Grand Slam on the Fly!
Day # 1, & 2, July 27, & 28, 2015
Greetings from Costa Rica:
After their first two 14 hour days of fly fishing at my Costa Rica "Blue Marlin Fly Fishing School", aboard the vessel "Dragin Fly", with Captain James Smith along with mates Berto and Marcos, Students (fly anglers) Guy and Elsie Anttila have more than reached their goal.
On day #1, (July 27), They raised 10 Blue Marlin, 2 Striped Marlin, and one Sailfish, They caught and released two Blue Marlin, one Striped Marlin, along with one Sailfish, all on fly on 20 # class tippet. This was the first Blue Marlin for each angler, the first Striped Marlin for Elsie, and her first ever Grand Slam on Fly!
On Day #2, (July 28), Captain James managed to raise 13 Blue Marlin, and one Sailfish, behind "Dragin Fly", they teased in 8 Blue marlin for fly bites, while Elsie and Guy cast too, hooked, fought, and released 4 Blue Marlin on fly.
I must say that the fly fishing for Blue Marlin here is the best that I have ever seen, and that my crew aboard "Dragin Fly" are now experts at finding, teasing, and catching these magnificent fish on fly. Wow, what a team, we have figured out how to consistently catch these awesome creatures on fly, while using 20 pound class tippet. This "Blue Marlin fly fishing school" still has one more day left to catch more marlin, I will send you a report tomorrow, with lots of great pictures. I love my Job, wish you were here.
