Customer of the Month Features John Maysak
Fishermen’s Source customer and lifelong angler John Maysak was first introduced to fishing by his father at the young age of 5 chasing blue gills on the Potomac River in Washington, DC back in the mid 60’s. As a teen he moved on to Largemouth and Smallmouth bass sneaking into local country clubs to poach their ponds as well as traveling further upstream to fish the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers around Harper’s Ferry, WV.
At the age of 30 he moved to Big Sky, MT in 1993 to become a functioning ski bum building custom ski chalets during the week and playing on the weekend. In the process he became addicted to fly fishing for trout spending 14 years exploring all the streams of western Montana and Idaho with his drift boat and faithful fishing partner Portal, a shepherd/wolf hybrid that loved fishing almost as much as John.
To escape the cold Montana winters John began exploring international options for his vacations. Cuba at Avalons for bonefish and tarpon, Venezuela and Mexico for pelagics, and finally the Pacific coast of Costa Rica where he has been traveling for the past 18 years. In 2012 he bought a lot in the surfing/yoga mecca of Playa Guiones in the town of Nosara, CR. In the fall of 2015 he completed construction of his dream house La Casa de Azules: The House of Blues (Blue Marlins that is!). The house is a short 8 minute walk to the beach and all amenities are within easy walking distance. It’s perfect for a group of fishermen, a family, or up to 3 couples if the women want to do other things while the men fish. A modern kitchen is perfect for cooking up your catch. There are 3 bedrooms, 2-1/2 baths, and a private pool.
With his vast knowledge of the area, and having been friends for many years with the local captains and mates, John is well suited to helping plan a fishing trip of a lifetime for any size boat or budget while staying at one of the nicest houses in the area.
