Attention Anglers! I’m putting together a hosted trip for bonefish in the area off Los Roques Venezuela for June 2013. My good friend and fellow guide Emiliano went up there last year, and the photos and stories he came back with provided more than enough motivation for me to move this particular destination right up to the top of my list of must-do’s. The idea is to rent a couple of sailing yachts, complete with crew and chefs, and do a ten day trip with seven full days of fishing plus spectacular food, snorkeling, and scenery all the way. (Non fishing guests are welcome too) Cost is only $500 a day per person, and includes everything except a guide (since it is a hosted trip), but from what Emiliano tells me if you’ve got any fish spotting and casting skills at all you can do just fine on your own! We’ll make sure guides are available though, for anyone who wants one (even maybe just for the first couple of days until your eyes get turned on) and these run about another $175 a day per angler.
I’ve got ten total spots to fill and only three or four of those are left open at this time. Flights will need to be through Caracas to Los Roques, and I’ll be waiting for you when you get off the international flight so we can travel together from there on. Our plan is to board the yachts the same day we arrive, then sail through the night so as to get out to the fishing grounds and beautiful islands and beaches straight away.
We’ll determine the exact dates for the trip once the group is filled out so we make sure they work for everyone. Anybody interested shoot me an email right away; I don’t expect this deal to last long!
