Half Way to Fly Fishing Paradise – the Seychelles

blog-Dec-1-2014-flying-emiriates-to-dubaiTravel was hard yesterday.  The stress of flight cancellation fear from Jackson Hole to Salt Lake City from the terrible storm we were having kept me awake for 36 hours from Friday afternoon till Sunday morning.  I couldn’t even drive to Salt Lake City to by pass my JAC to SLC connection because of a road closure.  Anyhow, I made it out yesterday morning then connected SLC to Los Angeles.  Once in LA I relaxed and had a nice lunch in the international terminal.


Last night I took the 16 hour direct flight on Emirates all the way to Dubai.  This is my second trip through Dubai this year.  (If this is news, you need to check out my fishing blog from Dubai back in March.)  What was special about last night was that I flew on this Airbus 380-800 jet.  This is larger than a Boeing 747 and I believe it’s the largest commercial jet in the world.  Notice the double deck goes the entire length of the plane.  Just to give you an idea the size, I was in row 80 and I was not in the far back of the plane!


I’m presently in Dubai and in four hours catch a 5 hour flight to Mahe, Seychelles.  Once I load this blog I’ll track five of my clients that are hopefully in the airport here somewhere.  In case you’re not up to date, I’m doing an emergency host job to the Seychelles for Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Adventures.  Be ready for a blog about some incredible saltwater fly fishing!

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!
