    Default Belize Questions

    I have been given the opportunity to go fishing in Belize. This will be my first trip to the salt and I need a little help. We will be fishing for bones and maybe permit, maybe baby tarpon if the stars align. I plan on taking 8 and 9 wt rods. Are tropical lines needed, or will my weight forward bass lines work? Any suggestions on fly patterns along with sizes? I am planning on getting a pair of flats boots, just not sure what style to get. Will the bootie style work, or should I get a pair of the wading boot style like the Simms flats boots?
    Looking forward to you folks' opinions.



    P.S. I have several of the Orvis old style Battenkill large arbor reels. Are these suitable for saltwater use?
