Quite possibly the ultimate husband/wife vacation/fishing destination, The Cayman Islands is undoubtedly one of the nicest places I have ever visited. We stay at The Southern Cross Club on Little Cayman, which is truly exceptional; you can sit on the porch outside your cabin and watch bonefish tailing along the beach in front of you, along with tarpon rolling a little further out. I am going to let the pictures tell the story of the trip, but if you would like more information visit the anglers World Holidays website at: http://www.anglersworld.tv
Quite possibly one of the nicest fishing lodges I have stayed at.
The beachfront accommodation is exceptional, you can fish for bonefish right in front, so keep that fly rod rigged & ready!
Little Cayman from the air, note the cloudy patch of water, thats a ‘mud’, caused by a shoal of bonefish! You can also see the famous ‘Tarpon Lake’
There are excellent, wadeable flats all around the island. You can drive right around the island in less than 40-minutes, so whatever the wind direction you can quickly reach a comfortable flat to fish

All of the usual bonefish flies work, but it is advisable to have some with weed guards as many of the flats are covered in lush beds of eel grass. We saw permit, too, so make sure you include a few crab patterns.
Tarpon Lake is an amazing place to fish. It’s full of 5-15lb tarpon that following a hurricane have become land locked, its a fantastic place to catch tarpon on the fly
Access to the lake is via a boardwalk from which you can fish, but a small boat and guide are also available

The lake is full of dead trees, which makes playing and landing a tarpon even more of a challenge than usual!

Tarpon average 5-15lb; great sport on a 9wt

No fishing from ‘de dock mon’!
