43 miles off the northern coast of Honduras lies an angler's dream. The Bay Islands of Guanaja, with it's rich local fishing history, is quickly being recognized as a fly fishing paradise.

Catch and release is bringing sustainability through the tourism dollar that the island hasn't seen since the massive devastation caused by Hurricane Mitch in 1998. For centuries local fisherman have been harvesting fish that they're now learning to protect for the betterment of the island.

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
