Best way to get to Utila

I am trying to find the best/easiest way to get to Utila?

Where should we fly in to?

Better to take the ferry or fly over to the island?

Also, any suggestions for diy fishing around the island?

"better" in terms of what? Cheapest, most scenic, most convenient, fastest? The cheapest most direct and most convenient is to fly to Roatan, most any day of the week, and then the fast ferry. Flying from Roatan to Utila may actually take longer than the ferry. Plus the ferry drops you in the middle of Utila town. The ferry schedule now is coordinated with the mainland flight schedules. The ferry terminal in Coxen Hole is a short taxi ride away, so short you could walk it if you had time. See if you can get an overnight flight from, say, Seattle to Houston or Miami or maybe Dallas, then connect to a late morning nonstop to RTB.
