One of our favourite fly fishing operations in Mexico is Grand Slam Lodge, situated on Ascension Bay with access to endless flats hosting some of the biggest permit in the world. Enormous schools of bonefish along with baby tarpon and snook on hand too it forms one of the world’s best places to go for a Grand Slam or Super Slam. With all these fish around, it is evident why GSL’s wall of fame is filled with so many delighted Grand Slam anglers. It fishes all year round with prime time being February to early July and then again October to early December.

GrandSlam Lodge, Mexico

The Mayan Riviera has long since been a winter sun spot and as it is easily accessed from the UK by direct flights on British Airways makes it perfect for break from the monotony of the UKs dreary January weather. Mexico was one of the very first areas to be opened up for saltwater fishing in the late 1960’s. As the fishery up and down the coast is prolific with possibilities to catch all the major grand slam species it is the perfect destination to cut your teeth in the salt or combine a family holiday with some bonefishing. Mexico is also famous for its permit fishing, so if this species is on your hit list or has already got under your skin then Mexico will give you an excellent charge to land one of these black finned devils.

The lodge is on a narrow, palm tree-studded strip facing the Caribbean on one side with the lagoon lapping on the other side. As such, you get great sea views plus easy access to Ascension Bay from the lagoon dock. You can swim in the warm sandy waters by the lodge or snorkel over the nearby coral areas. You can opt for the swimming pool; the pool butlers will deliver drinks to your lounge chair there too.
