  1. We just returned from 6 days in Guatemala. Sarah and I hosted several groups. The fishing was tough the toughest we have had in 12 years. Sailfish like sun and slick calm which is the usual conditions in Guatemala. We had six days of wind which made weird year a touch weirder. Everyone caught fish but we had to make the most of some half hearted bites. Our last day we found a big piece of float and our captain, Chris Sheeter decided to switch gears and pull all marlin teasers. There were acres of small bonitos around the float and we raised a blue marlin in 15 minutes. It was a big fish and would not eat the fly but checked it out several times. I would happily tried the fish if had eaten the fly but it would probably ended poorly. 20 minutes later we raised another blue around 180 pounds. Mike got the release on this fish in about 15 minutes. An hour later another blue crashed the party --Sarah hooked the fish, 15 minutes later she was 6' for the leader and the fish blasted way and landed on its back and it looked like the tippet broke--strangely the hook pulled. 2 hours later we raised another blue but it would not tease. As always Casa Vieja Lodge was first class and the best place I know of to catch a billfish on fly
