Costa Rica has long been a haven for adventurous anglers in search of the Silver King. Throughout Costa Rica’s history as a fly fishing destination, the fishing has remained at a very high level, and its consistency is phenomenal. The Rio Colorado, just south of the Nicaragua border, is considered the home of the Tarpon. Every year in the months of September and October, extreme numbers of tarpon congregate at the mouth of the Rio Colorado, feeding aggressively on the abundant herring which occur in this area during these times.
