|Adolfo and Dave with his first rooster - day 1|
The roosterfish action is still blazing hot for us here in Ixtapa /Zihuatanejo. Early in the week I had already been booked in advance by David Yoder of Seattle to fly fish for roosters, and then Henry Huskins of Houston, Texas called me the night before wanting to conventional gear fish for roosters. I called Adolfo and we put Henry with Cheva on the panga Dos Hermanos (Adolfo’s boat), and because Cheva’s boat, the Dos Hermanos II is more fly fishing friendly, David and I went with Adolfo on Cheva’s boat.

|Day 2 for Dave|
Plus, when David went back with Adolfo the next day, with memories of those 50 pound and Fly Fishing World Record 70 pound class fish that had followed his fly, but did not eat it, he quickly got over his learning curve. On the 1st day the cast was sometimes a bit early, but usually a bit too late. By the 2nd day he was able to get the timing down of having the fly hit the water just in front of the hookless surface teaser popper, and about 50 feet out. Did he do well? He got SIX roosters on the fly! I would say he is a veteran now.
Is Adolfo good? He told me his clients have caught over 300 roosters this last 45 days. Plus, that tells you something about our area here. Even the best captains can’t catch fish if they aren’t there.
