Heaven on Earth for a fisherman and a nature lover.
Costa Rica boasts some of the greatest saltwater fishing in the world. With shore lines on both the Caribbean and the Pacific Ocean, the types of fishing you can do here are endless. The Pacific coast is where most big game anglers elect to go for sailfish, marlin, tuna, and mahi mahi. There are also numerous options for fishermen who prefer to stay close to shore and catch snapper and roosterfish.
High up in the mountains on the border of Panama, you can fish for naturalized rainbow trout that will take a fly more eagerly than any North American trout. Yeah, you read that right. Introduced by some ambitious GIs stationed in Panama during the 1950s, North American trout have found their way into Costa Rica’s rivers and have taken a firm hold on the generous ecosystem that Costa Rica has to offer.
When you’re not fishing, Costa Rica has some of the best ecological tourism in the world, including pristine beaches and coral reefs, active volcanoes, and lush rainforests. If you’re a surfer, expect perfect waves year round on the Pacific coast.

Dragin Fly Fishing Charters
In January of 2008, The Dragin Fly was launched as an addition to the fleet of 43 foot Maverick Yachts, fishing out of Los Sueños Marina, Costa Rica. Our sister boats, the Spanish Fly, the Super Fly and The Bite have set a standard for excellence in customer service and satisfaction which we strive to exceed. Typical catches include sailfish, sailfish and more sailfish, marlin, tuna and dolphin (also known as mahi mahi). The Dragin Fly is outfitted with Shimano rods and reels for light tackle inshore fishing to the biggest marlin or tuna. The cabinets and tackle drawers are filled with a wide variety of lures and fishing gear to take advantage of any fishing opportunities that the waters of Costa Rica may provide. The Dragin Fly cruises at 25 knots and has two air conditioners which cool the very comfortable salon, galley and cabin. Drinks and several courses of snacks are provided throughout the morning. Lunch, hand made sandwiches or hot burritos and fresh fruit, is also served during full day charters. We appreciate the opportunity to take you fishing and hope that you enjoy the Dragin Fly experience. Tight lines and calm seas, George Beckwith and Anna Beckwith Down East Guide Service
