One Flight Left

by | Apr 2, 2011 | chicago cubs, madagascar, south africa | 5 comments

We are about done with our 18 hour layover here in Johannesburg, South Africa. It’s a complete flip – flop in time zones so we slept fair at best. I woke up around 4 a.m. and sucked coffee and managed my Fantasy Baseball Teams. Looks like the Chicago Cubs already lost one. Rats! Then I hit the gym here at our hotel and struggled through a work out. It’s tough to do anything after a 15 hour flight but I feel better from it. Now its time to head back to the airport and find our flight to Nosy Be, Madagascar. We get off that plane about 7 p.m. Madagascar time. I doubt I’ll have email access but you just have to check. The next definite entry will be around the April 9th. Until then, hopefully we will be catching fish and meeting our goals.

    Stephen Drake said… I never knew you were a big baseball fan. Come down to Phoenix during baseball season and we can catch a game. Have fun in Madagascar. I’m completely jealous. That’s a place high on my list to visit. Heading to China for 3 1/2 weeks (honeymoon trip) in early May.

    Howdy everyone. Sorry for the delay. We have been playing hard in the boonies of Madagascar. You can only imagine their boonies. This is the first time I’ve had internet and it stinks. THe posts will come in order but only one at a time when I can. Thanks for reading up. Good stories to come!

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!
