Nicaragua – The Rumble in the Jungle

Posted February 29, 2012 by in Fresh Water Fly Fishing, Salt Water Fly Fishing, Tarpon

Steve Tatigian, Jed Mixter, Ned Hutchinson and myself flew to the Atlantic Coast in search of River Tarpon and Snook.  Despite the conditions the trip turned out to be quite the adventure.  We flew into Bluefields and stayed at the Casa Rosa lodge which was right on the water and the food cooked by Mama was excellent!!  We fished for Snook in the rivers the first day with some good success and then the next day we headed North by boat at day break  for an incredible adventure !!  There had been a good amount of rain prior to our arrival, so a lot of the areas we were intending on fishing were off color, we still found some incredible Tarpon Lagoons with fish rolling everywhere, I can only imagine what it would have been like if the water was clear, maybe I will have to return.  The adventure itself was well worth it, a trip that is truly unique……..
