61 blue marlin raised to the fly in 3 days

Costa Rica Blue Marlin Fly Fishing School Report
July 21 - 25, 2019 Hepburn

Greetings from Los Suenos Costa Rica:

My old friend Austin Hepburn and his lovely daughter Elizabeth Hepburn just got back in to the dock after spending 3 days at my “Costa Rica Blue Marlin Fly-fishing School “ aboard the vessel “Dragin Fly” . They fly fished 3 days in choppy and cloudy weather with Captain James Smith along with Mates Berto, Bernie, and Danny, with rain and 84 degree water.

 The total score for this school was 61 Blue Marlin Raised, 33 Blue Marlin bit the fly, Elizabeth and Austin Caught and 

released 17 Blue Marlin on fly, while using IGFA rules with 20 pound test class tippet. I love my Job❤! More fly fishing reports to follow. #tforods #makoreels #fishseigler #jake_jordan_fishing

seamount report from James on the sat phone

Frigging technology is amazing,  he sends me an e mail from a satelite phone:

2:41 pm on 7/22
   "We are having an amazing day.  Couple more hours of light and we have raised 25 blue marlin, got 15 bites on the fly and have caught 11 blue marlin on the fly!"

4:39 pm on 7/22
    "We are up to 30 raised, 17 bites, but they are getting tired and are starting to bust them off, lost the last 3"

4:45 pm on 7/22
    "And they are starting to break fly rods......"

This second trip to Africa, like my first trip 10 years ago, was amazing and life changing.    I am so gratefull to have had the opportunity to share this again with my wife and now with my brother and 7 other fantastic people. 

It was a relatively long trip, with long flights, hundreds of long miles on dusty roads and 6 national parks.  In most camps guarded from the wild sounds of the night by Masai warriors with  sticks and spears, in the cities by layers of guards, gates and guns,

I am happy to be back in the United States of America and with a renewed appreciation for the opportuities and freedoms that we enjoy.  There is no wonder that so many people give up everything and are literally dying to get here.  It is shameful that so many of our own citizens take for granted and do not take advantage. 

I am thankful for those who have fought and died for us to have these opportunities and freedoms.  

Enough of my rant, enjoy some pics:
