VitesseDuffle_1

Every adventure has its mundane aspects. Packing and getting there qualifies as mundane, if not downright unpleasant. It becomes even more of a challenge when strict weight and size limits are imposed as on my recent trip to the Rio Parismina Lodge in the jungles of Costa Rica, for a week of tarpon fishing.   The WaterField Designs [...]
