana Redfish on fly.

Well over twenty fish were caught during the 2 hour session, all on a Gold Bomber FatBoy tied by Saltwater Fly Workshop Australia. After finally losing the fly due to cockiness I decided it was time to leave them biting for another day and make the run home before winter started biting again.

Check out the Saltwater Fly Workshop range and their killer FatBoy flies here:

Fishing South Water Caye Belize

Video montage of a great week we spent in late 2011 staying at Pelican Beach Resort, South Water Caye in Belize.

The fishing here is super accessible with tailing bones right in front of your private bungalow style accommodation, you could even see them from the comfort of your own bed.

The large flat on the western side was loaded with mid sized Bonefish and my partner and 6 month old daughter could watch me roam the skinny waters from the comfort of the balcony.

The Bones on this flat were pretty spooky and had obviously seen their share of fisherman in the past, that said however they rolled over for the right presentation. The reef front was also home to plenty of Snapper, Barracuda and Triggerfish. Wandering the Caye North would also no doubt uncover a Permit or too.

While you could spend a week self guiding on foot from the comfort of your accommodation, local guides are also available to hit the numerous atolls in the area for Permit, Tarpon and more Bones.

This place is the perfect family destination for the fishing fanatic who has to balance family and fishing! Best of all it is at a reasonable price!
