Our Story

Flyfishing in Cozumel

Flyfishing Uno Mas was created over 20 years ago by local guide and flyfishing instructor Gildardo Castillo, also known as

"Captain Tortuga."

His passion for flyfishing was so great that he brought Flyfishing Instruction to the local schools in Cozumel so that his students might share in his passion for the sport.

Captain Tortuga had a vision that Cozumel would become a major destination for anyone who would love to catch Bonefish on a fly rod in an Island Paradise.

After his death in 2015, the company was purchased by the current owners, Ruben Poot Vera and his wife, Yanely Tamayo in order to continue the Vision of Captain Tortuga. 


"It was my first time to see the beautiful island and I cannot stop thinking about it. Capitan Mike Alonso was our guide on the Uno Mas. He is the most wonderful person and guide. He is a patient and caring instructor. He made my first trip to the island so memorable."
-Carla Stone  San Antonio Texas

What a cool place to fish with a lot of fishery options from Permit, Bonefish, and Tarpon to Grouper and Snapper all the way to Tuna and Dolphin!


Mike was awesome and clearly knows the fishery well.  I learned so much casting in the salt and setting the hook on the fish.  Mikes tarpon spot is hot and the boat ride was incredibly beautiful!  
Jessica and I had the best time.

"Captain Miguel has guided me several times. He's a Great Guide, agressive fellow, he really chasses those fish!"
