Could anyone give me advice on what flies to use for Rooster fish. I will be going on a fishing holiday to Baja Mexico in July and fly fishing for Roosters from a Panga at the resort I'm staying at is an option. But the resort shop does not sell or supply any fly fishing equipment, so I'm taking my own tackle and hoping someone has experience of fishing that part of the world and can advise what patterns catch down that way and where to buy them.

I've fished that way before but not for Roosters. Suggest you contact Roberts Lures for stockists. And/or for their advice direct. Have a great trip and don't forget the camera!

I fished Baja for Roosters and had great fun with poppers and crease flies. Watching them chasing the fly with their fins out the water is one of the most exhilarating experiences in the sport. I didn't give the Roosters enough time as I became side tracked with Sailfish and Marlin but Roosters are great sport.

Ha ha ha Roosters won't even come into things when you have your first Marlin or Sail fish rise to he bait/lure. All other fishing goes out the window. Good luck with the trip it sounds fantastic prospect

the Eat Me fly or Enrico Puglisi baitfish would get choked by roosters!
