The Biosphere Reserve of "Los Petenes" is a vast system of mangrove, wetlands and turtle grass flats. Constant streams of fresh water from the springs flow to the salty gulf making it the perfect brackish waters for juvenile Tarpon (5-20 pounds), Snook, Snapper, Jacks and Barracudda; all in a few feet of water.

Twenty five foot Mexican panga boats are perfectly outfitted with flat carpeted floor and casting deck, rod holders, stocked coolers and brand new 60HP Yamaha motors. Patient searching is required to locate fish, the guide quickly positions the boat to be able to make an accurate presentation. Tension builds as the Tarpon tracks your fly. With a flash they eat and you strip set to bury the hook in their bony mouth. In a flash the water in front of the boat erupts as the Tarpon goes airborne! Hang on and welcome to Tarpon Town!
