Description Fishing: Bonefish or Macabi, Cayo Coco. Cuba
This combative species allows the fishermen to be initiated into flats fishing, and is without any doubt one of the most combative fish, keeping in mind his relative weight - power. His long runs often leave the backing and at the same time they put to test the dexterity of the fishermen and his tackle.
The weight of these fish oscillates between 3 and 6 pounds although usually we achieve fish that surpass 8 pounds. Their mouth, with pronounced upper lips gives their nickname of "mouse fish ", this particularity obliges the fishermen to be very careful of the precise moment and during the fight since these slippery species often manage to remove our artificial flies - keep your lines tense, your rod over the shoulders and leave them running!!!! These will be some of the instructions that your guide will give you during the battle with these marvelous fish.
The main food of this species is shrimp, and for that reason we should try and make flies which resemble these small invertebrates.

Cuba, a tourist attraction par excellence, has expanded its offers beyond its limits by adding unexplored islets and keys for the enjoyment of vacationers.North of the Cuban eastern province of Ciego de Avila is one of the fastest-growing destinations in the Island's tourist sector, the Jardines del Rey (King's Gardens) archipelago.
According to legend, the exuberant nature of such islets as Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo and Paredon Grande led Conquistador Diego Velázquez to name that region in honor of Spanish King Fernando the Catholic.The region's tourist infrastructure has grown dynamically, and the sector's main target is to build more than 20,000 rooms, in addition to a modern airport, ports, nautical bases, natural parks and, of course, to implement ecotourism programs.Jardines del Rey's closeness to a 400-kilometer coral reef, considered the second largest in the world - after the one in Australia, gives a touch of class to the region's tourist offer, with a wide range of diving activities in warm and crystal-clear waters.
