We found tarpon rolling in the creek mouths, the back country, the mangrove edges, the inner flats, and even a few along the outside flat edges. The one constant was floating lines, visually explosive takes, and spectacular acrobatics in the crystal clear waters of Campeche
For flies I would highly recommend any of the EP patterns, though it seemed olive and white with some flash was best (also great for snook), foam body toads and traditional body toads in chartreuse, chartreuse and yellow, and purple and black. And of course, poppers, which seemed particularly effective in the wee early hours of the day no matter the color!
Some of the flies that Drake used sucessfully on his trip.
This was my third time to Campeche and it won’t be long until I am back fishing again with my friends Alejandro, Pechuga, and Hollywood! Thanks for everything!
