The Jungle's Edge

The Quest for Costa Rica's First Grand Slam! Tarpon, Permit, and Bonefish!
I can't believe it's been four years since we filmed this adventure! We are very excited to share with you our film from the 2017 International Fly Fishing Film Festival!
Film Overview: Imagine a world where the jungle meets the coast and the fly fishing is incredible. That's what you'll find in Costa Rica. Follow angler's Mark Martin and Alex Beck as they attempt the impossible: Costa Rica's first ever Grand Slam. What is typically thought of as primarily a great tarpon fishery, Captain Mark has discovered untouched waters, which hold permit and bonefish. But after a week of jumping and losing many 100+ pound tarpon, they find themselves with a chance to make history. The only thing standing in their way... the giant tarpon that have given them nothing but trouble all week. Come along for the ride to see if history will be made.

If you like fly fishing, giant tarpon, and an unpredictable adventure for two friends, then this film is for you! We spent nine days in Costa Rica, and it took all nine of them for this story to unfold. It was a tender mercy the way everything fell into place. I feel very blessed to have been a part of this adventure. We hope you enjoy!

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
