Fly Fishing in Bhutan

blog-May-14-2014-fly-fishing-in-bhutanFriend Mike Dawes and I are leaving for Bhutan in the morning.  We are going as consultants for the World Wildlife Fund.  We have a great assignment – fish the rivers of Bhutan to determine their suitability for fly fishing ecotourism.


Starting Saturday we will fish three days on trout rivers around the Haa Valley.  On Tuesday we’ll head to Royal Manas National Park.  Travel to here will take two days by car through the Himalayan foothills.  Then we’ll float for four days in search of golden mahseer and snowtrout.  When the trip ends, Mike and I will give a presentation to the Prime Minister himself.


I should have internet until the 19th.  Stay tuned for reports.  As always, expect full day by day accounts with photos as soon as I can load them!

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!
