Welcome to the fishing Mecca!

Costa Rica - Welcome to the fishing mecca!

Recreational fishing, also called sport fishing, is fishing for pleasure or competition. The most common form of recreational fishing is done with a rod, reel, line, hooks and any one of a wide range of baits.

Other devices, commonly referred to as terminal tackle, are also used to affect or compliment the presentation of the bait to the targeted fish. Some examples of terminal tackle include weights, floats, and swivels. Lures are frequently used in place of bait. Some hobbyists make handmade tackle themselves, including plastic lures and artificial flies. The practice of catching or attempting to catch fish with a hook is known as angling.

When angling, it is sometimes expected or required that the fish be returned to the water.

Costa Rica is a fishing Mecca! Costa Rica is home to some of the best sport fishing and deep sea fishing in the world, with over 79 world records to its credit.
