Flip Pallot/Your Hosts


This man really needs no introduction........

Flip Pallot Saltwater Fly Fishing School

He’s been there. Done that. And not only gotten all the t-shirts, he’s been on a bunch of them too. That’s what happens when you’re a fishing legend – and there’s no other way to describe Flip Pallot.

Ever since the day he peeled off his banker’s suit and switched to Bermuda shorts, Flip’s been writing his own script in life. For 12 years he was in non-stop demand as a fishing guide and guru in Florida’s Keys and Glades. When a hurricane wiped him out, he switched rigs and founded Hell’s Bay Boatworks which continues to thrive today. Next it was TV stardom as host of the groundbreaking Walker’s Cay Chronicles. And, later, a turn as a best-selling author.

And every step of the way, Flip’s good humor, great insight and unparalleled passion for fishing have defined his success.


Your Instructors-

Flip Pallot and Brian Flechsig

Joining Flip will be the founder and owner of one of the largest fly fishing outfitters in the country, Brian Flechsig of Mad River Outfitters. Brian is the host of the Mad River Media series of instructional fly fishing videos, author, fly designer and a veteran instructor. Not to mention, of course, he's a world-class saltwater angler with over 30 years of experience. Brian and Flip began working together over 14 years ago when they filmed a mess of episodes of the Walker's Cay Chronicles together. A solid friendship was easily formed and the two men began teaching schools like this at various locations. They also conducted many trips together including their famous "Florida Sampler Trips". As Flip will tell you himself.......... "Brian is one of the best instructors in the fly fishing industry today and you will be glad to work with him."

The Mad River Outfitters/Flip Pallot Saltwater Fly Fishing School will be held in San Pedro- Ambergris Caye in Belize from Saturday, April 12th- Friday, April 18th. 2014.

Flip Pallot Saltwater Fly Fishing School

You will arrive on Saturday the 12th at the San Pedro Airport via Belize City and be escorted to the oceanfront Villa that Flip and Brian have rented for the school. You do need to arrange your airfare to Belize City and then over to San Pedro....but it's super easy. Belize City is served by American and Delta and we use Tropic Air for the quick jump over to the island. We will provide you exact details on how to do this. A valid U.S. Passport is required to enter Belize.

We will have a "meet and greet" dinner on the night of arrival and an overview of the week to come.

The next day will be spent in "classroom" with Brian and Flip with an emphasis on your fly casting skills.....which is the single most important component in your saltwater success. Classes will run from 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. so plenty of time before and after to relax, enjoy....or chase fish around the flats in front of the villa.

Day two will be spent with local guides chasing bonefish, tarpon and permit on the flats surrounding Ambergris Caye. After dinner will be a Q & A and discussion with Flip and Brian about your day.

Day three will be spent again in "classroom" with Brian and Flip and a variety of topics will be covered.  You will have the evening off to relax, socialize, go to town, or....fish the flats right in front of the villa

Days 4 and 5 will be spent again with local guides on the flats surrounding the island.

Day 4 will feature "classroom" Q & A after dinner with Brian and Flip and day 5 will feature the "graduation ceremony".

Ambergris Caye-


Site of the Flip Pallot Saltwater Fly Fishing SchoolAmbergris Caye was probably named by the pirates who frequented the island in the early 17th century. On shores sheltered by the Belize barrier reef, the pirates discovered a convenient hiding place and due to the abundance of Ambergris, an additional source of income. Ambergris, a form of whale excrement, was a critical ingredient for the manufacturing of perfume and fetched a good price in Europe.

Although it is now considered an island, Ambergris Caye is actually the southernmost tip of the Yucatan Peninsula. The region was ruled by the Maya from approximately 900 AD- 1400 AD. The Maya conducted extensive trade in the region and probably dug the narrow channel that now separates Ambergis Caye from the peninsula to facilitate access by canoe.

San Pedro, the main village on the island, was founded is 1848 by four families of Mestizo refugees who fled an insurgency in the Yucatan Peninsula. These settlers had been farmers and fishermen and provided food to the British landowners harvesting lumber in the area. Named for the patron saint of fishermen, Saint Peter, San Pedro began to grow and thrive. Coconuts were an important crop until the 1930's and at one time, there were a number of plantations on the island. The commercial harvest of lobster began in the 1920's and eventually led to the formation of fishing cooperatives in 1960.

The first tourists arrived in Ambergris Caye in late 1950's and the first hotel was built on the island in 1965. Commercial air travel began a few years later and the tourism industry grew from there. The first dive shop opened in 1970 and today travelers can explore the Hol Chan Marine Reserve off the southern tip of Ambergris Caye with a certified dive master and guide. San Pedro Town has a variety of fine restaurants and is host to visitors from all over the world. The fishing around Ambergris Caye is also a big draw. Some of the finest flats fishing in the world is minutes from the island. Tourism is now the foundation of the local economy and islanders are proud to share the beauty and hospitality of their home.




Flip and Brian have rented a private Villa for this School that is absolutely perfect for this purpose. Nice and comfortable rooms, large area for classrom presentations, large dining area......and fishable/wadeable flats right out the front door.

The villa is located approximately 4 miles South of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye.

We are sure that you will enjoy the accomodations and your time in Belize with Brian and Flip.
