Fly Fishing in the Turks & Caicos
flats is one of the angling methods that use an artificial fly to catch fish. The fly is cast using a fly rod, reel and specialized weighted line. Casting a nearly weightless fly or “lure” requires casting techniques significantly different from other forms of casting. Fly fishermen use hand-tied flies that resemble natural invertebrates, baitfish, other food organisms, or “lures” to provoke the fish to strike. Fly fishing is one of the better methods for approaching bonefish, snook and tarpon as these fish species are easily spooked by the smallest movements and quietest sounds.
What to bring
We provide basic cast spinning rods, but we welcome you to bring your own fly fishing or spinning gear if you prefer. for fly fishing, we usually use 8-9 weight rods and lure flies that resemble shrimp, crab, and juvenile fishWe highly recommend you wear wading boots or similar gear to protect your feet from the rocky shallow flats. long-sleeve moisture wicking shirts, shaded caps and sunglasses are also highly encouraged for uv protection.
