Ok so here we go. Let me start by saying I have never won anything until this year. I won the Grand prize in FlyRod&reel's 30 year customer appreciation contest. What was the grand prize you ask? It was an all expenses paid all inclusive trip to Pesca Maya Lodge in Ascension Bay 3 hours south of Cancun in Mexico's Yucatan. I am a Fly Fisherman and I fish at least two days a week all over the west, but I had never fished the tropics. Pesca Maya lodge is indescribable so I will let the pictures talk.



George and his staff were great and attended to our every need. The food was impeccable and the scenery was some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. I had the pleasure of traveling with Jim Butler the VP of Down East Publishing the company that publishes FlyRod&Reel Magazine. Jim was a gracious host and gave me plenty of bow time for Bone Fish, Tarpon, Snook and Permit. The reason I am FUBAR is now all I can think of is how to get back to the tropics. I called Jim when we got home and told him that he had ruined me and he laughed and said his plan had worked. Here are some of the pictures I took of fishing and the wildlife in the area. Jim took a ton of pictures that I have also but I will not publish them as the Magazine is going to do a spread on the trip.

You get the idea it was the best trip I have taken thus far in my 44 years of life. I want to thank FlyRod&Reel for the opportunity and I want to thank Jim for being the host with the most. Jim you can be my wingman anytime.
Tight Lines,
