  1. Hey folks, Excited to be heading to Belize in July. Couched under my "40th Birthday Present", I started pitching it to my wife four or five years ago, and it's officially got the green light. Even my toddler daughters approve, too. I'll be posted up on Caye Caulker July 18-22, and I'm excited to be down there when the bigger poons are on the move. Other misc. details: the new moon falls on the 20th. I think I'll carry an 8-11wts down with me, (including my 10wt CTS Affinity X-Herb Special (my first build)). I'm also bringing down an older T&T Vector and a Bauer M4 reel to donate to the local high school fly fishing program on the island. If anyone has landed in that neck of the woods, I'd love to hear about your experience. Any insights you can share about tides/moons, water temps, feeding habits, etc. I'm sure I'll get it all from the guide, but I need something to preoccupy my time with.
  2. Retired and have way too many rods, reels and other fishing equipment. Downsizing to just what I need. Billy Pate Anti Reverse RH (Ted Juracsik) Tarpon on TFO BVK 9' 12WT 4 piece. $450 picked up. Billy Pate Anti Reverse RH (Ted Juracsik) Bonefish $290 picked up. I can meet within an hour of zip 08759. I am in Whiting (Manchester Township), NJ in Ocean County. The reason for meeting is I want to make sure you are happy with the condition and equipment before purchasing. Thanks Gil
  3. I am heading to the Bahamas in June, I will be taking my fly rod just in case. I want to just walk the beaches and see if i can catch some bonefish. Does anybody here have any experience with that? What all would i need? Fishing license? Permission? Permit? And as far as gear? Thank you in advance.
  4. SOL'ers, Headed to the Bitter End in North Sound, Virgin Gorda. Thinking of bringing a travel rod and having a go at the local fish. I've been here a bunch but never fished. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Looking for any help regarding fishing in cuba. I will be in havana for only a few days. Oct 28-31 and looking to fish one of those days. I know im pretty far away from the great flats there but maybe there is a great guide service who can help guide me to some bonefish/tarpon or possibly a charter boat who can take us out for marlin,wahoo, tuna etc. thank you any help!
  6. Lets give this another try. I posted several days ago, but no responses, so at the suggestion of another member, I am trying again, this time with specific questions. First, a little background. I have been fly fishing freshwater since I was a kid, but only recently has it become more than just a part time hobby. Over the last two years I have spent a considerable amount of time on the water in Montana, and more recently in Alaska, where I now live. April will be my first foray to a salt water destination, and while I wont be in St. Maarten specifically to fish, I will have lots of free time and will definitely be bringing my rod. So pretty much I am starting at ground zero. Apologies for the noob status, but I wanted to give some explanation for my questions, should they sound ridiculous, because in truth, I don't know much right now. Now a few questions for your consideration... 1. Are there any specific books/you tube videos/pod casts I should check out before my first salt water experience? Any other sites where I might be able to find good info on St. Maarten? From what I can tell, its not a common fly fishing destination and beta is hard to find. 2. What should I be looking at for a fly quiver to bring down there? I am just starting to tie my own flies, but with job related time limitations over the next 2 months, it is unlikely I will be able to tie enough to use on this trip. If possible, I would like to buy a complete salt water fly kit. It sounds like permit, tarpon, and bonefish are what I will be looking for. What flies should I make sure to have? Sounds like chartreuse clouser patterns are good. Any place online recommended to pick up these and a few others? 3. What rigging options I should try? Steel leader seems to be mentioned for tarpon in other threads. I have WF floating rio grand on my spool now, but should I consider bringing another spool with a different line? 4. What are the regs/license requirement for St. Maarten? 5. Any techniques that I should focus on? I am watching videos on the slow strip that seem to work well for tarpon. What other techniques should I become proficient in that will help me down there? Thank you in advance for anyone that takes the time to respond with info relating to these questions, or any other general beta you are willing to provide. Stoked to give salt water a try, and I am looking forward to exploring the opportunities on St. Maarten. My plan is to post my experiences on this page after the trip, so if nothing else, hopefully it will help someone else out.
