Permit Quest Masterclass for Fly Tying with Dione Roberts

Reel Women Fly Fishing Adventures & Reel Belize 7th Annual Permit Quest Masterclass for Fly Tying with Dione Roberts

This is one of our most popular trips! Palometa or Permit are one of the most elusive fish— and landing one is something anglers put great effort into pursuing. Belize has a large population of Permit and we regularly see schools on the flats around Ambergris Caye as well as singles tailing. Combine these odds with daily clinics from Lori-Ann and our phenomenal English speaking guide team… …join us to land your Permit!

Five days of guided fishing and seven nights will introduce you to other fly fishing fanatical women who love the sport. You’ll leave with some life-long friendships and be a better angler after clinics with our team and probably a couple of clinics put on by Permit while on the flats for 5 days!

This trip is open to any level of fly-fishing. Come join the fun!

Permit Quest  Masterclass for Fly Tying with Dione Roberts

Ms. Dione Roberts is a Master Angler and Tyer from Edinburgh, Scotland. She has attended all the Permit Quests!

Dione fishes all around the world and has a special affection for the flats of Ambergris Caye.  She fishes in November with our SLAM and both weeks of Permit Quest.

Dione will be offering her Masterclass for Fly Tying. There is nothing more thrilling than landing a fish in the salt on your own fly!

The course can be tailored for beginners or experienced Fly Tyers. Starting out with a “Gotcha” or “Christmas Island Special” fly for bones/permit and “tarpon bunnies” – easy to tie and tarpon love them.

The main objectives:

  1. How to attach the thread.
  2. How to do neat thread wraps
  3. How to hold materials so you can tie them in
  4. How materials work in a fly
  5. How to finish a fly

Dione is supplying vices and to make it more productive she will have hooks with dumb bell/shain eyes already attached. She will also have her program on the TV screen from her camera so all can see what she is demonstrating.

There is a field trip planned for the search of odd materials/things she has found in the shops in San Pedro.

Add this to your Permit Quest package! The Permit Quest Masterclass is $200.00 US per person.

A great deal – tie up your own flies with confidence and go fishing.

Fun times!

Permit forever.

Pelican Reef Villas offers nothing but the best in relaxation and services. After a hard day on the flats, you’ll be ready to enjoy the pool bar, beach hammocks or lounge chairs near the pool. If you’d like to keep exploring, take a dip off the 350-foot pier, grab paddleboards, sea kayaks or bikes to explore the ocean or San Pedro itself; all included in your package. Wireless internet is included, and the team can assist with any print/copy/fax needs if you must do some work.
Reel Belize Fly Fishing Adventures accommodates our guests in the two or three bedroom suites at Pelican Reef. You’ll have your own room and bathroom but share a common kitchen and sitting area.

Before departure each day you’ll choose a breakfast entrée from our chefs, Delcia and Norma. Lunch will be packed and ready for you on the water. At dinner, our chefs, Delcia and Norma will be in daily to cook and serve Belizian style dinners. Rum and beer is provided. If you prefer wine or hard alcohol we can make arrangements for any requested items you’d like to purchase.

Fly into Belize City and take a short 16 minute flight to San Pedro. We’ll pick you up at the airport and take care of everything from there. Flights are offered by Tropic Air and Maya Island Air between Belize City and San Pedro.
