RYAN DEITRICK

USA Kayak Fishing Saltwater

Born and raised in San Diego, California; the ocean has always played an important role in Ryan’s life. His earliest memories are of those California beaches spanning between Point Loma and Camp Pendleton. Ryan took a leap of faith twelve years ago and moved to Costa Rica to be closer to the warmer part of the Pacific Ocean. He’s spent the last decade surfing and fishing and is extremely grateful that during that time his daily plans have depended on tides times and swell forecasts. Ryan credits most of fishing knowledge to his time spent as a mate on the Wingman in the Los Sueños Marina in Costa Rica. He started kayak fishing during 2020. He combined his love of kayak fishing and his knowledge of local waters in 2022 to form Pacific Kayak Fishing in Jaco, Costa Rica, where he is currently the full time owner/operator. Ryan is extremely humbled to be a part of the team and is looking forward to learning from such an elite group of anglers.
