Any suggestions? Still not sure if I'm going but have a trip planned for a week and a half from now for Puerto Vallarta.

Not sure about any local favorites from that area, but I had success in Costa Rica using a sardinia (flatiron herring) fly I based upon photos I found on google images of those baitfish. Basically a 6 -8" baitfish fly, olive on top, the prominent gold stripe, and white without too much flash. Large holographic eyes, and use a marker to put on the spots. Caught a 42" rooster with it out of Quepos!

There are a ton of flies out right now. They are getting in my house. How do I get them out without spraying pesticides or running around with a flyswatter all day?
