It is with great excitement we announce by Government Decree a National Commission has been officially organized for the PROTECTION OF THE SAILFISH IN GUATEMALA within our Pacific coastline.

As a physician I always try to order the right thing for my patients. This time I self prescribed an outstanding fishing trip to Guatemala. I have been fishing aggressively in the ocean for thirty years. I used to tournament bill fish in Hawaii and placed fourth in the Maui Halloween tournament. Fifteen years ago I started fly fishing for tarpon, bill fish and salmon. I have fished extensively in Costa Rica during the last six years.
