Intense Travel Week Ends in Africa

blog-Nov-10-2015-1-flying-to-africaI got home from a successful Keys trip late Tuesday night then had a couple days to fine tune a conservation speech about golden mahseer that I gave in San Francisco on Friday night for the Henry’s Fork Foundations Annual Fundraiser.  The talk was held at an amazing old yacht club near Fisherman’s Wharf practically under the Golden Gate Bridge.   The event and speech went very well and I got home late Saturday night.  Then all day Sunday was spent scrambling to pack for three weeks fishing in Africa.


blog-Nov-10-2015-2-granny-currier-africaGranny and I have been traveling since early Monday morning and land in Johannesburg, South Africa in about three hours at 6:28 PM November 10th.  It’s been a long haul but the end is near.  The plan is to overnight in Johannesburg then first thing tomorrow fly to George where we’ll meet up with South African friend Craig Smith.


blog-Nov-10-2015-3-fishing-in-africaWe’ll fish four venues this trip with our South African friends – three different ones in South Africa and the highlight of the trip will be in the small country of Lesotho with my good friends of Tourette Fight it in Africa.  If you read the blog than you know my friends of Tourette because I’ve been on their amazing trips for tigerfish in Tanzania and the flats of the Red Sea off Sudan many times.


Stay tuned for a very interesting set of blogs the next few weeks but as usual, internet is not always available.  I’ll post when I can and I assure you in the end the day by day accounts will all be here.

    Nice Jeff – have a great time in Africa, I’m jealous! Also, sorry to have missed you in SF, maybe next time.

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!
