Location: Northeast Caye, Placencia, Belize.

Fishery: Legendary Belizean permit guide Lincoln Westby’s passion for permit has led him to assemble some of the best guides in the country to take you down “permit alley” and help you experience the magic of permit fishing in Belize. Belize is famous for its number of permit and in-turn its number of shots at permit. Most of which will be at tailing fish on the beautiful pancake flats which are an extremely short boat run from the lodge, and a rather far run from elsewhere. So it’s safe to say that your guides will have you fishing unpressured flats and fish. Most of the fishing is done from the skiff while there may be some opportune wading sessions.

Accomodations: The lodge is perfectly balanced as comfortable without distraction. The design foundation is the ideal mindset of the permit angler coming to Belize, providing the atmosphere to both focus and relax at the same time.
