The best line here is the weight - forward,
floating line. A spare reel with intermediate sinking line can come in handy for deeper
bonefish. The lines should have a braided monofilament core-- perfect for fishing in the
tropics. This prevents the line from knotting up by keeping it stiffer in warm, tropical
An 812-ft tapered leader of 10-lb test will
work for most situations at Mango Creek Lodge. You should also bring along a spool of 10
or 12-lb tippet.
The best bonefish flies for Roatan are unweighted
and have weed guards to prevent them from snagging on the coral and turtle grass flats.
However, a few weighted flies may come in handy for deeper water or mudding fish.
