– Tides play an important part
of how the flats fish in Honduras. Higher tides associated with the
full and new moons mean deeper water and often there are more permit
found on the flat instead of around the deeper edges. If there is some
wind to push these tides a little deeper, you’ll have landed in
permit heaven! These same higher tides make it more difficult to spot
bonefish unless they are tailing. Lower tides make it easier to spot
those bones, but also easier for them to spot you. The lower tides also
push the tarpon out of the depths of the mangroves and it into the deeper
holes where they are fishable.

Roatan, Honduras Fly Fishing Report 1.10.07
Weather on Roatan was fantastic the first few weeks of December 2006!
Temperatures were in the 80's and easterly trade winds brought prime
conditions to the flats. Angler Ben Khan from England was able to take
advantage of this and land his first permit of about 10 lbs along with
numerous bonefish. Day fisherman Eric and Lars Lider also joined in
fun and boated a 40 lb. tarpon from the lagoons. Fishing was excellent
with many shots at both permit and bonefish, not to mention the jacks
The week of Christmas was beautiful with calmer seas and bright skies.
Tony Hughey from Washington, D.C. was able to take advantage and landed
many bonefish up to 6 lbs. A cold front arrived on the 27th and brought
cooler temps, which slowed the fishing at the end of the year.
The New Year has been gorgeous! Temps are back in the 80's and the easterly
trade winds are back. These winds are pushing more water on to the flats
and the permit are loving it! Many schools of tailing fish are receiving
