Guide Flies Belize Grand Slam Flats Kits *NEW for 2021*
The fertile Caribbean waters of Belize are home to some of the world's biggest and most challenging Permit. In between taking shots at Permit, anglers can work on filling a coveted "Grand Slam" with abundant populations of hungry Bonefish and epic Tarpon migrations.
There is no harder earned trophy on the flats than landing a Permit on a fly rod. It's what got us into the fly business and this is what we live for. Our team has decades of experience guiding, outfitting, and casting at these elusive fish from Mexico to our home Island, Guanaja. We know the importance of matching the crabs to the bottom and designing heavy Permit flies that can still hit the water with stealth.
The angler is in control of the cast, retrieve and hook set. We can't help you there, but we do guarantee that you have the best flies you could possibly want to show that Permit of a lifetime when he goes tail's-up over your fly!
Our reputation for quality flats flies has made Guide Flies the preferred permit flies by many lodges including the world-famous Tarpon Caye Lodge in Placencia. These exclusive guide designed flats flies are now available for the first time in our signature Belize Grand Slam Flats Fly Kits.
Most angler's cringe at the thought of having to hunt down the exact right flies online and hope they are tied on decent hooks or have weed guards. Guide Flies ensures success by only using the finest quality hooks from Tiemco, Daiichi, and Gamakatsu. All of our patterns are tested on the most challenging flats and produce violent grabs from permit, shot after shot. We choose the flies for each kit so you can focus on practicing your double haul and not trout setting when the moment of truth comes!
Dave McKenna will personally hand select each kit, so if you need a particular color or have a special request, leave a note at checkout or send us an email and we'll do our best to customize your kit! We can select heavier or lighter flies if you let us know.
Guide's Flies Belize Kits Include 12, 24, or 60 flats flies with a custom selection for your targeted species. Choose from a Belize Permit Kit, Belize Bonefish Kit, or a Belize Grand Slam Kit to target Permit, Bonefish, and Tarpon.
