The Spanish word "Sabaleando" literally means "Tarponing" in English. Victor Rodriguez runs Sabaleando from the beautiful old pirate city of Campeche in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Victor's nickname is Puma and he and his guides have an intimate knowledge of the close by Petenes Mangroves (you can be fishing within 20 to 30 minutes form the city) and they specialise in locating the amazing habitats of the baby tarpon for mad keen flyfisherman like me. Campeche is one of world's best locations for baby tarpon and don't think of baby tarpon as babies, they pack a mean punch. Puma goes out of his way to put you on the tarpon and goes the extra mile to make your visit unforgettable. I've flyfished at night in the mangroves with him and caught a tarpon on fly, that's pretty unusual. You fish by listening. My experience of flyfishing for sea trout at night sure paid off on that occasion. I have a great relationship with one of Puma's guide's Bellito. Bellito and I are a great team and we don't say much (that's probably due to my limited Spanish, more than anything else), but we don't need to. Fishing is ingrained in the both of us and we just go and do it. This part of the world is amazing and as flyfishermen we have the wonderful privilege of seeing the best of nature. The Petenes mangroves are precisely that - the best of nature.
