If you fly fish, winter means it's time to head for warmer waters. We took a Beaverkill tip-action 7 and 10 weight to southern Mexico in search of some of the flats' most challenging fish.

Thanks to our hosts at Costa de Cocos Lodge in Xcalak, and fishing travel guru Brian Hodges of Double Haul Travel, we had a fantastic time, with multiple bonefish landed over 3 days of fishing. Despite some wind and rain showers, we managed to land a permit, some barracuda, some large mangrove snapper, and had shots at tarpon, huge jacks, and snook. Superb time had by all!
