Travel With a Great Group and a Host That Really Knows the Area
Every year we offer a number of customized, handpicked trips that are personally organized, lead and hosted by different members of the Yellow Dog team. This is a great way to enjoy a fantastic week of fishing with a fun group of fellow anglers as well as someone who really knows the area, the guides, the fishing, and the overall operation. New hosted dates are being added and posted on this site throughout the year, so be sure to check back on a regular basis!
"I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my recent hosted trip with Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures. I've only been destination fishing twice before, but fishing with Yellow Dog has taken it to a new level. The attention to detail and the amount of information produced by Yellow Dog was incredible. There really were no unexpected surprises at all ... which is a good thing. The next time I do this, Yellow Dog will be my first phone call. I feel truly blessed to have been a part of this trip. Thanks also for everything you added to the trip by hosting. I learned a ton and enjoyed every aspect of the week!"

Yellow Dog's Director of Sales, Tom Melvin, will be hosting a group on August 5 – 12, 2017 to Plummer’s Great Bear Lake Lodge with a fly out to the Tree River Outpost located in the Northwest Territories, Canada. Due to the remote nature of the fishery and the short summer season, Great Bear Lake sees only about 300 anglers a year and the Tree River Outpost sees even fewer. In operation for more than 60 years, Plummer’s Great Bear Lake Lodge boasts the all tackle world records for both Lake Trout and Graying, and the Tree River Outpost has the all-class world record arctic char. To learn more about Plummer's Lodge click here. Spots will fill up fast, so contact shaun [at] yellowdogflyfishing [dot] com (Shaun Lawson) to reserve your space!
Join Yellow Dog Ambassador, Oliver White, as he leads a group of anglers into the Amazon rainforest of Brazil to one of the most unique and exotic fishing lodges on earth: Kendjam. Anglers can expect to be blown away by the diversity of the fishery, with opportunities for more than ten different jungle fish species. The waters in this area are impressively clear and many different kinds of fish can be caught out of the same pool or run by using various techniques and different flies. The Iriri River headwaters system had never before been fished by non-natives until two years ago when the Kendjam program was created. If you are interested in being among the very first to fish the near-virgin waters of the Mekragnoti Indigenous Territory, this is your chance. This trip is ideal for the angler with a zest for adventure. The price is $6,250 per person (not including Native Community Entry Tax of $600).

Dan "Rooster" Leavens will be hosting a group of anglers in Jardines de la Reina in May of 2018 for some world class saltwater fishing during prime tarpon migration season. Jardines de la Reina is an archipelago located off the southern coast of Cuba about the size of the Florida Keys. Anglers will stay on a liveaboard houseboat where each morning, anglers are met by guides and skiff to head out for the day. Yellow Dog has recently updated the Cuba travel logistics for Jardines de la Reina, sending anglers through Camaguey, Cuba, dubbed the City of Churches. This drastically cuts down on the amount of travel time for anglers in JDR to only a few hours of transfer time (versus the 8 hour ride of previous years). The cost for the trip is $6,300 per person (based on double occupancy). Please contact kristen [at] yellowdogflyfishing [dot] com (Kristen Tripp) for more details.

Jardines de la Reina is an archipelago off the coast of southern Cuba that is a marine protected park and approximately the same size as the Florida Keys. Jardines de la Reina receives limited fishing pressure and provides guests with shots at tarpon, permit and bonefish, among other species. As of recently, Yellow Dog Flyfishing has updated their travel logistics to Jardines de la Reina to significantly cut down on travel time. Instead of having to fly into Havana, anglers will now be able to fly into Camaguey, Cuba. The total cost per person for the trip is $8,560 (based on double occupancy).
