The Lodge




Description

Located in the middle of the best permit flats in the Belize, the Blue Horizon lodge is on the Northeast Caye, one of the islands in the Pelican Caye Range. It is approximately 18 miles southeast of the small sleepy village of Dangriga. The lodge is unique in that it has been designed around the seasoned angler who is serious about catching permit on the fly. Through years of trial and error, they have developed and mastered permit fishing techniques that consistently produce. This coupled with the lodge’s location make Blue Horizon Lodge one of the best destinations available to get honest shots at permit on the fly.

Anglers can expect to get numerous realistic shots at permit on a daily basis. Something unique to Blue Horizon’s fishing program, and in contrast to traditional permit fishing, is spotting permit from the skiff, then stealthily slipping into the water, wading to within casting distance for optimal position, then casting to tailing fish. There are no set fishing schedules at Blue Horizon Lodge; long fishing days are the norm. Here they fish by the tides, not the cook! A few resident schools of bonefish will keep things interesting and one of the best tarpon fishing locals in this area is a ten minute boat ride from the lodge. Barracuda, jacks and snapper are abundant. No long boat rides are encountered at Blue Horizon, the lodge sits virtually in the middle of 100’s of flats. The lodge uses 3 panga-type skiffs, complete with casting platforms, each with plenty of horsepower to run anglers between fishing grounds. Most fishing at Blue Horizon Lodge is on foot, over grand flats that are solid and easily waded.

The lodge at present features 3 private cabanas, each with its own shower and bathroom. The food is a combination of traditional Belizean dishes and fresh seafood. Fresh vegetables and fruit are incorporated in meals, as Dangriga is in the heart of Belize’s agricultural region. Plenty of cold Belikin beer is always available as well as soft drinks and fruit juice. Blue Horizon Lodge is rustic, but the permit fishing is as good as it gets. It is not suitable for non – fishers.


Client Comments:
"It might be a little rustic, but here, it's all about the permit. No time wasted getting to the flats, each day, it's all about the permit. Nowhere else like it". JW, Grateley
