Blue Horizon Lodge is dedicated solely to fly fishing for permit. The fishing program at the lodge is unique in that it has been designed around the seasoned angler who is serious about catching permit on the fly. Through years of trial and error, the owner, Lincoln Westby, has developed and mastered permit-fishing techniques that consistently produce. This fact coupled with the lodges geographical location make Blue Horizon Lodge one of the best destinations available to get honest shots at permit on the fly.
Anglers can expect to get numerous realistic shots at permit on a daily basis. Something unique to Blue Horizon’s fishing program, and in contrast to traditional permit fishing, is spotting permit from the skiff, then stealthily slipping into the water, wading to within casting distance for optimal position, then casting to tailing fish. This type of fishing will blow your mind. There is no set fishing schedules at Blue Horizon Lodge; long fishing days are the norm. They fish by the tides, not the cook - but then you're not going there to eat.
A few resident schools of bonefish will keep things interesting and one the best tarpon fishing spots in this area is a ten minute boat ride from the lodge. Barracuda, jacks and snapper are abundant.

The lodge uses 3 panga-type skiffs, complete with casting platforms, each with plenty of horsepower to scoot anglers between fishing grounds. Most fishing at Blue Horizon Lodge is done the way it should be, on foot, over grand flats that are solid and easily waded.
