Resting Before Flyfishing in Cameroon

by | Mar 2, 2019 | fly fishing in Cameroon

fly-fishing-cameroonArriving three days early for a foreign fishing trip isn’t my usual protocol.  But fly fishing the Faro River of Cameroon with my friends of Tourette Fishing was so high on my list I didn’t want to take any chances of being delayed and then missing my internal flights and jeep travel.  So, I’ve been staked out here at the Seamans Mission Hotel in Douala, Cameroon since late Thursday night.


Douala-CameroonI’m extremely glad I came early because of the snow back in the US.  You may have read the blogs about the CA speaking trip last week but the blogs didn’t explain the true stress of the whole car breakdown and snowstorm deal.  I was dreaming of an on time touch down in Cameroon with a few days of solitude many times over but while doubting I’d ever get out of the United States!


nile-perchThose knowing I was arriving so early thought I’d be lonely.  Funny thing is there wasn’t much loneliness.  I made friends quick like you always do when traveling the corners of the world. Then folks that work here at the hotel are always making conversation with me.  They’re curious about an American here to catch and release fish.  And I have these three kittens that keep me far from bored.




CameroonThat’s it for now.  Internet stinks so I haven’t got much email work done that I planned on.  But I have got needed rest.  I’ll sign off now and hit this pretty good looking steak kabob and beer and will have more when I pull out of here for Garoua, Cameroon on March 3.

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!
