An easy style to learn recommended for beginners since it gives
the fisherman ease and swiftness while at the same time it is
easy to operate even in the most difficult conditions. Fishing
rods between six and seven and a half feet and use jig type
lures special for this type of fishing, in white, yellow, green
It is the most difficult to learn. This style combines hunting
ability and capturing techniques and fights with light fishing
rods. The bait (fly) imitates a bonefish catch and it is made
from either natural or synthetic material. The lures (flies) are
light but heavy enough to sink quickly to the bottom, where this
species usually feeds. Fly fishing is different to other
technique in that a relatively heavy wire is used which thrusts
the lure into the air almost quite close to the fish; 15 to 20
meters of wire have a higher weight than the lead used in other
techniques. This method demands special mastering when making a
long cast and presenting the fly in a natural way without
scaring the fish away.
For Los Roques it is recommended rods 8wt and 9wt. In regards to
the bait the following are the best: Pink Puff, The horror, crab
patterns, Crazy Charlie, Chico Fernandez Especial, Clouser
Minnows, all in sizes 4 and 6.
