Chaos, raw unadultered chaos! That is the only way to describe what it is like to hook into a large tarpon. Everything about tarpon is tailor made to get your adrenaline through the roof, and test your skill and endurance.


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.
