And the even better news is this: a half-hour ferry ride from Playa del Carmen brings you right to where you can begin the finest fly fishing adventure you’ll probably ever enjoy.

Hello … I’m Adolfo Vazquez and I’ve been fly fishing on Cozumel for forty years. And, for thirty-six of those years I, along with my team, some of whom are family members, have been making sure our VIP guests enjoy the very best day’s fishing they’ve ever experienced.

Just as we did for Bill and Steve from Texas …

"THANK YOU TRULY FOR THE FANTASTIC ADVENTURE"

Thank you truly for the fantastic adventure. Your expert guidance helped us bring in the best tarpon we’ve ever caught and those crazy jumpers really put on a great show

February 2019

As you probably know, tarpons are pretty elusive, but we have our fair share when they are in season. In fact, our lagoons team with fish all year round - unlike some areas of the Caribbean.

And we add a further dimension to your pleasure by supplying Orvis and Sage fishing tackle. So, if you haven’t brought your own fishing equipment, you’ll enjoy using these, as they are the very best you get your hands on and are a sheer joy to use.

and that’s world class fishing guides – which we ALSO supply.

But don’t just take my word for that. Read what two of our existing guests have taken the trouble to write. Many of our other guests are also like Robert and Theresa, returning time after time to fish our beautiful lagoons …

"ADOLFO IS A TERRIFIC FISHING GUIDE WITH EXCELLENT KNOWLEDGE OF LOCAL CONDITIONS"

"My wife and I have been fishing with Adolfo for nearly 12 years. He is such a terrific fishing guide on the flats with excellent knowledge of local conditions.

Every trip with "Chojon" has been memorable, and every year brings a new adventure."

I mentioned earlier some members of my team are actually family: that is my youngest son and my oldest grandson. All told, our team has more than eighty years of experience between them, helping good folks, like you, get the best out of their fly fishing adventure.

So I can say - without fear of contradiction - we are, by far, the most experienced team of fly fishing guides in the whole of Cozumel.

So we will certainly make your day one you’ll never forget.

"EXCELLENT GUIDING AND GENERAL ADVICE"

"I did want to say thank you and also how much we enjoyed our fishing recently -thanks to some excellent guiding and general advice!

We’ll see you guys this summer when we get back there."

February 2019

And it doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned fly fishing veteran or a complete rookie, because by being guided by my enthusiastic team means you’ll be setting yourself up for a truly memorable day, packed with plenty of new insights into the fascinating business of fly fishing.

"ADOLFO MAKES FLIES THAT BONEFISH WANT TO EAT"

"Adolfo continues to introduce me to new spots of the flats on each visit and his knowledge extends beyond the standard fly patterns - he makes flies that bonefish want to eat!"

And for us fisher folk, few pleasures compare with a day pitting your wits against the fish. So just imagine the thrill of all, when your own skill is reinforced by superb high end fishing tackle and the priceless advice from my highly experienced team.

And just picture the high regard your fishing buddies, back home, will hold you in when you tell them about the ones that didn’t get away – and then show them the photos as proof.

And here’s a tiny taster of what your experience of a lifetime will be like …

You’ll feel the excitement rising as your ferry from Playa del Carmen docks at the Ferry Pier on the island of Cozumel, because you’ll know you’re just about to start a great day’s fishing.

From the Ferry Pier it’s just a gentle stroll of a couple of blocks in a straight line to the ‘San Miguel Church’, where we are waiting to greet you.

Than after a short ride, we arrive at the marina, where our tiny fleet of three boats is moored.

A short trip then brings us to our fishing grounds – the three beautiful lagoons of Paso Balem, Rio de la Plata and Monte Cristo, located in the north of the island.

Then, if you haven’t brought your own fishing gear, you can enjoy using the world’s finest fishing tackle by Orvis and Sage.

Our main target is bonefish, which are plentiful all year round. And you can also catch snook and tarpon and permit fish, in season. Permit fish are only for experienced anglers, as they can be quite a handful to catch!

Once you’re all set, it won’t be long before your guide alerts you that the fish are coming your way. Then, after a short battle, you’ll get your day off to a flying start with the excitement of your first catch.

I hope you’ve brought your camera, because you’re bound to want to show those envious folks back home your very first catch!

Before long, you’ll be ready for a cold beer (or a soft drink or water) and, perhaps, a light snack, before you get down to pitting your wits against the fish, once again.

By the way, your drinks and snacks – as well as use of the Sage and Orvis fishing tackle and your fishing licence, lures and expertly tied flies – are all included.

Here is your program for your Fly Fishing Trip in Cozumel:

Aaron and his kids showing off the catch of the day in Cozumel.

Zachary and his tour guide showing their catch over the shallow waters of the island.

William starting his fly fishing tour with his guide.

  1. The first part of your day

    Book your Fishing Trip for 8am.

    Catch the 7am or 8am Ferry from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel.

  2. Next you will...

    Be in Cozumel in just 20 to 25 minutes. And the ride costs $6usd each way. No need to buy round trip tickets.

    Meet us two blocks down from the Ferry Pier at the San Miguel Church. Easy to find us, you´ll have directions in your Confirmation Email.

  3. Some minutes later

    We´ll be in the flats in 20 more minutes, around 8am.

    First we´ll wade the Flats for Bonefish. You´ll likely see large schools of 18 to 25 Bonefish each school. You will be fishing for Bonefish until around 11:30am.

  4. Then we stop for lunch

    And continue far inside the lagoons number 2 and 3. Laguna Montecristo and Laguna Rio de la Plata.

    You will go after Snook and baby Tarpon from around 12pm (noon) until around 3pm or 4pm. You will be fishing from the boat during this time.

  5. After that, all too soon

    Finally, on our way back to the Marina, we´ll stop by a Bay Beach to target Permit.

    This way you´ll have the chance to try your luck with 4 different species in one day of fishing.

    Once we are back in town, we´ll drop you off directly at the Pier to catch your Ferry back to Playa del Carmen.

You get all this – and much more for just...

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

Christopher holding in the water his catch after a sunny day in Cozumel.

Don’t you deserve the very best, too?

So why should you settle for anything less than a life crammed with wonderful experiences, such as the wonderful fishing trip we have here?

So why ignore this opportunity of a lifetime to enjoy the highest possible degree of fly fishing success, using the best tackle in the world and being mentored by the very best team of fly fishing guides in the whole area, who only feel they’ve had a good day’s fishing if YOU enjoy a superb day’s fishing.

Bad news …

I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but I have to warn you. You see, we are a small, friendly family outfit, which is both our great strength and our one weakness.

On the one hand, we offer a personal service second to none, but it also means we only have three boats, so we have very few slots available.

And that might be okay, if we just catered for the good folks coming on the ferry from Playa del Carmen, but we don’t.

You see – quite apart from the many folks vacationing right here on Cozumel island - there are about five cruise ships arriving here every single day of the week. And that adds up to about 20,000 cruise visitors disembarking every day.

Naturally many of these people are keen to take advantage of our superb fly fishing lagoons. And, of course, they all want to hire the very best crews.

Meaning our 3 boats get booked up pretty quickly…

Daniel holding outside the water one of the fish he caught during his fly fishing tour.

So you now have to come to a fast decision...

I don’t want you to miss out on a fishing trip of a lifetime, just because I failed to point out how severely limited our slots are.

But there is some good news: because you can check instantly to see if your preferred time and date are available. That’s because our web based booking area, is constantly updated in real time, so you can see at a glance if the slot you want is still vacant.

So what would be a smart move for you, right now?

A. Book a trip with one of the other fishing guides.

OR …

B. Easily check to see if your preferred time and date is available with us. And then - if it is – instantly secure your place on the fishing trip of a lifetime, before someone else takes it.

You know you want to join us, so my team and I are looking forward eagerly to making your day as our VIP guest truly memorable.

Why should the best be reserved for others and 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?

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 fishing trip.

Everything has a price. And, in our case, the limited slots we have available are the trade off for our legendary personal attention.

That means you should make your booking as soon as possible, otherwise you risk missing out on a fly fishing adventure of a lifetime.

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

"THANKS FOR THE GREAT TIME AND MANY OF YOUR HELPFUL HINTS"
