Belize Bonefish: best season for chasing the grey ghost

Posted by yellowdog on Sep 6, 2019 1:25:00 PM

Belize is known for warm hospitality, a massive barrier reef, and miles of saltwater flats. On these flats cruise a prized gamefish of the saltwater flats angler...the bonefish. Sleek and fast, it is possible the bonefish was created purely for the saltwater angler. 

Belize has some of the best waters in the world for saltwater fly fishing. The country's coastline is protected by a barrier reef that runs the length of the country and is the second largest reef system in the world, the largest being Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. A tropical climate with very little temperature fluctuation and a seemingly endless expanse of flats running the length of the country, Belize is a bonefish paradise. Anglers venturing south to experience the diverse Belize fly fishing opportunities will most likely be met with exceptional bonefishing.

DTX, Sharkwave, Perception, Wonderline, HD Power. No, these are not the names of accessories to add horsepower to a souped-up Camaro. These are models of popular fly lines.

Bahamas: Fall Season is High on Fishing Options

Posted by yellowdog on Aug 16, 2019 9:22:08 AM

Is the fall season really the new spring in the Bahamas? For anglers who have been fishing the autumn season here for years, they hope the secret remains so. Or, at least they might hope a few hurricanes pass through and keep the exciting options for fall fly fishing in the Bahamas still off the radar. However, hurricanes are rare in the Bahamas and at Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures we like to share our worldly knowledge of fly-fishing travel.

Spring is a popular time in the Bahamas—in the U.S. people are excited to get away after a long winter, the winds can be relatively calm and tides are consistently favorable for fishing. Like spring, fall in the Bahamas features consistent tides and winds. For anglers this is a good thing, plus since the summer season is the least busy season of the year, the flats have been relatively absent of anglers, kayakers and beach-goers. If this sounds intriguing, contact Yellow Dog’s Bahamas Program Director Doug McKnight and he can fill you in on a secure line.

Or, if you need more information, here are some reasons to contact Doug to plan a Bahamas fall fly fishing trip.

Top 7 Bahamas Family Friendly Fly Fishing Trips

Posted by yellowdog on Aug 8, 2019 4:24:12 PM

There is always time to think about the next great family vacation

The Bahamas is blessed with a variety of fly fishing lodges. Many of these lodges are ideally suited to cater to anglers and non anglers. If you’re trying to plan an adventure that will please everyone involved, then we’re here to help.

Here at Yellow Dog, we actually rank and rate each of our destinations based on exactly how “family-friendly” they are, taking into consideration such factors as the availability of non-angling activities, specific programs and services for non-anglers, separate non-angler rates, and more. We combine all of this information with the realities of exactly how good and how diverse the fishing is as well. In the end, we’re able to offer a number of lodge and destination options that can easily cater to a mixed angling / non-angling couple, while at the same time offering a great overall fishing experience.

Here are our Top 7 Bahamas Family Friendly Fly Fishing Trips
