Recovery Day in Dubai

blog-April-26-2015-1-jeff-currier-drinking-in-dubaiToday was only the second day I didn’t fish since I arrived in the Middle East on April 3.  Though my friend Nick Bowles, owner and founder of Ocean Active, offered to take Granny and I fishing, we decided it was time for a rest.  And rest we did.


We arrived in Dubai almost two hours late last night.  Instead of landing at midnight we circled in a holding pattern for more than an hour.  We landed and 1:30 AM and cleared customs back into the UAE at 2 AM.  By the time we arrived at Nicks it was 3 AM.  It was a long day from our campsite in Oman.


blog-April-26-2015-2-the-mall-of-the-emiratesWe took the entire day to relax.  Granny read magazines and I checked in on the Cubs (I’m happy here!).  Then I played Fantasy Baseball and did some writing on the blog.  Our only physical activity was when I took Granny to The Mall of the Emirates and showed her the famous indoor ski area (you heard me correct).

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!
