Hello Karol,

I spent a couple of weeks in the Dominican Republic about 15 years ago and allthough my trip wasnt specifically for fishing, I can tell you that its certainly worth bringing a fly rod.

Most of the fishing I encountered was early morning and late evening beach fishing. The most action I had was with various spcies of Jack. Just walk the beach and keep an eye in the first 15 metres or so of the surf and look for any disturbance and it will allmost certainly be hunting jacks.

I saw in two bays, perfect bonefish habitat and the locals confirmed that bonefish were present when I showed them a picture of one. I think the local name for them is Macabe?? I didnt see any evidence myself though!

If you can hire a boat and a guide Im sure there will be plenty of offshore opportunities available though they will probably not be used to fly fishing techniques.

If I was to reccomend a fly selection I would choose small foam poppers in yellow or chartruse, a bright yellow crazie charlie, a yellow and chrartruse clouser minnow and perhaps a large deciever or two. And dont forget some shock tippet.

Good luck and have a great time.

Taff
