Xcalak Guide Profiles – Filipe Miravete
Written by Rob Mukai on Oct. 25, 2016
We have a lot of great independent fly fishing guides here in Xcalak. I am putting up profiles of the guides in this space. I have personally been out fishing with every one that is highlighted here so I can personally vouch for their expertise and professionalism.
I’m kind of breaking a rule that I won’t put up a guide that I haven’t been out with. Filipe is the youngster of the Osprey Tours group of guides. And I haven’t gotten out with him yet. Will definitely update when I do.
