The Long Awaited Step into the Seychelles

blog-Dec-2-2014-1-flyfishing-the-seychellesI’m in a time warp after what has already been 45 hours of travel to the complete other side of the world.  I’m exactly twelve time zones ahead of Idaho here in Mahe, Seychelles.  I’m jetlagged and my bio clock is completely upside down.


blog-Dec-2-2014-2-seybrew-beer-of-the-seychellesBut I’m here and so are all the other guys on my hosted trip to the Seychelles.  I’d not met a single one of these guys until today but all seem cool and in fact we’re already in the groove together sipping a few of the local SeyBrew beers on the beach which happens to be right next to the hotel.


blog-Dec-2-2014-3-coral-strand-hotel-seyechellesWe are presently at the Coral Strand Hotel where we’ll overnight.  Then early tomorrow we’ll catch our charter to the small atoll of Farquhar.  We expect a full afternoon of flats fishing tomorrow.  The weather is an incredible 85° with light winds and a few scattered clouds.  If this weather holds all week we should experience some superb flats 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!
