Guatemala Billfish

In this episode Jon heads to the Sailfish Oasis Resort on the Pacific Coast of Guatemala, which because of its excellent, long standing catch and release policy and the absence of any large commercial fishing is renowned for its billfish and tuna. He's on board the Allure II for a couple of days with the aim of catching a Sailfish on the fly. The only way to do this is by using the bait and switch technique, where the crew attract a fish to within casting range, using hookless baits or plugs, then Jon casts his fly at the fish as the teaser is quickly pulled out of the way. Sailfish are one of the fastest fish in the water and use their speed to generate some impressive airtime when they jump, so reeling them in to the boat is always exciting and hard work. Jon also samples some typical Guatemalan cuisine and nightlife, in the nearby city of Antigua, as well as visiting an ecologically conscious coffee plantation.
