Daniel Cabral's Fly Fishing

Placencia Road
Placencia, Belize

If you’re visiting Belize and want to enjoy some world-class fly fishing, congratulations – you’ve come to the right place! If you want to take the country’s famous shallow-water bite to the next level, book a trip with Daniel Cabral’s Fly Fishing and test your skills against a real who’s who of inshore gamefish.

The flats around Placencia are legendary among ambitious fly fishers. You can hook into Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, and Snook in these warm waters – all the makings of an IGFA Super Grand Slam! Placencia has produced more than one IGFA hall of famer in the past, and Capt. Daniel will pull out all the stops if you want to add your name to the list.

If you’re more interested in the experience than the record books, you won’t find a more beautiful setting to wet a line. Cruise the white sandy flats, sighting fish from far off through crystal-clear waters. This is the archetypal Caribbean paradise and an unforgettable place to spend the day.

Whether you’re an idle angler or a fly fishing fanatic, you can’t go wrong with Capt. Daniel’s 23’ skiff. Flat bottomed boats of this style are iconic in Belize’s sportfishing scene thanks to their shallow draft and stability. The boat has been regularly maintained since it was built in 2013 and makes for a safe, comfortable fishing platform for 1 or 2 guests.

Everything you need for the day is ready and waiting onboard, from quality fishing gear and a selection of Capt. Daniel’s favorite flies to snacks, drinks, and a tasty lunch to keep your energy up. Fishing licenses are also covered by the boat, so all you need to bring is the desire to catch big, hard-fighting fish!
