Well said fly-rod!

Having fished in a few so called "third world" countries myself including the Carribean nations and the republic of Kiribati (Christmas Island), I can say that they will always be my first choice when looking at a fly-fishing destination. In Mexico the Bahamas and Kiribati I have witnessed a very strong appreciation for the value of recreational fisheries. In many ways they do a better job of controling commercial exploitation of the resource than we do in the USA - and as you correctly state, these people fish because for many it is their only source of protein!

I myself have not fished La Republica Dominicana but I would never pass up the chance to fish any Carribean location given the opportunity. In tropical waters you just never know what's going to come along and eat your fly
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
