Mother Nature isn’t always Fair

SeychellesI’m in Mahe, Seychelles today and have been here as host of a Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures trip since Sunday afternoon.  I came early to guarantee my arrival (winter storm flying through USA can be unpredictable) and also to be fresh when my eleven guest arrive to fish with me at Providence Atoll.  The bad thing however is that I shouldn’t be here now because its Tuesday afternoon on this side of the world and we should be fishing!


The scheduled plan was that we were supposed to catch our charter flight out to the fishing early this morning.  The flight and trip have been postponed. There’s an out of season cyclone brewing and forecasted to give Providence Atoll a direct hit on Thursday.


Sam-VigneriThis is obviously a very disappointing situation for everyone.  It’s especially awful for me right now because its me that invited everyone along.  But this is life as a world traveling fly fisher.  Mother Nature can be cruel sometimes and we must simply be glad to be alive.


As of now, we are hoping to fly in on Friday which would give us six days of fishing instead of the original dream nine day trip I planned.  But at this point we would all be delighted with six days at Providence.  Best of all, my guests are being great sports about this and we are going to have a good time here in Mahe for a few days!


More to come this week.  You can follow this threatening storm at  Be sure to slide the forecast ahead using the bar on bottom through upcoming dates.

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!
