Arrival in Guyana

blog-Oct-31-2014-1-cara-hotel-guyanaIf not for the stopover in Trinidad where Tim Brune and I were required to stay on the plane, the Caribbean Airlines flight from Miami to Georgetown, Guyana wouldn’t have seemed so long.  Instead, the four hour thirty minute flight extended to six and a half hours.  And we unexpectedly were required to sit on the plane during the two hour layover.


But that’s travel and generally the end result is worth it.  Tim and I have just checked into the Cara Hotel.  Despite being tired and its late, we’re about to grab a beer and have a look around.  Ah the curiosities of being in a new country!


blog-Oct-31-2014-2-flyfishing-guyanaWe wont venture too long however because we head for the jungle at 6 AM.  This will be a small plane flight that has us at camp around 9 AM.  We’ll get set up and after orientation and lunch; Tim and I will get an afternoon of fishing


This will likely be the last entry until we get out of the jungle on November 9.  Once out, expect the day by day accounts!

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!
