Fly fishing in Costa Rica

My girlfriend and I are traveling to Costa Rica in April-May for about 3 weeks... We are roughly planning on staying on the Osa/off Golfo Dulce for about 8-10 days, Caribbean coast for about 5-6 days and about 3 days to go to the Arenal area. We will be traveling by public transport and are on a budget for accom and food - willing to spend a little more if something is really recommended.

I want to do as much fly fishing as possible while on vacation and am looking for any information about good fishing areas, guides to ask around for, etc. in these areas. All of the searching we have done on the internet gives us only really expensive options for high-end lodges, etc. as is usually the case with this type of search. We are looking instead for recommendations of local guides who can take us shore/inland stream/river/lake fishing, etc. (rather than deep-sea) while we may base our stay out of accommodations of our own choice. That way my girlfriend can fish if she chooses, or could do some other activity of her choice.

As for budget for guiding, etc. about $0-225 per day would be our aim.
Thanks for any help...

If you find one in the zero range, let me know how it works out!

In the past in Mexico, PR and the South Pacific I've been able to wrangle up a local fisherman to take me out to the fish for quite a bit less than the lodges if there were any lodges. Sometimes it has worked out, sometimes I got what I paid for...not much.

LongPoint,

I've traveled a couple times to CR (Just returned a little over a week ago). I'd be glad to share with you some great budget places (and fishing locations). Send me a PM and I'll give you the details.

Sounds like you have a great trip shaping up!

No big secrets. Just the names of some places to stay (hotels), places to go, and things to do. If you are still interested, I'd be glad to share.
