Bonefish-Permit-Tarpon Fishing in Roatan Honduras

When I got to Roatan I had no intention of getting a guide to fish for Bonefish on the reef. After several days of using what I had read about being the most effective flys and fighting the wind to cast I realized I needed a guide.
By chance, Michael Bodden and I connected and booked a day on the water. Michael’s prices were very reasonable and he was accommodating to my needs.
Michael spent a portion of the first day teaching me how to alter my casting to effectively shoot line and gently set a fly on the water in 20 plus mile per hour winds. His techniques were unique to me (a steelhead fisherman). In a short time, Michael showed me how to spot bonefish and the proper stripping technique. He put me on bonefish and with his expert instruction I was able to hook 5 and land 4 bonefish!
I hired Michel two additional days to put me on Permit and Tarpon. Michael put me onto fish and nothing but my lack of skill kept me from catching Permit and Tarpon. Michael has an eye for fish like no other guide I have ever fished with.
Overall my experience was fantastic all three days. Michael and his staff made sure I was comfortable, had everything I needed and were great company. If you get the chance to go to flyfishing in Roatan, I highly suggest contacting Michael Bodden to hook you up.
Michael is the only fishing guide I promote on Roatan. I am a expat living on the island 13yrs GM at the hole in the wall and also east end divers.
I fished today with Michael and had a great time time in spite of the rain which it did most of the day. Starting out I told Micheal that I was not a very good flyfisher person as I did not cast well. Within the first 30 minutes of practice casting he had he me casting much further than i ever have been able to before. Michael is a very patient guide and was very considerate of my lack of skill. I still caught fish two of them being bone fish over 5 lbs. I have booked another trip with him later this week as I am verity impressed with his skill and knowledge as a guide and his patience as a instructor of bone fishing.
