We've got four spots left to El Pescador Lodge on Ambergris Cay in Belize on April 19-25. The cost is $2920 double occupancy. It includes all the local booze you can drink, three squares, guide, boat and a 904-4 Orvis Helios rod.

Do the math on this one!

Call Ross at the shop - (425) 452-9138.

904? Isn't that a 9' four weight? Great stick for a tarpon trip! :)

Man, what a deal, though.

Either way, this is a commercial/advertisement post and should be banned!!! :mad:
Orvis in Bellevue is a sponser for this website, Leland is a regular contributor, and especially when the deal is as kick ass as this one, I have no problem with them letting us salt water addicts see hot deals when they come up, and I appreciate the notice.

Hosted by top guides in Belize for a week, and an open bar to boot, I'd jump on that trip in a heart beat if I had the spare cash. Really, do the math; back out the cost of a top shelf fly rod from the price, and you couldn't plan a DIY trip for less.

Oh, I assure you I know who the sponsors are and frequent them as much as possible. I also have the utmost respect for Leland and his posts are generally very informative and he's a welcome member to WFF. That said, I just calls them as I see them when I feel we are getting overly commercialized. I thought that his earlier post regarding this trip, though yes a great deal, went a little over the very grey line of etiquette vs. commercial interests.

To play devil's advocate to my own comment, Leland does not abuse this privilege like some constant self-promoters do by a long shot (Hawaiian bonefish). I pledge to save my angst for persons more deserving in the future.

:thumb: Man... I would have been all over this if it was a free trip with the purchase of the Helios rod. Many of you blokes should jump at this opp to go somewhere warm and chase some slippery creatures! The folks at Orvis are all top notch in my book, so lets give them some credit for helping out the local FF community by giving and sharing of their information. Now, if Leland was REALLY nice, he'd share with me those steelhead holes that we're lucky for him. :rofl:

Chris, Jerry and myself will take care of the moderation. This post is fine, and it sounds like a kick-ass trip.

Ibn, I like that. Can we say the moderators will ensure everything is in moderation and the members will kindly stick to holding their members? I could not pass up on that one. Sorry for those who may be offended.

It's a commercial post with a bait and switch title and Leland admits it should really be posted under Classifieds or Events. Not worth getting tied up in a wad about but not the best precedent either.
