Catch your dinner with saltwater fly-fishing


The waters surrounding the Azores boast a veritable feast of fish and shark. Fish include the Atlantic Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Yellowfin, Big Eye Tuna, Swordfish, Blue Fish, Wahoo and Dorado, while shark species include Hammerheads, Six Gill and Mako. But the Blue Marlin hold a special place of honor--6 out of 10 fishing competition world records were set in the Azores, with the fishers in question catching impressively-sized Blue Marlin. The largest ever caught was 1,189 pounds!


Over the years, saltwater fly-fishing has been gaining in popularity in the Azores as it continues to catch on worldwide.  The combination of mellow weather conditions in the summer and an abundant supply of good-sized White Marlin make the Azorean waters an ideal fly-fishing experience.
