Sailfish in Guatemala

Guatemala Sailfish School

Every once in a while a special place is discovered…a place where the fishing is exceptional. The lodging and guides and boats are first class and the fishing…well, is just unbelievable. This place is Guatemala; I have fished this flyfishing mecca, and all I can say is Guatemala is one of a kind. For sheer numbers of sailfish it is the best place in the world. For the angler who is interested in honing his or her skills I highly recommend you attend one of The Sailfishing Schools. I am currently working with saltwater legend Jake Jordan and have fished worldwide with Jake and I can unequivocally say that this school is the best school for any angler wanting to learn how to catch billfish on a fly. We have over twelve years of schools behind us and every student has caught a sailfish on a fly during our schools.

The Fins 'N Feathers, Casa Viejo LodgeCasa Vieja Lodge

Casa Vieja Lodge is a large five star fishing lodge with a private pool and a large air conditioned dining room. Each of the 11 new air-conditioned guest rooms has a private tile bath. Casa Vieja Lodge is located in San Jose Guatemala, just a short five minute ride from the Sailfish Marina, where the Fins ‘N Feathers fleet is berthed. From the Guatemala City Airport the drive to Casa Vieja lodge is just one and a half hours through scenic Guatemala. The crew at the lodge: employees Freddy, Julian, Edgar, and Antonio are many of the original Fins 'N Feathers staff. This is truly a wonderful fishing lodge.

The SAILFISH SCHOOL includes the following

Round trip ground transportation from Guatemala City to the Casa Vieja Lodge in a new Mercedes van with an english speaking driver. Three nights Lodging in the luxurious Casa Vieja Lodge. The last night's lodging is either at the Casa Vieja Lodge or at the Marriott Hotel in Guatemala City. All meals are included three full days of flyfishing for Sailfish (one instructor and three or four students per boat). And the use of high quality flyrods & reels, and all of the flies and leaders you may need. I have a number of limited dates available in 2007 and 2008. Please call or email me for available dates.
