We used Tailwaters to book the trip through Avalon and decided on the South Shore trip, Jardines De La Reina
Bonefish, light tan Gotchas in size 2s and 4s, It needs to be something that will sink quickly, Cuban Bonefishing
Permit, a light colored fly called the Avalon Fly. I have not written my post about the Permit fishing but I will include a picture of the Avalon Fly when I do.
Tarpon, on the flats, we used 10# rods, sometimes we used a floating line, sometimes a clear, intermediate sink tip line--depended upon tidal patterns and whether we were fishing an incoming or outgoing tide--purple and black Tarpon Bunny, purple and pink Tarpon Toad, but not the foam head ones, and for the deep holes, we fished a 12# 500 grain sinking line using a Black Death and a fly whose name I do not know but was bought and used for Golden Dorado. I'll have to update the blog post and include a picture, Tarpon in Cuba
I'll include more as we break down our trip and review our notes of what worked and what didn't.
