New Jungle Tarpon Fly Quest | Costa Rica

New Jungle Tarpon Fly Quest | Costa Rica

 

We are very pleased to announce another fantastic new destination this time Fly Fishing for monster tarpon in Costa Rica. By working with our partners Solid Adventures we have managed to open up a exclusive fishery, giving customers the chance to cast to rolling and feeding Tarpon in both rivers & lagoons.

OVERVIEW

This is without a doubt one of the world’s finest fly fishing trophy tarpon destinations, and one that has managed to stay just below the radar resulting in large and aggressive tarpon who are not afraid to charge and inhale a fly.

The fishery consists of a vast system of freshwater rivers, creeks, and flooded lagoons surrounded by rainforest and swampland. The tarpon have journeyed from the Caribbean Ocean some 300+ inland miles to reach these hunting grounds for a very good reason. At the time of the tarpon’s arrival, seasonal rains flood the immense lagoons to create an inland sea surrounded by volcanoes and rife with other primeval creatures like tropical garfish, sawfish, and freshwater bull sharks. This collection of archaic predators explosively feed on the many species of baitfish flushed into the lagoons by the heavy annual deluge, much to the delight of adventurous anglers.

Overall, anglers can expect many shots at fish ranging from 60 to well over 200 pounds each day as the tarpon here are active feeding fish with very little exposure to fishing pressure.

Also to ensure we keep the fishing as fresh as possible and to ensure the future of the fishery we have set a maximum of 14 weeks where we have based the schedule on fishing every second week in order to give the area a really good rest in between every group. We have made some adjustments in consideration of the lunar cycles where we avoid full moon weeks and fish a little more around new moon.

You can expect to fish from simple but efficient river pangas, with 2 anglers per boat taking turns on the bow. Since the environment is quite dynamic, fishing situations are also varied, ranging from sight casting at tarpon hunting or waiting in shallow lagoons and creeks, waiting for tarpon to roll or break bait on the surface before presenting a fly, and blind casting in likely areas.
