Fishing reports: #8 29th of January till the 5th of February

This trip have been organize from the 29th of January till the 5th of February

This report is based on info given to me by Augusto and Peter, I was not aboard…

Peter Gorinsky ( El maestro es-fly ) in Costa Rica did hired my Boat with Augusto for almost 8 days in order to fish Nicaragua with two guests. Obvious with Peter aboard the trip was 100% fly

On the 29th they did enter Nicaragua aboard Julia Brava via Rio Frio, San Carlos and then direct to Solentiname archipelago.

Fishing has been very good for Rainbow bass on fly …Also for the tourism part , Solentiname more than a hundred islands is a very beautiful area with a lot of Handcraft, Painting etc…Everybody did stay in nice hotel Solentiname.. A Fun birthday party, 3 days there and then down on Rio San Juan to El Castillo….The reservation where made at Hotel Albergue El Castillo …but the President of Nicaragua was also coming that day so at last moment we had to move at Hospedage Richardson.. Nice place , Good food…History , Scenery …What has been very strange in this part of the trip has been the fishing…All the area was full of tarpon , Augusto and Peter told me: ‘’ really a lot of tarpon everywhere " but NO WAY to have them take a fly… ( a bit cold? Bad moment in the day? ) Augusto as I know him was probably a bit nervous and would have love to try trolling or spinning with one of our favorite lures , I can ear him " Only one in order you see one jumping…" …but No way Augusto: remember fly fishing is much more than catch a fish on a tinny rod…You did well your guide job by bringing the guests where tarpon were…If Peter did not have one that day, trust me there is only a very few probability than somebody could have done it on Fly…

Peter called me after and told me trip has been great, every body has been very happy from fishing and fun…Peter did ad Augusto is a great guide, he is so attention , he work so much. really a very special person .. Peter E mail is   ffcr@flyfishcostarica.com What can I say is than anyway I regret than they did not have a Tarpon even if for real fly persons etc etc …especially as they were as usual a lot of tarpon……Anyway Peter did reserve my boat for another week in May knowing his integrity this means a lot to me.
