Todd Staley – Fishing Director
Todd carved his niche in the fishing community as a lure manufacturer and outdoor journalist specializing in light tackle in Florida and Costa Rica. He has been published in many magazines and newspapers in both countries and invented a lure that was banned from tarpon tournaments in Boca Grande, Florida as an unfair advantage over live bait. The late Archie Fields brought Todd to Costa Rica nearly a decade ago to manage his famous tarpon resort on the Caribbean coast. Since Archie's death he has managed Golfito Sailfish Ranch and worked with Americana Sportfishing at the Hotel del Rey. He is a world record holder and has guided several others to world records.

Beau Williams - General Manager
Beau was raised in Northern California to have a great respect for nature and the outdoors, always preferring to be outside whenever possible. He soon encountered the habit forming excitement of adrenaline sports such as lacrosse, football, and motocross, and from then on out, attempted to incorporate such emotion into his daily life as frequently as possible. Beau went on to study Psychology and Anthropology at Chico State University in California. Upon graduating Beau began working at Crocodile Bay Resort as the Eco Tour Director, where he was able to embrace his love of the outdoors and under the teachings of many of the local guides, increase his appreciation for both the plant and animal life of the Rainforests of Costa Rica. In 2004 he left the Eco Tour Department and became General Manager, where he is better able to focus on every facet of the clients experience.

Meet Brian Wong, Reservation's Manager at Crocodile Bay Resort. Brian's interest and passion for catching fish started early on at the age of 12, transitioning from a young fisherman to an angler within just a few years. At the age of 20, he purchased half ownership of the iconic Lyle's Tackle and International Travel Service located in the heart of "The Wine Country", Santa Rosa California. Due to a failed partnership, he took on full ownership and continued to run the business until he was asked to relocate and decided that it was time to move on and closed the business after nearly 3 decades. Being of service to fisherman, fisherwomen and anglers from around the globe has always been his passion. Now here's the main reason why Brian was asked to join the sales team here at Crocodile Bay! For the last 40 years, Brian has educated, instructed and by the way has acheived a master's level in fly casting instructions, escorted individuals and large groups to numerous fishing and hunting destinations worldwide! Brian's experience, expertise and knowledge is very apparent! See for yourself!1.800.733.1115 extension #112
