Dear Christer,

I want to thank you again for the fantastic week in Cuba and share a short summary of my trip.

On Saturday morning we packed our fly boxes and flats clothing with great anticipation. The domestic flight from Havana was quick and we were able to enjoy the rest of the day at the pool! I have to admit the hotel Melia las Dunas is the best I have visited in the Caribbean thus far. The amenities, service, and fantastic food made the stay memorable.

We had an early breakfast on Sunday of eggs and bacon and the hotel provided lunches packed according to our wishes. We took a punctual fishing taxi to the marina and found the guides ready with all the loop gear rigged for both left or right handed anglers. Finally it was time to fish!

We saw tarpon already on the way out. The first quick cast resulted in a torpedo on the line and despite the fact I wasn’t really ready, the fish jumped and somehow managed to stay hooked! A short while later I had a fine 70-pounder at the boat. We missed a few others over the course of the morning and around two o’clock we moved to a beautiful tidal canal system and caught snapper, jack, barracuda and even had a shot at a large permit. The first days fishing was varied and action-packed.

Over the course of the week the early mornings up till just after lunch offered the best fishing. The week was fantastic and I boated nine tarpon between 60 and 90 pounds. Naturally I lost a much larger fish of about 130 pounds that said farewell after about a half-hours fight!

My partner Thomas had a similar week and I heard he had the opportunity to experiment with nine different tarpon on the last day! I could hear him and his guide on the boat laughing and yelling from a distance as they tested different techniques and flies. With so many willing fish it was possible to relax and really have fun with them!

The entire trip was well-coordinated. Everything exceeded expectation - from the VIP pickup at the airport to hotel, to the boats and fishing, back to the hotel and beach and all the varied and delicious food along the way. I decided to return already before I had departed! Please give my regards to the staff and the guides and tell them I’ll see them next season!
