Tom Brokow once said, "If fishing is religion, then fly fishing is high church." If you know a fly fisherman or you are a fly fisherman you know these guys (and some gals) are crazy passionate about their anglin'.  Especially those who venture deep into the freshwater and brackish estuaries of the Sian Kaan Bioreserve where therein lies the coveted "Grand Slam" (bonefish, tarpon and permit caught the same day) and "Super Slam" (bonefish, tarpon, permit and snook caught the same day).

Though their hearts were in the right place, their questions reflected doubt and discouragement. It seems like a lifetime ago when I packed up my truck and made the trip to the Riviera Maya. To everyone's surprise (even my own) I had carried through with my decision. I was determined to change the...
