Boats, Equipment, And Captains

Our Boats and Captains

Among those in the know, the Panga marine fishing boat has an unparalleled reputation as a dynamic vessel. They provide the best possible platform for fly fishing adventures. From getting in close in shallow water, even beaching when necessary, to riding out the bigger swells with confidence, we know you’ll love their versatility and suitability to the job at hand. 

Our captains were born to these waters, and operate the Panga like an extension of themselves. You may find their expertise as seamen is your strongest asset in catching Roosterfish on the fly, and trust me on this, they’re as excited about you catching and experiencing all of the amazing species in our region as you are. The captains at El Gallo enjoy international renown for their expertise.

Somebody say they needed gear?

Travel is unpredictable, and sometimes things happen. Whether you’ve lost your checked bag or your gear is having problems, we have you covered. El Gallo keeps a well-maintained stock of professional-grade equipment for rent. We’re always working to establish relationships with the best gear makers in the business, so we look forward to occasionally seeing new, innovative ideas in our gear locker.
Our guides know fishing rods, and ours are serviced daily. Don’t expect to be sorely disappointed by antique, broken-down gear. We aim to minimize “the one that got away” stories and maximize brag posts on Instagram. We ensure that all the El Gallo gear can take the abuse that our fish dishes out. If you choose to, you can even leave your gear at home. Let us know your preferences, and we’ll rig it before arrival.
