Blue Horizon / Thatch Cay Lodge


Thatch Caye is a very small private island located about 10 miles off the coast of Dangriga, Belize, Central America.

We are very excited about the permit fishing operation, Blue Horizon/Thatch Caye Resort, in Southern Belize. This saltwater resort is located on a private island dead-center in the middle of the best permit fishing in Belize, if not the world. The resort itself is perfect for non-anglers, with plenty of fun water-based activities, yet their Blue Horizon fly fishing program – headed by long-time, legendary permit guide Lincoln Westby – is designed for the most avid of permit anglers.

Unique in the area, Blue Horizon/Thatch Caye offers the best of both worlds – a small occupancy destination with all the comforts and accoutrements of a classic island resort that also has a world-class fly fishing guide service. Anglers need to realize they won’t be at a traditional fly fishing lodge during the evenings, but the beer is just as cold (and included in the rate with all mixed drinks and sodas!), the rooms and meals are as nice or nicer, and if they would like to bring a non-fishing spouse or family, those people will be entertained and well-taken care of while the anglers are out chasing permit, tarpon, and bones.

Ichanga Float

Kamchatka - Russia

During our initial exploratory season on the Savan, we hiked up its main tributary, the right fork, and discovered some of the best fishing and biggest rainbows of the season.

With this fresh in our mind, we scheduled two full exploratory adventures in 2013. The first trip landed about 12 miles up this right fork, led by Mike Michalak and a group of adventurous anglers from Alaska. During the first few days they found a beautiful river cascading through a rugged canyon. Each day they found a few spots holding some really big rainbows, but between each good “hole” was a lot of difficult terrain making access and fishing difficult. Once they left the canyon, however, they found several miles of idyllic water: it was shallow, easily waded, and full of huge rainbows and char.

Michael Caranci took the second group down the Ichanga a week later, starting at the base of the canyon where the terrain and fishing got really good, spending three days with only 4 anglers exploring every riffle, pocket, boulder, and overhanging tree branch in this small, intimate water. The fishing was incredible, with super aggressive rainbows from 20 to 26 inches attacking streamers and mice patterns with a ferocity seldom seen in trout.

Give us a call today at 800-669-3474 and ask for Michael Caranci or Justin Miller.
