What I Am All About

I’m Jesse Males, an avid fly fishing, snook snatching, kayak paddling, tarpon slaying, mountain hiking, manatee swimming fool from Central Florida currently living the high life in the jungles of Costa Rica.

I am a father, a husband, a fly tyer, and passionate outdoorsman. Not only am I the owner of Backwater Fly Fishing, but also the fly tyer at my online fly shop, www.backwaterflies.com.

In addition to spinning bugs for money I am one of the guides/owners of the adventure guide service in Costa Rica, 506 Outdoors. We offer jungle trout fishing, machaca fishing float trips, pacific coast kayak fishing, as well as overnight beach camping tours to remote sections of the country.

Overall, this site is an outdoor enthusiast’s way of sharing some of his findings, in hopes to encourage others to get up off the couch and enjoy nature at its best. If you have any questions about the information on this site or about fly fishing in general, please comment below or send me an email and I will be happy to help in any way that I can. Thank you for checking out Backwater Fly Fishing
