Drew Chicone, author of Feather Brain

"I often wonder if any other angling author in the word has logged even half the miles Rod Hamilton has waded on tropical flats. I know there isn't a resource that compares to Fly Fishing the Yucatan in terms of thoroughness, grit, and honesty. You almost feel like you have to shake the sand out of the pages when you finish a chapter. This handy reference can reliably guide you through a lifetime of adventures among the most intricate and alluring flats on the planet.

Kirk Deeter, Editor-at-Large, Field&Stream

Rod Hamilton’s first book, Do It Yourself Bonefishing, created the new wave of interest in self-arranged fishing trips. This one is going to turn that wave into a tsunami. A masterful job. Chock full of information. It will make you want to plan your own trip to the Yucatan.

Don Causey, Editor, The Angling Report

Rod Hamilton’s book, Fly Fishing the Yucatan, could be the most important gear you pack for a fishing trip to Mexico. Rod’s research and the detailed information it provides could just save your trip. There are only two things to know about fly fishing in Mexico: read this book and don't drink the water!
