Well, a nice story to see pop up in my Google Alerts, Chris Santella writing about the Yucatan.
Those of you who follow the blog will know that I got to fish with Chris a bit in Cuba earlier this year with Avalon. Chris was a good boat-mate and was just a fun guy to have along on the trip. He brought his own guitar along and belted out some tunes in the evenings after we were off the water, well fed and a bit boozed up.
For nearly two millennia, the Mayan people along the Yucatán Peninsula’s Caribbean coast have relied on fishing for sustenance and trade. The tradition continues, though today many Mayan fishermen are as likely to be throwing a 10-weight graphite fly rod as a net.
