Xcalak Guide Profiles – Chucho Jesus Tolentino Hernandez
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.
It’s been a while since I have gone out with Chucho, (I’ll have to change that 😉 But when I have gone out with him, he is a machine for finding permit. He also has some insight into finding tarpon, especially in the summer when the big ones are migrating.
