Capt Erwin Westby grew up in a small fishing village (placencia). He began fishing commercially at the early age of 15, to pay his way through school in Belize which led him to pursue being an international captain. He studied in Texas at the US coastguard school (Hudson Marine) where he obtained his 100 tonnes license, after which he started working on private yachts and became captain of a 61 viking. Traveled the world and did many fishing tournaments, now back home to where it all started!!

The captain was very knowledgeable and a true fly fishing guru, it was just a tuff day and the fish weren’t bighting, lots of followers not many takers.
