Xcalak Flats Guide Flies Kit
The fertile Caribbean waters of Mexico's Yucatan coast are home to some of the world's biggest and most challenging schools of permit. Xcalak is quickly becoming one of the world's most popular permit destinations for its massive populations of trophy permit and the multi-shot days that permit anglers dream of.
There is no harder earned trophy on the flats than landing a permit on a fly rod. It's what got us into the fly business and this is what we live for. Our team has decades of experience guiding, outfitting, and casting at these elusive fish from these Mexican waters to our home Island, Guanaja. We know the importance of matching the crabs to the bottom and designing heavy permit flies that can still hit the water with stealth.
The angler is in control of the cast, retrieve and hook set. We can't help you there, but we do guarantee that you have the best flies you could possibly want to show that permit of a lifetime when he goes tail's-up over your fly!
Our reputation for quality flats flies has made Guide Flies the preferred permit flies of the world's most successful permit lodges. These exclusive, guide-designed flats flies are now available for the first time in our signature Xcalak Flats Fly Kits.
Most destination anglers cringe at the thought of having to hunt down the exact right flies online and hope they are tied on decent hooks or have weed guards. Guide Flies ensures success by only using the finest quality hooks from Umpqua, Daiichi, and Gamakatsu. All of our patterns are tested on the most challenging flats and produce violent grabs from permit, shot after shot. We choose the flies for each kit so you can focus on practicing your double haul and not trout setting when the moment of truth comes!
Dave McKenna will personally hand select each kit, so if you need a particular color or have a special request, leave a note at checkout or send us an email and we'll do our best to customize your kit! We can select heavier or lighter flies if you let us know.
Guide's Flies Xcalak Kits Include 12, 24, or 60 flats flies with a custom selection for your trip of a lifetime.
