Trip of a lifetime-fishing- need suggestions

Can someone suggest a trip of a lifetime for my 24 yr old son and 55 yr old husband? They love to fish, but are prone to seasickness. As a sideline, they would also like golf and maybe wild game viewing, but the primary objective would be fabulous fishing...(ie, the "sidelines" aren't required). This could be anywhere in the world and needs to be in July, about 1.5 to 2 weeks.

My husband and son would LOVE to fish the Turneffe Atoll in Belize:

There's one caye (island) that has golf, Chapel Caye, I think - don't know what the logistics would be to get there. Belize has a lot of wonderful inland opportunities, too - hiking, caving, villages, ancient ruins. They could split their trip, saving the fishing for last.

Last summer we had a wonderful time off the beaten path on Roatán, Honduras at this place:

Lots of great opportunities on mainland Belize and other parts of Roatán, too.

Keep us posted! We're always looking for reports on places people have enjoyed flyfishing. Happy trails!

Alaska. July is the height of salmon season. Plus you could fish for halibut, trout etc. Wild game viewing would include bear, moose, whale watching.

Manuel Antonio/Quepos Costa Rica. My husband and I landed 11 sail and several other fish in one day. It was incredible.

Cabo San Lucas is a big fishing destination, and has some great golf courses. Check into some fishing websites that can tell you where the fishing is best for July. We went to Cabo in February, which is not the height of fishing season, and only caught one marlin in three days of fishing. We have been to Alaska in August, and had great fishing for both salmon and halibut.
