There is nothing quite like a great “fish story” that includes tales of adventure, travel and discovery. And while a good story is fun to hear, it’s always better when you have you a handful of amazing photos as well. There is no doubt that photography today is the new universal language, and many anglers have discovered the fun, creative possibilities of making memorable images over the course of their fishing trip. Nowadays, cameras are everywhere, and the ability to photograph your own adventures has never been easier. That said, the ability to shoot a photo does not mean that you’re guaranteed to capture good photos each and every time. If you’ve been thinking about taking your photography skills to another level in order to have your fishing memories captured in a way that truly showcases the beauty and excitement of the destinations that you visit, then consider signing up for Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures’ upcoming Cuba Fly Fishing Photography Workshop, happening October 14-25, 2017 in Playa Larga, Cuba. 


This hands-on, adventure-filled outdoor and fishing photography workshop is your chance to learn basic to intermediate photography skills from some of the most accomplished photographers and instructors in the industry. Learn to see your images and composition better, sharpen your camera technical skills, and set lose your creative drive while learning and photographing alongside our highly accomplished team of adventure angling photographers.

Whether you've just purchased your first camera and are wondering "what all those buttons are for,” or you’re a seasoned amateur-to-intermediate shooter wanting to make the most of your fishing and travel photography, this workshop will advance your skill level and improve your photos in the field. The workshop includes four days of guided fishing on the flats of Las Salinas in the famous Bay of Pigs region of Cuba. Anglers can expect to fish primarily to bonefish with possibilities for other marine species like permit, tarpon, snook, jacks, and barracuda. The flats of Las Salinas are a terrific area for wade fishing, so wading boots are highly recommended.

We’ve created a curriculum for this photo course that provides you with the necessary tools to create great images and truly “up” your photography game. In this immersive, eleven-day workshop, participating photographers will have daily detailed instructional lesson plans applied directly from the classroom to the field. Our pros will work alongside each participant, helping you to grow creatively with every shot. We've constructed a learning experience built around real-time scenarios to help you learn to anticipate and capture something special. This workshop will absolutely take your photography to the next level and will really help you make the most of your future fishing trips and adventure travel.


The eleven-day workshop also offers sufficient time in Havana to capture the sights and experience all that this fantastic city has to offer. After Havana you will have four days of fishing the flats of Las Salinas off the southern coast of Cuba, followed by a few days experiencing the Vinales Valley in Pinar del Rio Province. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Vinales Valley is famous for the country’s classic tobacco farming techniques and methods, situated in one of the most unique and beautiful valleys in all of Cuba.
