“Dear Fellow Anglers:
I am excited to announce that the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation is sponsoring a series of Blue Water Fishing Expeditions at the world famous Pacific Fins Resort in Guatemala. I will be there along with one of our marine research scientists.
Each expedition is limited to 18 anglers and will encompass three days of fishing in Eastern Tropical Pacific waters. Every angler will fish with me on my boat at least one day.
As you may know, Pacific Fins Resort has access to some of the world’s most prolific offshore and inshore fishing, which is why it’s one of my favorite fishing holes in the world! We will be fishing for blue marlin, dorados, roosterfish, yellowfin tuna, cubera snapper and other species running during your visit.
After a great day of fishing we’ll all be dining together as well as having two private cocktail parties. I will be painting an original to be auctioned off on our last night together.
Please review the attached flyer and consider joining me for this incredible fishing adventure, which will double as a GHOF research mission. Our tagging of billfish, dorados and roosterfish has taught us a great deal about these magnificent fish and is helping us to protect them. Your participation in these conservation efforts will be filmed as part of a documentary we’re producing.
Please know that by investing in what I promise will be a trip of a lifetime, you will further the marine conservation efforts of the GHOF, a 501c-3 nonprofit organization.
For more details, contact Brian Rowland: [email protected] I look forward to meeting you. Fair winds and tight lines!” Expetion Link & Flyer

In 1947, the Rodriguez family began the masterful art of cultivating tobacco on their private plantation in the town of Siguaney. The tobacco plantation was called, La Finca De Carmencita. Located in the villas province of Cuba. La Finca De Carmencita specialized in growing, aging, and curing filler tobacco leaves for numerous manufacturers throughout Cuba.
By 1952, La Finca De Carmencita employed over 20 workers and grew over 120,000 pounds of tobacco annually.
Eight years later, the Cuban government nationalized the private plantation and the Rodriguez family was forced to immigrate to the Unites States.
In 1971, the Rodriguez family found a new beginning on the beautiful island of Key West and established the Rodriguez Cigar Factory.
