Matt took his wife and 4 year old daughter last year, they stayed in  cottage on the beach while we went in country and collected. I've got the first two weeks of December reserved with Felipe every year for 8 people. Ken

Plus a trip with you ken for me would be a guys’s trip, wife and kids stay in the casa (in Grayslake)....Would like too coordinate it to include BaldTaxMan, 1FishGeek, The Dude, ZinFin, and other Gymno Fans. It will happen.

hi all just got back yesterday, a special thank you to reagan and especially ken for his guidance and extensive knowledge of the area, i collected in the rio danto, rio arguan, rio jutiapa and rio monga, fish collected and saw were various livebearers, tetras, catfish, eel, goby sp.,sleepers, ****** looking fish, tilapia sp., assorted crustaceans, a mystery saltwater sp, tarpon, v. maculicauda, the ever present c. cutteri, a. robertsoni, c. hrp, fish were caught using hand lines, dip nets, cast nets and hands, a very enjoyable trip even though the president was overthrown and michael jackson died, a special highlight was in the rio monga seeing a rare morph of the liberty molly, 2 marbled males......

Glad I could help, Honduras is a great place.  Ken

Coups are a funny thing.  I was in Spain when a Colonel in the guardia civil named Tejero tried to overthrow the elected government and restore a more right wing rule with the king as the real head of state. 

LOTS of bullets about 1/2 mile from the dorm where I was staying and then the king came out and said stop it.  We have a democratically elected government and thats fine by me. 

The coup ended.  Moral of the story - have your ducks in a row before you try and take over a democratically elected government.

scott/mike getting there/out was not bad had to cross a bridge by walking through the protesting which wasn't bad, the biggest thing was that the connecting flight to la ceiba, taca airlines was not operating on the incoming or outgoing flights, from what i understand they hadn't reached an agreement in a contract with the government........actually during the outsing of zelaya there was more media/tv coverage of michael jackson...

Sam - wasn't there a bit of civil unrest happening?  I thought I read where travel was being halted in/out of the country? 

Glad you made it back.
