Don't be shy!

While walking on the beach this morning the gulls flocked above the water. This drew a large crowd of Costa Ricans realizing the sardines were in shallow and following the sardines would be the larger fish called Jack. From my understanding a Jack is a male yellow tuna.... The fisherman were catching fish and Carlos a nearby fisherman asked if I would like to try. I could not resist and took the opportunity. For the next 10 minutes I ran up and down the rocks fighting the fish, listening to instructions in Spanish and laughing as the drag screamed! I was finally able to real in a Jack about 8 pounds. A smile in Spanish and English says the same thing - my new friend Carlos and I had just made the classic fisherman's bond! Let this be a lesson - if an opportunity exists - don't be shy, get involved!!!! Lars Long
