Return to Muscat and on to Dubai

blog-April-25-2015-1-sunrise-in-omanGranny’s and my last Omani sunrise was a good one.  Instead of enjoying it from the camp chairs I made coffee and watched as we headed north for Muscat.  We arrived at Ray and Kerry Montoya’s house around noon.


It was sad unpacking our RAV4 rental.  An epic chapter in our lives has come to an end.  Once empty there was nothing but heaps of sand and salt dust on everything.  I hope the car agency doesn’t look underneath and find anything they can charge us for.  We put this car through the test!


Ray and Kerry were out fishing from Muscat and they kindly let us use their house even before they returned.  The first shower in ten days was luxurious and we followed that up with a few cold beers that Ray left us in his fridge.


blog-April-25-2015-2-ray-montoya-in-omanWe just finished up a great night with the Montoya’s with dinner, drinks and stories from our trip.  We are presently on a Swissair flight back to Dubai.  We’ll arrive in Dubai at midnight and should be to my friend Nick Bowles house by 2 AM.  We’ll likely rest up tomorrow but return to our fishing adventures the day after which include Dubai and Musandam with Ocean Active until we begin the long journey home Sunday.

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!
