Experienced saltwater anglers know the difference between a great trip and an expensive boat ride can often hinge on who is doing the guiding. We have succeeded in creating the workplace and the culture to attract and employ the best of the best in the region.
Our guides all speak English and are on the water over 300 days a year either guiding gringo fly anglers or fishing the commercial lobster season. Unlike some other lodges in the area that employ seasonal guides from other regions in Mexico, The Palometa Club hires the best and local independent contractors from Punta Allen that are, by definition, professional fly fishing guides. They pridefully run their own boats, are serious fly tiers, epic casters, calm instructors, and collectively have decades of experience hosting anglers from all over the world on Ascension Bay.
We hang our hat on not having a weak link on the guide staff – and anglers typically rotate throughout the roster of guides throughout the week. Of course all boats are crewed by TWO experienced guides (1:1 guide to angler ratio).
