Flyfishing and Light-Tackle Outfitters
Baja, MX

After years of fishing the fabled Baja, Mexico coastline, Jeff deBrown decided to start The Reel Baja and do it right. That was over 15 years ago. Today, The Reel Baja is one of the most experienced, fully licensed flyfishing and light tackle outfitters on the Baja Penninsula.

With a passion for creating amazing angling experiences for our clients, The Reel Baja is the only Orvis Endorsed Flyfishing Outfitter in all of Mexico.

Armed with the knowledge of the region and the water that only comes from being a full-time resident, The Reel Baja knows where to find fish. We build custom packages for you, whether that's a simple day of throwing sardine patterns to roosterfish from the beach on The East Cape or an all-inclusive multi-day excursion to target dorado and striped marlin in Magdalena Bay.



Jeff deBrown


Owner, Guide

Born and raised in Colorado, Jeff deBrown always loved to fish. He began his guiding career in 1989 in Colorado. Jeff has guided in beautiful destinations like Colorado, Montana, Alaska, Argentina and Chile.

He first began to explore the East Cape of Baja in 1997. Between guiding seasons in Alaska, he would work with Gary Graham who was an early fly fishing pioneer along the East Cape of Baja. In 2001 he would meet his wife Norma, establish a family and began his full-time guiding/outfitting service entitled, The Reel Baja. Since then he has never looked back, becoming one of the premiere guiding operations in Baja.

For over twenty years, Jeff has been teaching and helping his clients reach their goals; whether sight-casting for roosters off the beach with a fly or teasing striped marlin to the back of the boat for a bait and switch, Jeffโ€™s enthusiasm has never wavered. Jeff is a Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF) certified fly casting instructor and speaks fluent Spanish. Jeff genuinely enjoys sharing the wonders of the East Cape through his fondness for the locals, its slower paced lifestyle, the food, the unspoiled natural resources and abundant species that make Mexicoโ€™s East Cape a destination full of discovery. His goal is always to tailor your trip so you get the most out of your stay. Depending on the season and target species, Jeff also runs special guiding operations out of Cabo San Lucas, Magdelena Bay and other destinations around the globe.


We find fish around the Penninsula throughout the year. Each region fishes best at different times of the year, and that's where you'll find us. Give us a shout to discuss your Baja fishing plans, what you'd like to target and when you're planning to come.
