My friend, jake Jordan, had a rather serious health problem on his drive home a couple of weeks ago. He is doing much better, now, and files the following report that should be of great interest to anyone really wanting to nail a bill fish or catch a big tarpon in the dark hours.
Greetings from my home office in NC:
Just wanted to thank all of my friends and family for your kind e-mails, posts, and get well cards, it really helped me in my recovery to know that so many people were praying and wishing me well in my recovery. This bout is probably 90 percent over, I am getting stronger, having some tests on Wednesday, but basically I think that I will be back to working here in the office this week. At this time I think that I will be able to handle this in the future by using diet and medications, that being said there is a possibility that some surgery may be necessary, just not sure yet.
The fishing is red hot NOW in Guatemala, there are a few openings on top boats this week at Casa Vieja Lodge, if you can make it, give me a call, i will try to get you in on this red hot bite, Boats have been raising 30 to for fish per day! The fly fishing schools have been very productive this season, several will be there next week, Booking for next season is filling up quickly, reserve your prime time dates today.
Assuming that my recovery continues, I will be leaving North Carolina on March 30 to head down to Marathon in the Florida Keys, for my 63 day Tarpon fly fishing season. I was sold out for this season about a month ago, however one of my clients had to cancel his trip to fish the nights of April 3, 4, and 5, along with May 10th. If you have the desire to catch a bunch of Tarpon on fly, call me now to reserve some of these prime Tarpon on fly dates.
On June 7th I plan to head down to Los Suenos, Costa Rica, where I will stay for several months, and operate my “Blue Marlin Fly Fishing Schools” aboard the vessel “Dragin Fly”. My “Blue Marlin fly fishing Schools” last year during June, July, and August, had an unbelievable record, Each of my Students ((fly anglers) caught and released between 1 and 6 Blue Marlin on fly per trip. That is a 100 percent success rate for all of my clients, if you have the desire to catch a Blue Marlin on fly, then book your trip today. Of my 8 planed six night, five day, schools, there are three sets of dates still available: June 25, to July first, or July 2 through 8, or, August first through seventh. This fishery will not last forever, but now it is the best place in the world to catch some Blue Marlin on fly. Last season we raised between 10 and 80 Blue Marlin per day.
You can tell from my writings that I am feeling better, looking forward to getting back to the job which I love, catching big fish that jump on a fly rod.
Thank you for your good vibes, I am truly blessed to have so many good friends, and a loving family.
