Saltwater Fly Fishing in Mexico: Affordable Adventures in the Yucatan, the Sea of Cortez, and Mexico's Pacific Coast Waters
(A multi-media presentation by Kirston Koths and Bob Marshak of Shooting Line Productions)
Whether you are a die-hard bonefish stalker or a trout bum with a curiosity for trying something new, our December presentation on fly fishing Mexico will have something for everyone. From inshore species you can manage with a 7 wt., to flats fishing with an 8 wt., to blue-water fishing with a 14 wt., this talk will cover it all.
Kirston Koths and Bob Marshak, wide-ranging fly-fishing aficionados and DVFF members, will trace the exciting transition from trout and steelhead fishing to sight-fishing for bonefish and tarpon and will even explore the challenging frontiers of fly fishing for marlin in blue water. This presentation will, if nothing else, introduce you to the cornucopia of saltwater species that can be caught on a fly in Mexico. From fish you may know about -- bonefish, baby tarpon, jacks, dorado, and permit, to those you've maybe never even heard of -- broomtail grouper, roosterfish, pompano, and corvina. And forget about the sky-high Alaskan lodge prices. From Ascension Bay to Campeche, to Los Barriles and Magdalena Bay, these trips are relatively close-by and affordable. Many of the techniques Bob and Kirston will describe are also applicable to boat-fishing in the San Francisco Bay delta or surf-zone fly fishing on our local beaches. Put this talk on your calendar!
Kirston and Bob are the founders of Shooting Line Productions, a company dedicated to the documentation of fly fishing destinations, worldwide. They have had many feature articles published in California Fly Fisher, CATCH Magazine, Northwest Fly Fishing, and Southwest Fly Fishing, where their article about fishing Magdalena Bay on Baja's Pacific coast recently appeared. Their Shooting Line Production talks are illustrated with colorful still photos and are peppered with tightly edited music videos, including shots of fighting all the major Mexican saltwater species, and even rare footage of surface-feeding marlin.
