From the 11th till the 16th of February we had the pleasure to receive again Mr Jeff Klassen for his second trip with us , ( Jeff was with us in January 2001 . He own several IGFA World Record ) This time Jeff came with three friends from Usa so we did use two boats.( two anglers per boat )

I did receive all guests at the airport of San Jose in Costa Rica . First Jeff with another Angler in the morning , We stayed in my house, talking fishing waiting for the two other coming in the late evening from California . We pick them up with the van and went for the night at Don Beto the Bed and Breakfast of Dona Flory.. located in the mountains of Sarcero..
Following day a stop at The Iguanas of Carlos and we arrived in Los Chiles around 10am.
Boat were waiting for us...I knew Fishing in Rio Frio and Cano Negro was poor ( this happen there ) so we did decide to enter Directly to Nicaragua where this same day we had tarpon , close to San Carlos on San Juan River in Santa fe, Isla del Amor, San Pancho...
During following days we went down San Juan River ( 25 miles ) to fish the area of Saballo where we had a lot of Tarpon, on Trolling, Casting, and also on Fly... ( There is a rapid there with since the beginning of February a lot of Active Tarpon so fishing is much easier ) Everybody had many fish, ( Jeff six tarpon in and afternoon with an average size of 130lb ) . Unfortunately one of the guests did broke one of his Special Tarpon fly rod on a very big fish...
We also caught some interesting snook in the area.....
Part of the trip has also been around the Beautiful Islands of Solentiname Archipelago , where as usual we successfully caught smaller fish on light tackles, Rainbow bass, Machacas, Wapote...Mojarra
On the 16th we went back to San Jose, Guest did stay in very comfortable hotel El Presidente.. Jeff  spend the night in my house of Heredia ,a long night of talks.. it is always a great pleasure to talk fishing with a so experience Angler...Folowing day he was fishing in Golfito...at sea this time...
