In my last post I mentioned to stay tuned for the biggest adventure of the year, well tomorrow night I should be on the way to the Seychelles to host back to back Yellow Dog Flyfishing trips followed by some vacation time in Dubai and Oman with my friend Nick Bowles of Ocean Active.  It’s been hell getting to this point with the crazy year of house selling, numerous travels all while dealing with constant Covid regulations, but the day has come.


flyfishing-travelThe adventure takes me from Boston to Paris tomorrow eve where I have a brutal 12 hour layover.  But by the time everyone is deep in their turkey I should be airborne for Mahe, Seychelles where I’ll arrive Friday morning.  I’ll have a nice relaxing weekend while five of my guests fly in.  Then Monday morning the six of us fly a charter to the famous, Astove Atoll, where many consider the best saltwater fly fishing on the planet exists.

We only have two guided fishing days on Astove.  But that’s ok.  On Dec 2 five more of my guests meet us on Astove and then we take a two hour boat ride to another famous fishing atoll, Cosmoledo.  We have a full week on Cosmo and we’ve been looking forward to this trip for more than two years!


I don’t want to think about these two trips ending but on December 9 we return to Mahe.  While most my folks head home I’m heading for Dubai to meet up with my friend Nick Bowles.  I’m not sure the plan from there but Nick always has a trick up his sleeve.  I suspect were heading down to Salalah to play with the amazing Africanus permit.  I’ll return to the US on December 16 then onward to Jackson Hole to pick up my Granny and drive her and her car back to NH for Christmas.


I will have very little internet after this weekend but as usual, I’ll be writing and posting my day by day accounts as I can.

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!
