Bonefish & Tarpon Belize
Host Mark Melnyk is in for a real treat in this episode of The New Fly Fisher, as he takes an ultimate fishing holiday to fly fish for Bonefish, Permit and the mighty Tarpon on the saltwater flats of Belize. It would be hard to argue that these aren’t the most desirable species in the world to catch on a fly rod, not just because of their picturesque habitat, but because they are all knowns as the hardest of fighters. Hook any of these species in the glassy clear water barely a foot deep and you’ll have a true scrap on your hands. Barely stepping out the front door of Tarpon Caye Lodge, Mark and friend Tom Rosenbauer are immediately greeted with a bubbling school of Bonefish. After countless bones and Permit, guide Ernest Garcia takes the duo out to deeper water for a chance at every fly fisherman's wet dream, a big, silver, acrobatic Tarpon. Sun, sea and big old sport fish, what else could you ever need?
