Providence Cancelled

fly-fishingThis evening I canceled my Providence Atoll trip here in the Seychelles.  This was one of the most agonizing decisions I’ve ever had to make in my life, but it’s the right one.  The tropical storm continues to linger and build and will finally reach cyclone size by tomorrow.  Yellow Dog Flyfishing, Fly Castaway nor myself would ever risk putting people in harms way.  This is a massive storm of uncertainty and living on a mothership would be far from smart.


I have a magnificent group of guests with me.  Each traveled 9,000 miles from the USA to be here and no doubt all of them are crushed with disappointment.  But the first question by most has been, “When can we reschedule?”


Seychelles-fishingI’ve now the challenge to help eleven guests change flights and fly home early.  It will be new territory for me but we’ll get things sorted.  As for my travels, I plan to head to Dubai and Oman once my last guests are organized and on their way home.


Stay tuned.  This has been a wild one.

    Can’t think of a lower low… sorry for all you guys. Right call, disappointing but right call. Would be worse if someone got hurt… Live to fight another day!

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!
