Happy Thanksgiving!

Seychelles-fliesWhat do you have cooking for Thanksgiving?  Most likely it’s a turkey.  Here at the Currier house I’m cooking up my fly assortment for the next three weeks.  I’m hosting a Yellow Dog Seychelles trip to Providence Atoll December 3-13.  Then I return to fish in Dubai and Oman with my friends Nick Bowles and Sammy Vigneri through December 19.  As long as this dang elbow holds up this should be an epic 18 days of fabulous saltwater fly fishing.

Providence-AtollMy actual departure will be tomorrow morning so I’ll be eating some turkey today.  My flight schedule is from Pocatello to Salt Lake City to Paris to Dubai then down to Mahe, Seychelles.  I arrive in Mahe Sunday afternoon and layover till Tuesday morning.  Tuesday I meet my folks and we fly 2 hours south to Farquhar Atoll and board the Mayas Dugong mothership.  Then another 6-8 hours boat ride up to Providence Atoll where we’ll fish for nine days.  This is one of the world’s most remote destinations!

Mayas-DugongThere is no internet on the Mayas Dugong so this could be my last post until I’m back to civilization.  I will try to report from Mahe before our charter, but last time there the internet was a joke.  Regardless of when my next post is, you can count on my day by day reports to load upon return.  Expect them to be incredible!

Don’t forget my fish art for “Gifts for the Angler that has Everything” and my new fish decals!

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!
