Costa Rica: More Rainbow Bass and Machaca

Check out our most recent video of some of the gnarly rainbow bass and machaca action from the jungles of Costa Rica. The weather was horrible, but we were still able to pull it together and get the job done!

These fish were going nuts for topwater hopper and spider patterns. The rainbow bass and machaca kept coming up to the surface to nail my flies even despite the two hours of rain that fell during our morning on the water.

I’m Capt. Jesse Males, an avid fly fishing, snook snatching, kayak paddling, tarpon slaying, mountain hiking, manatee swimming fool from Central Florida. Over the years fly fishing has had a huge impact on my life and particularly on how I view the world we spend our time in. I am currently the owner and operator of as well as our online fly shop, The lifestyle that is called fly fishing has taken me to some amazing destinations and has provided me with some amazing experiences in the wild. From chasing big salty critters in the Florida Keys, to roosters in Coast Rica, to small wild trout in the Carolinas, and all the way up to the high mountain cutthroat of Wyoming; I have been blessed to experience fly fishing at its finest.
