Glimmer Man – Abner Marin featured on This Is Fly


Rumour has it that these guides were the best in the country, if not the Caribbean. Local legends if you will: Men who were literally born into the job. Generations of fathers, sons and brothers have been drawn to the sea. One particular family, the most famous, is master of their realm. […]
Tricks are learned, fish are found and fish are lost but you still just sit and listen. This is the life of a protégé.[…]
Abner is this planet’s finest bone fisherman, without equal! This is quite a statement considering the number of saltwater anglers out there but it is true. […]
A former bartender turned guide Abner can credit his move from the dark side to one person; Mr. Carlos is the godfather of la familia and this humble man started it all. I think any man 69 years old, who still poles clients around on a daily basis, is damn cool! We should all be so fortunate.
