All Great Journeys come to an End – Hurry up and Book the Next – Farquhar!

by | Dec 7, 2016 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

When a long-awaited trip comes to an end its sad.  I booked this Yellow Dog Hosted trip to Farquhar in the Seychelles back in October 2015.  Seems like yesterday and now it’s over.  Life is passing way too fast.  Which is exactly why I’ll keep doing as many of these trips as my time allows.


I awoke early this morning and made a few casts off the back of the Maya’s Dugong then reeled it in.  Our fishing wasn’t what we expected but after putting this blog together, the group caught numerous amazing fish.  It’s been an excellent trip with one of the best group of folks you can imagine.


I’m almost certain I will return to Farquhar around the same time in 2017.  For next trip the rebuilt guesthouse will be open and ready. While the Maya’s Dugong was a great platform due to the 2015 cyclone, the new accommodation promises to be comfortable, spacious and easy.  Already some of the guys on this trip asked for first dibs meaning the trip will fill fast.  If you’re interested contact me sooner rather than later.


This wild blog run hasn’t ended.  Sammy and I are flying to Dubai at midnight arriving there at 4:20 AM tomorrow.  We should be chasing queeny’s by 7 AM with my friend Nick Bowles.  Then later in the week we’ll be exploring the flats of Abu Dhabi.  Be ready. . .


Enjoy a few last photos from Farquhar 2016

Our GT fishing was slow but Darrel put one more on the board yesterday.

Lance dredged up the most unusual catch of the week – one of many species of goatfish (yes Lance, I’m jealous!).

Sammy didn’t get his GT (yet) but his array of species has been unbelievable – a spectacular bonefish.

Tom with a stunning bluefin trevally off the beach.

John with a hefty spangled emperor.

Good luck catching a green jobfish on the fly other places around the world – Steve.

Skip with a monster yellowlip emperor fish!

The GT’s were hiding.  We’ll get em next time – African marbled grouper.

Thanks for following the blog!

Join me next trip!

Getting to these amazing places and catching unfathomable fish doesn’t happen without the greatest sponsors a fishing bum could have.  Thankyou – Yellow Dog Flyfishing AdventuresR.L. Winston Fly RodsBauer Fly ReelsSimmsScientific AnglersYetiCosta SunglassesKate’ Real Foods

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!
