Hosted Trip Schedule
DON'T WAIT ON A HOSTED TRIP TO BOOK A TRIP WITH TAILWATERS!
For some reason it is a common misunderstanding that we only book hosted trips. In reality, 95% of our travel business is booked with individual parties organizing a fishing holiday without joining a hosted group. If you have an interest in visiting a certain fishery or destination, we provide the same expertise, high level of service, and thorough pre-trip detail when organizing your adventure. We have clients traveling somewhere nearly every day. If you are ready to consider a trip, please don’t wait for your desired destination to pop up on the hosted trip schedule. You can book a trip with Tailwaters anytime. Give us a call as we would love to earn your travel business.
About Our Hosted Trips
Although the majority of our business is derived of bookings from private and individual parties, several times a year a member of our team will lead, or "host", a trip to various destinations. Many of our clients prefer to sign up for our hosted trips because we provide a sense of security and added professionalism to the adventure. Some of our hosted trips are to destinations that we have visited in the past, while others are a bit more speculative exploratory trips to new and exciting locations.
Our hosts act as liaison for the group and the lodge operator, make important group decisions, offer extra casting and fishing instruction, and generally see that things run smoothly and happily for the group. Our hosted trips are tons of fun and encourage folks to visit exotic destinations that they normally would not do on their own. Usually a hosted trip consists of 4-10 clients who join a group of anglers along with an employee of the shop. In addition to offering the presence of qualified first hand knowledge of the destination, hosted trips also provide a cohesive social environment for the group, making it an excellent opportunity to meet new friends and angling partners.

Ascension Bay, Mexico (8 Spots Open)
Our annual early season hosted trip to Palometa Club is always a no brainer and a ton of fun. Palometa Club is located in Punta Allen, Mexico on the northeastern edge of the famed shallow saltwater flats of Ascension Bay. Owned and operated by Americans, the Palometa Club offers a laid back and familial angling holiday from their comfortable and charming lodge right on the beach in Punta Allen.
Most notably, Palometa has also earned their reputation as the planet’s premier permit fishing program. While permit on fly is their brand, the flats of Ascension Bay offer anglers consistent opportunities for bonefish, tarpon, snook, barracuda, jack crevalle, and more. They hang their hats on a 1:1 guide to angler ratio, unique techniques and approach, and an all-star staff of local, professional guides.
El Pescador - Belize
March 8-14, 2014
Ambergris Caye, Belize (8 Spots Open)
Join Haskell Stricklen at one of the Caribbean’s most respected lodges for 6 nights / 5 days of fishing and fun. The island’s incredible fishing diversity (bonefish, permit, tarpon, much more), the liveliness of nearby San Pedro Town, loads of non-angling activity, family friendly atmosphere, as well as stunning accommodations, food and amenity make El Pescador one of our all-time most popular destinations. With 2.5-hour direct flights from Dallas, Houston and Miami to Belize City, there is perhaps no Caribbean fishery easier to get to that Ambergris Cay. El Pescador has standard hotel rooms as well as multi-bedroom villas available for larger groups. Guests are welcome and encouraged to bring non-angling companions in tow to enjoy a wide array of eco-tours and explore nearby San Pedro.
Ambergris Caye is known for its frequent shots at plentiful bonefish, good chances for permit and tarpon, and loads of other species on the flats and around the reef. Whether you are an experienced saltwater pro or a novice first timer, Ambergris Caye if a fishery that guarantees a bend in the rod!
