Captain Eddie Brown is considered Costa Rica’s pre-eminent tarpon fisherman/guide. He has been taking out anglers from around the world to fish for tarpon for the past 40 years off Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast near the border with Nicaragua, from the Rio San Juan to Tortuguero and Barra del Colorado. Eddie won practically every tarpon tournament he entered. So he is ‘banned’ from competing. His wife Cynthia now wins them all!

Anglers fishing recently with Eddie on his 22ft Bull Shark took this video. Tarpon leaps are incredible, and pound-for-pound, they are probably the toughest gamefish anywhere.
