Fishing in Belize

Geographically small but huge in diversity, Belize is somewhere you could be wading pristine flats in search of bonefish one day and trekking through jungles the next. With more than 40% of the country given protected status, this truly is a haven for nature lovers and, in particular, fisherman. Fly-fishing for permit in Belize is arguably more productive than anywhere else in the world, the tarpon fishing is excellent year-round and bonefish are here in numbers (if not huge sizes). Naturally, the opportunity of a flats grand slam is a realistic possibility. Add to that the excellent reef and deep sea fishing alongside some top-notch fishing lodges and you have a genuine fisherman’s paradise. Find out about the best Belize fishing lodges, guides and charters below or browse the map to find your desired location…
