Fly Fishing Travel

Booking a lodge, dates, organizing flights and hoping that you wind up with a good guide crew is stressful! Fishing getaways are supposed to be fun. That is why you should leave the planning to us and let us coordinate your adventure. We'll do the research and most of our trips are even hosted by our guide staff. Trust us, if we are going it is a good trip!

Leave the Planning to Red's

fly fishing travel host

Currently, our top trips are the numerous weeks that we host to Ascension Bay, Mexico and our annual trips to Christmas Island and Holbox for big migratory Tarpon.  We usually have a few exclusive dates that come open during the famous Week 2 at the Alaska West on the Kanektok that is hosted by one of our owners.

Red's Fly Shop has built a reputation of being one of the very best fly fishing outfitters in the United States if not the world. We are extremely proficient at controlling the elements of our own guided trips, therefore we know what to look for in the destinations that we choose to work with in other parts of the world. We will only work with destinations that operate on the same quality level and customer service oriented philosophies that we do.

Preparation and Pre-Trip Planning

On our hosted trips, one of our qualified staff will focus on teaching, planning, and

communicating all details that will make your trip a success far in advance. Before you leave, we will even host workshops at our shop/lodge to show you how to tie the correct knots, select the right flies, increase casting proficiency, and teach the different strategies for the various species. We will be sure that you leave prepared, informed, and confident.

This includes helping you learn to fly cast BETTER to make the most out of your adventure.  We sincerely want you to have the best possible experience on our hosted trips.

Red's Fly Shop Host at the Lodge

Once at the lodge, we'll help match anglers with guides and coordinate special requests on a daily basis to maximize your enjoyment of the day spent on the water.  If there is a particular guide that you liked, we'll try to pair you up the next day.  If there was a guide that you didn't hit it off with, we'll be sure you don't fish together again.  Our hosts will be very active in being absolutely sure that the lodge and guides meet your expectations.

Payment and Deposit Policies

A 50% deposit is due within 10 days of the reservation.  We accept checks, PayPal, and credit cards.  A 3% processing fee is added to deposits and payments made by credit card.  Final payments are due 60 days from the departure date. For all trips scheduled less than 60 days out, full payment is required upon reservation. We recommend purchasing trip insurance and a medical evacuation policy for these trips. 

For all Reds Fly Shop travel adventures, both deposits and final payments are non-refundable unless a client is replaced. i.e. you (or we) can find someone to take your spot.  Both your deposit and final payment can be transferred to another client for the same trip.  Red's Fly Shop reserves the right to apply a $100 processing fee for itinerary changes.
