Isla De La Juventud, Cuba

The Isle of Youth as it is affectionately known is one of the most remote, idyllic locations in the Caribbean with some of the best flats Tarpon fishing in the world. Fly Odyssey has been hosting group trips every year to IDJ for nearly a decade, allowing you to fish very unpressured waters to Tarpon in excess of 100lb’s.

From the luxury and comfort your livaboard, the experience explores the remote waters between the Isle of Youth and Cayo Largo throughout the Canarreos Archipelago. This area is beyond the reach of any land-based operations and the tarpon fishing here is simply immense with big numbers of shots at fish daily in the 15-50lb range. Combine this with some outstanding bonefish and permit fishing and you have a fantastic saltwater fly fishing destination
