Fly Fishing in El Salvador

Fly Fishing in El Salvador is quite an adventure for fly fishermen around the globe. People who have experienced fishing in Patagonia, Alaska, and Canada then an adventure of Fly fishing awaits in this unexplored territory.

There have been a number of fly fishermen asking about the overall panorama along the Salvadoran coastline for fly fishing and luckily enough a few good men have traveled to San Salvador to explore the territory in person. As a surprise, the experience has been unbelievable and surreal in every aspect as skilled fly fishermen with an art in mastering trout and salmon casting their flies in estuary waters and the reef ecosystem end up reeling in a rooster fish or a spanish mackerel to name a few species. There is a wide variety of species to target such as snook, corvina, snapper, jack cravel, barracuda, and needlefish and this is when the adventurer takes on a larger dose of excitement. There are very few fly fishermen in El Salvador, but luckily enough travelers who have flown into El Salvador have brought their fly gear, and have taught Salvadorans about the beauty of the sport. There are several key points with abundant mangrove along the Salvadoran coastline to fly fish in calm estuary waters; Barra de Santiago, Estero de Jaltepeque, Bahia de Jiquilisco, and Barra Salada to name a few. For fly fishermen looking to use a heavier weight rod then there is also the ocean in proximity to the estuary to go and target roosterfish, skipjack tuna, yellowfin tuna, barracudas, wahoo, needle fish, and jack cravel and of course for more adventurous fly fishermen there is always the challenge of the wide open sea in search of mahi-mahi and sailfish.
