Rest Day in Dubai

blog-April-14-2015-1-burj-khalifa-dubaiSaltwater fly fishing trips beat you up in the “good” way.  They can be exhausting.  Add in some rugged weather and bus travel across a place like Sudan followed by a four hour flight back to Dubai – I was wrecked today.


To add to yesterdays big travel day from the Scuba Libre in Sudan back to Dubai, Granny met me in Dubai.  She got in to Dubai from the States just before me and bless her heart, had energy to head directly to an English Pub and we sucked a few late night brews.  We had much to celebrate – tomorrow night she and I are headed to Oman for three more weeks of saltwater fly fishing!


blog-April-14-2015-2-granny-currier-in-dubaiAfter a fun day kicking around Dubai we are presently boarding a Swiss Air flight for Muscat, Oman.  Its 11 PM.  We should get there in two hours – around 1 AM tomorrow.  Stay tuned for what I hope is a safe and fish filled adventure!

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!
