Mood: Suicide Hot line ... please hold

We used to fish off the rocks in La Mision years ago... using fresh water gear...

We would only catch "perch" and they were small.. but, would give a good tug on 8 lb test... my Dad started me on catch and release way back in the 50's....

Keep only what you eat... and I don't like fish... to eat... go figure...

But, it is one of the most fun things to do... be outside wetting a line ...

I am familiar somewhat with flyfishing in baja as I belong to a club of flyfisherman and have brought groups down in the past.

It's a growing field but it's limited in it's application to baja fishing. Only a handful of species are worth pursuing this way. Requires skills that most people don't want to bother learning. Costs more to equip yourself than standard fishing. Is usually less successful in catching fish than other methods (ever try to corbina with a fly? It's a major achievement. But with fresh dead bait - no problem).

These are just some reasons.

P.S. Dennis is right that most flyfisherman exhaust their fish by not forcing the issue. I witnessed that with tuna.


I apologize to bring this up but at least 80% of what you wrote is mis-information. Please inform yourself. For once I agree with mtgoat read what was written there, its a growing sector of the sport, gear has changed o LOT since you're used it, there are scores of species to catch here in the SOC, and geeze i don't have the time to nitpick but go visit your local flyshop again and get informed, you will be pleasantly surprized.

better yet right now visit this site:

Wanna bet?

Please do 'nitpick'. Instead of painting with a broad brush please address the 80% that is wrong.

Oh, I don't disagree that it's a growing sector. It's been growing for decades. But it will never be the major part of baja sportfishing. I will stand by that.

How many flyfishermen on this board?

You know what. Flyfishing is not even the dominant form of fishing in Alaska, which is far more suitable for the sport.

And don't patronize me. I don't like it.

Skipjack makes a good point. The Alaska comparison is spot on. High quality, yet relatively easy fly fishing is wide spread up there. They manage their fisheries very well also. Not quite that way in present day Baja...particularly if you're talking shore fishing.
It is true that the fly fishing sector of Baja sport fishing has grown over the years. But I have to assume it's still only a small fraction of the total.
Is fly fishing actually growing as a whole? Not many kids getting involved it seems.
