Looking Ahead to Fly Fishing in Sudan

blog-March-6-2014-1-jeff-currier-flyfishing-for-nile-perchI left a lot of folks wondering what they’ve been waiting for last night after giving my “Fly Fishing Through Midlife Heaven” PowerPoint presentation for the Upper Bear River Chapter of Trout Unlimited in Evanston, Wyoming.  In this show I talk about sticking your neck out a bit and following your dreams instead of following the all-American tradition of working till you die.  I took the crowd of cabin fevered anglers all over the world for some crazy fish.  About the only fish I didn’t show was this Nile Perch from Egypt.


The talk ended around 8 PM but after questions and packing it was 9 PM.  I drove all the way home and walked in the door about 1 AM.  I have one more speech next Tuesday in Spokane, Washington where I’ll present “Fly Fishing in Jackson Hole”.  Then I’m done speaking until I head back east again in April.


blog-March-6-2014-2-flyfishing-in-dubaiI’ve been to eighteen States already this year but I haven’t left the country.  Worse, the only time I’ve cast a fly rod this year has been for casting demonstrations.  That’s all about to change.  Two weeks from today my pal Mike Lasota and I will be on a plane for Dubai. Yes, Dubai.  We’ll have two days there.  If anyone can set me up with some fishing ideas or better yet, a guide, it would be greatly appreciated.


blog-March-6-2014-3-flyfishing-the-red-sea-sudanDubai is our stopping point en route to Sudan.  On March 24th we’ll meet up with my South African friends Rob Scott and Mark Murray.  Rob is the owner of Tourette Fishing – Fight it in Africa, and Mark is one of his top guides.  Rob hosted me in the film “Connect” in 2010.  Backtrack to November to find me fishing for tigerfish in Tanzania with Mark.  The four of us and a couple of their friends will be pushing off the coast of Sudan for a seven day exploratory trip to the Nubian Flats in the Red Sea.  Rob and Mark have both explored here before and say the potential is unbelievable!


Time to start packing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!
