1st Annual Jungle’s Edge Tarpon Tournament Video Update


“It was a pleasure to be a part of the 1st Annual Jungle’s Edge Tarpon Tournament in Manzanillo, Costa Rica!” – Capt. Jesse Males

The Jungle’s Edge Tarpon Tournament was put on by Tarponville Fishing Lodge down on Costa Rica’s beautiful caribbean coast. I am happy to say that Backwater Fly Fishing was able to be one of the many sponsors for this wonderful event.

On the last day of fishing, Brooke was able to qualify for one of our Custom Wooden Tarpon Boxes that we were giving away as a prize.

I must say, I am very pleased to be able to hand off this wonderful gift to such a great angler!

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 backwaterflyfishing.com as well as our online fly shop, backwaterflies.com. 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.
