Our Boats

We have two custom flats fishing boats, the Tarponator and the Bonecrusher. Both are 18’ custom Pangas with poling platforms and casting decks. We also have a 23’ Panga with greater passenger capacity for our spin casting and sightseeing adventures.


We use quality fly rods and reels from Sage, Orvis, Redington, and Lamson. We mostly utilize 8 weight rods and line but have rods from 7 weight to 9 weight for our clients.

We have spin rods and reels from Shakespeare, Penn and other known brands.

We generally tie our own leaders but if you bring your own equipment, pre-made tapered leaders work well.


At Cancun Fly Guides, we are avid fly tiers. However, many of our clients prefer to bring their own flies. Captain Edwin Patron has worked closely with Discountflies Online Fly Shop and has specifically chosen a package of his favorite Isla Blanca flies that work well for a variety of fish and fishing situations. Please follow the link below to connect directly with Discountflies Online Fly Shop. We recommend the following flies for Isla Blanca:

Crazy Charlie, Sizes 4-8, pink, white, tan, lightly weighted
Gotcha’s, Sizes 4-8, pink, white, tan, lightly weighted

Rag Head Crabs, Sizes 4-8, tan with flash, chartreuse thread, lightly weighted
Del’s Merkin Crab, Sizes 4-8, tan with flash, chartreuse thread, lightly weighted

Generally, most Permit crab patterns will work if a neutral color

Tarpon Toad, size 2/0 – 2, black/red, red/white
Tarpon Cockroach, size 2/0 – 2, brown/black
Seaducer, size 2/0 – 2, red/white
Tarpon Bunny, 2/0 – 2 purple/black, red/black, chartreuse/white
Lefty’s Deceiver, 2/0 -2, red/white, chartreuse/white

We have found that tarpon/snook flies with eyes perform better than those flies without
