Marty Arostegui White Marlin on Fly

Marty Arostegui is in pursuit of catching every species of bill fish on fly. He is now only missing a striped marlin, which he will hopefully accomplish later this year. Stay tuned. Marty is pictured here with his white marlin. In his own words:

"Bill Curtis invited me to become a member of the Rod and Reel Club in 1990. Three years later I found myself in Venezuela fishing for white marlin with Captain Carlos Hernandez of the Gigi Fleet.

This is one of three billfish species I was able to catch and release during my many visits to La Guaira, Venezuela. I used a fly style that I learned about in Costa Rica from Captain Benny Spaulding. One of the original tube fly designs"
