More than one person has desribed Yelapa as “apocalyptical ” or biblical. Often the reference has to seeing the fish in a flurry and actually jumping out of the water, by the three dozen.

This last season, I heard rumor of a visitor picking a Giant Boa out of a tree, up river. I asked for proof. Months ago, out of the blue, the visitor sent me this photo. I quickly reponded to his email for a reply to why he would pick a Giant Boa out of a […]
