ARSC announces Costa Rica expansion!

Merry and I would like to officially announce that we are the new owners of the Sportfishing operation Pelagic Pursuits Costa Rica and the 31′ Luhrs Go Fish.  The boat is located at the world renowned Los Suenos Marina and Resort near Jaco, Costa Rica on the central pacific coast.
We now offer Offshore fishing for Sailfish, Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Stripe Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, and Wahoo. If Inshore fishing is your game then you’ll love the Rooster fish, Cubera, Grouper, Jacks, Snook, and Tarpon.
Together with Captain Randall, mates Luis and Abrancy, we plan to offer our clients, friends, and family the same quality of experience we’re known for in the PNW! You can also expect to see and use the best products from Okuma, Raymarine, Tuf-line, P-line, and more.
Dedicated to customer service, reliable charter boats, friendly crew, and CATCHING FISH, we plan to bring our charter fishing experience to the table in Costa Rica!
Getting there is easy!  Most major airlines (including Alaska Airlines) fly to San Jose International Airport (SJO).  From there the drive SW to the Jaco area is less than 90 minutes on modern highways.  Rental cars are inexpensive as are transfers if you prefer not to rent a car.  Transfers, lodging and fishing can all be reserved through Merry or myself.
What about All Rivers & Saltwater Charters???  Everything will be business as usual at ARSC with plans only to continue and improve our 13 year charter service in Washington State!  Merry and I will be in Washington State May-October, managing ARSC on the ground, and travel back and forth every other month to Costa Rica November-April.  We will always be available via email, and phone 365 days a year.

Take a look at this HD Video of one of our Offshore fishing trips!

The Go Fish!

Over the next year the Go Fish will get quite a make-over.  To name just a few things on the list:

  • – Outfit the boat with new Okuma fishing rods & reels, and many other cutting edge products.
  • – Re-upholster the cockpit bolsters, tower seat cushions, and client seating area.

ShadyNook Cottage on the Olympic Peninsula

http://shadynookcottage.com/wp-content/themes/s5_velocity/images/s5_logo.png

For a relaxing vacation, visit the beautiful Olympic Peninsula with its rugged Washington Coast. Where the mighty Pacific Ocean rolls in like liquid thunder. On your hikes, witness some of nature’s most spectacular scenery.

While you are there stay at ShadyNook Cottage.  Innkeeper Deannie Hoien warmly welcomes you to a world of hospitality; dedicated to the enjoyment of your stay on the Olympic Peninsula. Enjoy the beauty of Olympic National Park with nearby Rialto Beach and the Hoh Rain Forest.

Boating on Lake Crescent contributed by iseff from FlickrThree vacation rental cottages with separate entrances await your stay in this garden setting. Each has a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath. Ideal for couples, though small families can be accommodated. A very private location, located minutes from downtown Forks, Washington.

Shadynook Cottage vacation rental is centrally located to all major attractions, making it a good base camp as you explore the area.

Many people stay three or four days as they visit area attractions like the Hoh Rain Forest, Ocean Beaches or Lake Crescent.

This 2,000 square mile region is bordered on the north and west by over 100 miles of saltwater shores and to the south and east by alpine meadows and rain forest valleys.Cape Flattery sea foam contributed by wiseleyb from Flickr

Fishing is one of the Olympic Peninsula’s most popular attractions.  Over 200 miles of wild rivers furrow the region with vibrant runs of native salmon and steelhead.  We think fishermen traveling to the Forks area will find our vacation rentals suit their needs perfectly.

Year round temperatures range from the mid-40’s to upper 60’s, snowfalls are infrequent as are temperatures over 80 degrees.

Fishing at the Anvik River Lodge

Here’s what Rene Limeres & Gunnar Pedersen have to say about the Anvik River – in their #1 Selling Book on Fishing Alaska, written by Alaska’s top guides, ALASKA FISHING THE ULTIMATE ANGLER’S GUIDE –

“Not too many folks know of the Anvik River of western Alaska; fewer have fished it. But it is one of the most important fish producing tributaries of the entire Yukon, and can offer a high-quality angling adventure for a variety of species, with virtually no fishing pressure. Like many Yukon & Kuskokwim drainages, it has a slow, wide meandering lower section (with good pike & sometimes even sheefish available), with the best conditions for salmon, char and grayling angling in the clearer, swifter upper sections.”

They list the highlight of the Anvik River as being “One of the Yukon River’s major fish producers, with under-utilizied sport fishing potential.”

Whether you are a novice or a seasoned angler, fly-fisher or spin caster, you’ll have the time of your life reeling in pacific Salmon, Northern Pike, Arctic Char, Dolly Varden and Arctic Grayling all on the Anvik River. Your guide will take you by jet boat to the hottest fishing you can imagine. We’ve got this entire gin clear river to ourselves so there’s no need to fly out to other rivers to find fish or escape the crowds.

Since the Anvik River is shallow enough to wade and we have almost 24 hours of day-light you can fish right in front of the lodge, unguided, from the docks or shoreline until late in the evening if you wish.

Tactical Tailor’s Rise to Success

From the mind of Logan D Coffey, Tactical Tailor was founded in 2008. The legacy continues to live on through his brother Justin, after his tragic death in a car accident. Here’s a brief history of Logan and his company.

In late 1991, Logan went straight from highschool to the US Army Infantry. Even in the first week of training, he could see that the army-issued gear was uncomfortable and impractical, and found that the gear issued was virtually the same as it had been back in the Vietnam War. He made it his personal mission to modify and improve that gear.

Within a few years, Logan had a veritable collection of industrial sewing machine parts and fabrics, and he had become the guy to go to for fixing up or modifying military gear.

At the end of his second enlistment, he decided it was time to leave and make his modification business his full-time job. In 1998, Tactical Tailor began in a two-bedroom house and a few-thousand-dollar loan. He was able to repay it in only six months.

In time the work grew out of its two-bedroom grass roots, but didn’t quite make enough for him to afford both a warehouse and a home, so he built a room to sleep in within his warehouse.
He hired ex-military and retired military and military spouses to sew as his business grew, and he expanded again in 2002, then once more in 2005.

Now his work is known to military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan, and he’s even been invited to the Pentagon several times.

The company motto is simple. “Do what’s right because it’s right.” That includes being made in the USA, for those who defend the USA, making quality gear and providing quality jobs.
