    Casa Vieja Lodge Names Capt. Tred Barta Director of Fishing Operations and Fleet Captain

    [FONT="Arial"][SIZE="2"]Jim Turner and Casa Vieja Lodge announced today that Captain Tred Barta has been named Director of Fishing Operations and Fleet Captain at the world famous Lodge.

    Puerto San Jose, Guatemala, July 8, 2010 -- Casa Vieja Lodge announced today that Captain Tred Barta has been named Director of Fishing Operations and Fleet Captain at the world famous Lodge.

    As an internationally recognized writer, hunter, angler and all around outdoorsman, Captain Barta brings over 30 years of ultra-light tackle fishing, billfish tournament creation and marketing skills to Casa Vieja Lodge. He has hosted Versus TV’s “The Best and Worst of Tred Barta”; founded the Barta Blue Marlin Classic Tournament; the Barta Boys and Girls Billfish Tournament; and raised over $1 million for the IGFA Junior Angler’s Program. In addition, he holds several fishing and bow hunting records.

    Capt. Barta was the only man to ever hold the triple crown of light tackle tuna records: a 65 lb. yellowfin on six pound, a 63 1/2 lb bluefin tuna on 12 pound, and a 215 lb. big eye tuna on 20 pound line. His 38.6 lb. dolphin is the existing world record on six pound fly tippet and is an excellent fly fisherman and instructor.

    Too bad he thinks fly fishers are a-holes. But you gotta admit the guy knows his stuff and isn't afraid to say what's on his mind.
    Life is not like a bowl of cherries. It's more like a jar of ghost peppers. What you eat today might burn your ass tomorrow...
