Once known as British Honduras, Belize is located just south of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. It's chief claim to fame is that it has the longest barrier reef in the western hemisphere, second in the world only to Australia's Great Barrier Reef. This, along with the fact that some ninety percent or so of its islands are uninhabitable makes it a light tackle anglers idea of heaven. From the super clear waters along the reef to its myriad clusters of mangrove islands and it innumerable flats, it has something for everybody. While the prime focus is on bonefish, permit and tarpon,  you could also fish the reefs and expect to catch two dozen different species of fish in a weeks time, including wahoo, kingfish, sailfish, tuna, barracuda, grouper and snapper. The following are just a couple of the choices available.
