Default Havana good time - fly fishing Cuba

This is a dedicated thread for discussing article: Havana good time - fly fishing Cuba

Here is my report from a recent trip earlier this month to the Jardines de la Reina area of Cuba targeting bonefish, tarpon and the elusive permit.

Hi Paul,

It is great that you and your dad got to share this adventure. Looks like a wonderful trip and not as crowded as some other Bone locations. I sure can appreciate having a nice floating hotel to come back to at the end of the day. Are we going to see more pictures?

Frank

Paul: That was a great trip report of the Jardines de la Reina chain flats fishing and the floating hotel looks like a fine place for a fishing stay, thanks for sharing!

What a great trip that must have been! I'm traveling to Havana in April for an Educational/Cultural tour and would love to do some fly fishing. Are there any local guides or outfitters that might accommodate me for one day of fishing?

Thanks,

Wayne

Welcome to the forum Capt. Wayne.

I think it's still illegal to go to Cuba from here. I think I'd just do the Keys instead. Keep our money here. I would like to see the photos though.

I am sorry that I have not read your article. As much as I would love to head for some great inshore FF I will keep my money in the States and would much prefer to see others to do the same.

Paul, great article and thanks for sharing. If possible would love to see some close-ups of the three flies that did most of the catching.

Hi Dave,

Not sure I have a larger close up I can share right now but will have a look at home.

What I can tell you is that the tarpon fly is a chartreuse toad fly variant and the permit fly is the famous Avalon fly. Right this second the exact bonefish pattern escapes me - sorry.

Paul

Dan: I'm pretty sure you are correct about traveling to Cuba, maybe someday we will normalize relations with that country and travel will open back up.
