I fly fished cozumel through Carlos Vega on Feb 14. It was my first time flats fishing, I would say I am an average fly caster at best. Fortunately we had a perfect weather day and I was able to catch 7 bonefish on the fly, an epic day.
I was torn when selecting a guide but finally settled on using Carlos as he was the easiest to contact and has perfect english. His operation is very well run and everything was as represented. Plenty food, water and beer. The guide tied a leader for me and provided the flies including multiple changes. He even hooked me up with some wading shoes he had stashed on the boat because he said my crocs wouldn't cut it.
I picked my day based on the weather, Carlos's main guide Enrique was already booked but he had another guide, Alfredo available. I was a little nervous but I couldn't have been happier with Alfredo. He was as intense at the end of the day as at the beginning. He wanted fish as bad as I did and he knew his stuff, never hesitated to change flys when we had refusals, and pretty good english.
I think I was pretty lucky that we found a cove late in the day with a couple large schools working this made my suspect casting less of an issue. It is important to understand that a large part of your success will depend on your personal casting ability. Also my wife rode along and enjoyed the scenery.
I am thrilled with my trip and Alfredo and plan on going again next year.
thank you Carlos!
