Blue Horizon Lodge

Take the Trip of a Lifetime to Belize

Founded in 1997 by legendary Belizean fly fishing guide Lincoln Westby, Blue Horizon Fly Fishing operates inside the protected waters of the South Water Caye Marine Reserve, in an area known as “Permit Alley”. This epicenter of the flats fishing is known as the finest permit fishing in the Caribbean, attracting anglers from around the world to our fabled flats.

Over the years, Lincoln and the guides he has trained himself, have developed into some of the most knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and fun guides to fish with in Belize. With literally thousands of permit, bonefish, and tarpon landed over the years, you can’t go wrong when you book a day, or a week, or more with Blue Horizon Fly Fishing. We offer half day and full day trip options from Hopkins, Placencia, and the surrounding cayes.

If you are looking for a dedicated fishing vacation, then you’ll love our newly remodeled and rebuilt Blue Horizon Lodge. For decades, Blue Horizon Lodge was known as ‘THE’ destination for hardcore permit anglers attempting to catch their 1st or 100th permit. With the rebuild of the lodge, we retain the title of the “Best Permit Fishing in Belize”. The lodge is located on the exact same footprint that Lincoln established his original lodge those many years ago, to maximize being on the flats during the best tides, with the best guides, during the best times of the day.

The Fishing

The vast majority of anglers come to Southern Belize to pursue permit. Permit are plentiful and are found on the pancake flats and the outer cayes of “Permit Alley”. You can expect plenty of shots at 5-20 pound permit on any given day. There are few places in the world you can expect to have more shots at permit.

While the area is most well known for the permit, there are impressive numbers of bonefish. The most common place to see bonefish is on the flats near the cayes or on select reef flats. On an average day on the flats, any time of year, you will see and fish to schools of bonefish in the 2-5 pound range.

Tarpon are present in the fishery throughout the year, in select channels and protected island lagoons. The tarpon migration is generally from late April through August in this part of Belize, with the channels and cayes in the South Water Caye Marine Reserve getting robust schools of tarpon during the migration.
