Overview

For beginners we have the famous fly fishing school, for advanced fly fishermen theres the guide service. Based on the best bit of fly fishing within a 10 mile radius, protected by the barrier reef the waters are gentle and shallow. On shore, a wonderful beach club with the best food and service in town. The perfect place for wives, friends and family to watch the fly fishing adventure. For those with experience ask us for guided fly fishing trips by boat to the nearby Tarpon lagoons and walk and wade up the numerous beaches.

I will declare my interests in Nick Denbow, I suppose he's a protégé of me in the fact I helped him learn to fish. What this man is now is a fly casting, fish seeing, fish catching machine. If there was a person to catch...More

Nick knows all the spots! Unfortunately the weather was a bit uncooperative while we were in town, making the fishing tough, but Nick still managed to put us on tarpon, snook and permit. Had a great time fishing with him!

I've been fishing the flats and lagoons for 16 years. Nick's the guide to have in your boat if you want to catch fish and improve your technique. He has fish-ray vision and his permit flies are extraordinary. He's a pleasure to spend the day...More
