Fly Fishing Report: The Rio Grande River

June 18, 2014
Author: Will Rice

Trouts Fly Fishing just wrapped up our annual hosted trip to the Rio Grande River.  This trip has proven to be a great fly fishing adventure in the past and this year it was no exception.

The big question on everyone’s mind as we packed up our gear and headed out the door: with the abnormally high flows this year across the state, what was the river going to look like and more importantly… would we find the bugs?

Out of Office Reply - a kick off to my Key West adventure

I felt a certain level of superiority as I sat on the plane awaiting takeoff.  Maybe it was due to the fact I was sitting in first class (a benefit of waiting until the last minute to book your flight, when the price difference between coach and first class is $100), or perhaps is was the fact that I was headed for a 5 day run of tarpon fishing out of Key West.  Ah yes, this is most likely the culprit of my current state of mind. 

Looking around the plane, I feel certain that nobody around me (other than my travel and fishing companion) is destined for the kind of toils and adventures I’m in store for.  It slowly starts to sink in, my office for the next 5 days: extensive ocean flats.  Our targeted prey: large migratory tarpon, resident permit, and maybe the occasional bonefish.  Obligations for the next week: eat, sleep, fish, repeat.

As you may know, international destination travel is a pretty big piece of the puzzle here at Trouts Fly Fishing.  This year, the shop is sending our team to the ends of the earth in pursuit of new species and fishing experiences.

Cody Hoeckelberg will be breaking out his passport once again and this time he is heading south of the border.  He’ll be spending a week in early June exploring areas around Cancun and the Yucatan Peninsula.  Here is how the trip is shaping up.

Fly Fishing Report: Whipray Caye Belize

I could see the big tail standing straight up out of the water from almost a quarter mile away.  The fish had to be huge.

“You see the fish now?” asked Julian Cabral, our guide and host at the Whipray Caye Lodge in Southern Belize.

“I can see it,” I said.  I could feel my heart rate picking up already.  I tried to take a deep breath.
