A huge thank you to Samantha & all volunteers who helped in organizing this one of a kind, life changing event for LADIES WHO LOVE TO FISH! We would love to see more of you here in Costa Rica for next years event. We are offering full tuition & tournament practice fishing packages year round for those that would like to work on sharpening their Sport Fishing skills. Fishing Offshore Bluewater tournaments is a marathon not a sprint, but the fun & appreciation increases as your knowledge does and the lifestyle rewards are just amazing for those that are up for the challenge.
What a weekend!
