A Month in the Salt Here I Come!

blog-April-1-2015-1-jeffcurrier-flyfising-the-middle-eastI’ve been chewing my nails for a week.  I’ve been scheduled to return to the Nubian Flats of Sudan since last October.  I applied for the difficult to get Travel VISA in November and when I woke up this morning I still didn’t have it.  I leave for Dubai tomorrow and plan to continue on for Sudan on Monday.  But it’s impossible without the VISA.  This morning’s coffee was anything but relaxing.


But my friends of Tourette – Fight it in Africa came through for me as always.  At 9 AM I received my VISA via email and I’m officially ready to go back.



blog-April-1-2015-3-flyfishing-with-tourette-fishingYou may remember I was part of a Tourette exploratory to the Red Sea in Sudan last March (scroll down here to read the 2014 day by day accounts).  The fishing adventure was incredible so when I was invited to return I said yes without hesitation.  I’m packed and ready and as pumped as one can be.


blog-April-1-2015-4-dubai-fly-fishing-ocean-activeThis year, I’ll be joined by my friend Mike Lasota.  Like last year, I’ll be fishing out of Dubai over the weekend with Nick Bowles, founder of Ocean Active before heading to Sudan. After, instead of returning home, I’m hanging in the Middle East for another three weeks.  I’ll meet Granny in Dubai then we’re traveling to Oman to explore some waters barely touched by fly fishers.


I’ll be posting my day by day accounts of this entire trip.  As always, the best fishing locations on the planet have poor or no internet access.  I’ll post when I can and won’t miss a day even if I need to post some after the trip.  Stay tuned for what should be an extraordinary month of blogs!

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
