Thanks for the info guys every bit helps. Hoping that our sponsored trip comes through, so far we have mixed results in getting the OK. Talked with Avolon and they are just about booked for a year and if I end up going on my own a year from this May the trip would cost about 5 grand for everything that includes a new 10 wt and reel.
I wonder what will happen to Cuba after Castro dies? Will capitalism put a condo on every beach? I hope I can get there before that happens. It would be interesting seeing Cuba a lot like what it was when Hemmingway left there.
