FLY FISHING CUBA | Hosted by The River’s Edge Fly Shop


Have you ever wanted to Fly Fish Cuba?

Now is your chance! As some of you know from our recent evening event, we do have a hosted trip to Cuba and the Jardines de la Reina planned for the week of May 23-30, 2015. This trip is aboard the Tortuga houseboat, which is located in the heart of the area known as the “Gardens of the Queen.” We have selected this specific week due to the fact that it is a prime week for tarpon action! There are also bonefish and permit in the area, and we believe that overall this is the very best time of the season to fish this region.

This trip will be led and hosted by the owners of The River’s Edge fly shop along with a member from Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures here in Bozeman.  Yellow Dog will handle all logistics and details for the trip. Scientific Visas are going to be included in the package, and they are being arranged through the group, “Ocean Doctor.” This will allow everyone to travel and fish legally in Cuba.

Information and Cost

Package costs are $7,395.00 per person for a week aboard the Tortuga, which includes all flights from Cancun to Havana, all visa and visa processing fees, legal entry paperwork, and the full fishing and lodging package for the week. Again, the dates for the fishing package are May 23-29, 2015, which means that everyone will need to fly from Cancun to Havana on the morning of May 22, and return to Cancun on May 31.

We have a number of spots available for this specific week, and would be happy to talk with all of you in more detail about the trip!  Please feel free to contact us at any time at The River’s Edge Fly Shop, or contact Jim Klug at Yellow Dog Fly Fishing and we can answer any questions that you have.  We have already filled a number of these spots, and expect that this trip will book quickly once we begin promoting the week. If you have any interest at all, please let us know right away!

Additional Information

To help with the initial planning and consideration process, we have attaching some additional details about the Tortuga package and the fishing in the Jardines. Take a look below for more information and call or email us whenever it is convenient for you!
