For the purists out there, Los Barriles has many flyfishing opportunities to be capitalised on with many species falling to the fly.

While several reef species will take a fly, there is one fish in particular that attracts the dedicated fly fisherman – the mighty Rooster. These insane powerhouses can push close to triple digits and can be found in very shallow water – in fact we’ve seen them nearly beach themselves right on the shoreline.

For the best odds, we’ll drift right on the edge of the reef, quietly floating along and working the boundary. The Roosters will be doing exactly the same thing, patrolling the parameters for baitfish – usually green jacks.

The smaller Roosterfish up to 25lbs tend to travel in shoals of five to ten, while the larger units are usually hunting alone or in pairs.

While it’s a challenging task to set yourself, flyfishing for Roosterfish is certainly a very achievable goal for the dedicated fishermen. Nothing will be as rewarding when it finally bites, and no other victory will be as hard fought!

Aside Roosterfish, other very notable mentions go to Crevalle Jacks, Dorado and the delicious Blackblotch Pompano of which there is also a good chance of in the same spots.

While the boat certainly gives you access to the highest traffic spots maximising your odds of landing one of these incredible fish, casting from the shore should certainly not be written off!

As mentioned above we have seen huge Roosters in just a couple feet of water right next to the shoreline. Predatory fish can also regularly be seen hitting bait balls just 30 to 50 feet off the beach. There is plenty of opportunity to work the reef and surrounding sandy bottomed beachline.
