If you’re a fly fishing enthusiast or want to try it for the first time - then this is for YOU …

You Are About To Enjoy The Most Exciting Fly Fishing Adventure You’re Ever Likely To Experience!

Read on to discover how Fly Fishing with the Most Experienced Guides in Cozumel, deploying the world’s Finest Fishing Tackle, will give you the Experience of a Lifetime …

Dear Fellow Fly Fishing Enthusiast …

You certainly deserve congratulations for choosing the Cozumel region for your vacation. Not only is the scenery truly breathtaking, it’s also the best fly fishing area for more than 100 miles.

So it would be tragic if you were denied some spectacular fly fishing, simply because:

  • You only have a few hours ashore from your cruise liner.
  • You’re staying elsewhere on the Mayan Riviera, such as in Playa del Carmen.
  • You haven’t brought your fishing tackle.

NO problem …

In fact, we delight in transforming these problems into pleasures …

... for example: have you yet experienced the sheer joy of using Orvis or Sage fishing tackle? They’re universally acknowledged to be the very best.

Both of these top brands are a sheer joy to use and are guaranteed to enhance your fishing pleasure.

But we both know the finest equipment in the world is of little use without an equally top quality native guide to show you the little-known, very best places to cast your fly – which is where I and my family can help you.

So here’s a tiny taster of what YOU can look forward to on your Fly Fishing trip in Cozumel…

You’ll feel the excitement rising as soon as we meet and embark for a short ride to the marina, where our little fleet of three Pangas are moored. Then, after a pleasant 20 minute trip, we arrive at the lagoons of Monte Cristo, Paso Balem and Rio de la Plata.

Then the fun really begins as we start our hunt...

  • But fear not: because, unlike many other bonefish locations in the Caribbean, our lagoons teem with bonefish all year round. So, whenever you come, you’ll be assured of plenty of sport.
  • You can also catch permit fish and tarpon, when in season.
  • And in no time at all, your guide will be alerting you that the bonefish is tailing and coming towards you – even before you can see it.

After that, with the help of your guide, it won’t be too long before you enjoy the thrill of catching your first bonefish.

And don’t forget the photo of you with your prize to show those envious folks back home!

And, when all this excitement has sharpened your appetite, you’ll be ready for a couple of cold beers and a light snack – all included, of course – as is the world-class Orvis and Sage fishing tackle, expertly fashioned flies, lures and even your own fishing licence!

Then, after that, you and the bonefish get another chance to outwit each other.

Last week 14 Anglers booked our Fishing Trip for Bonefish, Snook and baby Tarpon. Today it's your turn.

The CLOCK IS TICKING

Why should you settle for anything less than a life full of wonderful experiences?

Why should you pass on this golden opportunity to achieve the highest level of fly fishing success by being tutored and cheered on by the very best team of fly fishing guides in the whole Cozumel area – AND gain kudos and the respect of your fishing buddies?

You see, because we value personal attention to your requirements so highly, there is an unfortunate downside. And it’s this …

… because we are a small outfit we can guarantee a very personal, hands-on attention to our elite clients - but it also means we only deploy 3 boats.

And, with about five cruise ships arriving here every single day of the week, disembarking a total of 20,000 visitors daily – plus the folks vacationing in the local hotels – these naturally include many fly fishing enthusiasts, who all want to hire the very best crews.

So that means our 3 boats get booked up lightening fast.

I thought I’d better mention it, because I’d HATE for you to miss out on a fishing trip of a lifetime, just because I failed to point out how severely limited our slots are.

Which means you really need to move FAST right now – or risk missing out badly

Of course you can ‘think about it’.

But, if you do, you run the very real risk of coming back later, checking our booking site (which is constantly updated in real time) and being dismayed to find you have been beaten to it by others and all three boats are already booked up on your chosen day.

That means, if you only have that one particular day for your trip, you’ll either have to forgo the trip entirely or have to settle for a second rate trip which will NOT necessarily fish in the areas our experienced crew know to be good spots.

And you might find yourself struggling to understand the broken English spoken by the crew – which can be downright dangerous when fly fishing the flats.

OR

You can decide you deserve the best and move swiftly to secure one of the very limited places with our most experienced guides and immediately enjoy a feeling of great calm, because you know with absolute certainty you have made the right choice.

So I and my experienced team are really looking forward to providing you with an exceptional fishing trip, the memories of which you’ll treasure forever.

Why should the best be reserved for others & not you?

Haven’t you worked hard to afford this trip to Cozumel and so don’t you deserve the best that is on offer?

Charles showing his catch during a fly fishing tour.

Because of our small fleet of just 3 boats and our strict limit on passenger numbers, designed to give you the best possible personal experience, we often have difficulty coping with all the bookings coming from the 20,000 cruise passengers that arrive in Cozumel daily.

So, now you know what a wonderland the Cozumel’s Fishing grounds are, I’d hate it if your hesitation in booking your fishing trip with us condemned you to having to settle for a second best Guide that does not take good care of you and your fishing party, or worst, puts you in the hands of inexperienced Staff that speak Spanish only and you can’t understand a word they say.

So I strongly suggest you check the availability on your chosen day - right now – and then go ahead and book your Fly Fishing Trip.

Remember, we provide you with absolute VIP attention, but it comes at a price …

… you need to book your trip right now, because you’ll hate yourself if you delay and miss out on a fishing trip of a lifetime.

I’ll leave the last words to Charles Davis from North Carolina …

Frequently Asked Questions

We specialize in fly and spin fishing in the flats, and we mainly target Bonefish all year around. However, there are other species we can target during some months of the year. For specific information about the species available, please see our Cozumel Flats Fishing season section.

We go to the Northern Flats of Cozumel to fly and spin fishing. In the flats area, there are 3 lagoons; Rio de la Plata lagoon, Paso Balem lagoon, and Monte Cristo lagoon.

We suggest you to bring polarized sunglasses, long-sleeve shirt, long pants, wading shoes, etc. We'll provide all light tackle and flies you will use to cast the flats in Cozumel. We use Orvis tackle, and it's in excellent conditions.

We suggest you to look at our Tackle and Flies suggestions section for detail information about tackle, flies, and lures that work best by fish we target.

Our meeting point is in the heart of downtown at the Local Church "San Miguel" in the main Plaza. No worries, you won't get lost. Cozumel is a very small Island, and there's only one Church in Downtown Plaza. We'll be waiting for you with a sign with your name on it, and if you are a fisherman you will spot the fisherman waiting for you. Just kidding.

Easy cake. Just grab a taxi at the Cruise Pier and ask the taxi driver to take you to the "San Miguel Church" in Downtown Plaza. The distance is about 1.5 mile and the ride should take less than 5 minutes.

If you are coming to Cozumel from Playa del Carmen (Mayan Riviera area), just go to the Ferry Pier in Playa del Carmen, and take the Ferry to cross over to Cozumel. The ferries run every hour, and the ride takes about 35 minutes. Once you get here in Cozumel, just walk outside the Ferry Pier, and cross the street towards inside the Plaza, then walk straight 2 blocks and the "San Miguel Church" is right there.

If you are coming from Cancun, please take a taxi or Bus from Cancun to Playa del Carmen. The ride from Cancun to Playa del Carmen takes about 45 minutes. Once in Playa del Carmen, just go to the Ferry Pier to cross over to Cozumel. The ferries run every hour, and the ride takes about 35 minutes. Once you get here in Cozumel, just walk outside the Ferry Pier, and cross the street towards inside the Plaza, then walk straight 2 blocks and the "San Miguel Church" is right there.

Note: the Playa del Carmen Ferry Pier is only 2 blocks from the Bus Station where you arrived from Cancun.

You get the fishing time you booked for. The transportation time (car and panga travel time) is not considered in the fishing time you get. So, if you booked a 4 hours Fishing Trip, your total trip time will be around 5 hours.

This is up to your Cruise's scheduled port time in Cozumel. The average rule is either 4 hours or 6 hours Trip. We suggest you to book your Trip to depart 1 hour after your Cruise is scheduled to dock into Cozumel, because it will take about 30 minutes for the Cruise to allow passengers to disembark once it's docked.

Yes, and it's automatically covered by us when you book your Trip. No worries.

Yes, everything you need for the flats is covered in the rate you paid at the time of booking your trip. We'll provide you with tackle (both fly and spin tackle), flies, fishing license, round-trip transportation from our meeting point, softdrinks, and some snacks as well.

Yes, we carry spin tackle and lures. We'll bring to the trip in case you want to give it a shot. No worries.

Our reservations are processed immediately, you will get your booking confirmation in the email you provide in just minutes.

Availability on this website is accurate, up to date and can be automatically checked prior to processing your reservation on the Tour Details page. Please insert your tour date and total number of travelers. Availability will be automatically confirmed. From this step you are invited to continue with your reservation process.

CozumelFlyFishing.Net can only be booked online. It is recommended you pre book your tour to avoid disappointment as this is a very popular destination and can be sold out early.
