Fishing Tackle Review – Okuma Nomad Travel Rods

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

As the story goes, I’ve been living, working, and fishing in Central America for the past 12 years.  While San Jose, Costa Rica is home, during my time here for one reason or another I’ve traveled to all seven Central American countries – in addition to another 15+ throughout the rest of the world.  During my twenties I was perhaps more concerned about collecting stamps in my passport and the thrill of new experiences (those that I can remember, anyway) while now in my thirties I’m smart enough to have […]

Most of us are proud to say we are responsible anglers who practice catch-and-release on the species we should – those under pressure and those protected by law.  In both Costa Rica and Panama all billfish are strictly catch-and-release by law, and more importantly all responsible captains adhere to it passionately.  Other species like roosterfish and tarpon are so revered for their fighting ability that 95%+ of them are released so they live to fight another day, plus it doesn’t hurt they aren’t generally regarded as good table fare.  But […]
