Bad Elbows and Broken Boats in Oman

fish-southern-omanWith a broken boat and bad flare up of tennis elbow or whatever I have going on in my arm, today was a good day for a break.  Sammy and I are at the Juweira Boutique Hotel and its nice.  There are restaurants and bars and today we relaxed and relished in it.


OmanThere’s also a lot of water around.  It’s a system of channels and walkways to make the area look nice.  I couldn’t help myself but to grab a rod and make a few casts.  It was a nice way to kill an afternoon.  I caught only one fish but it was this MT – mini trevally.


OmanWord is that the boat is fixed and we’ll be back on the water here the next two days before heading to another part of Oman on Saturday.  Tomorrow we’ll go out with one of Nicks boatmen from Dubai, Nuan and one of Yousef’s mates, Amhed.  For now it’s back to the pool and bar!

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!
