The Return to Mauritius

by | May 11, 2018 | fly fishing Mauritius

It was a challenge to get to the other side of the world but I arrived in Mauritius mid afternoon yesterday where I then settled in to the Address Boutique Hotel in Port Chambly.  I stayed here last year and it’s a cool place to rest up after 40 hours of tiring travel.


At around 3 pm my South African friends and owners of FlyCastaway, Gerhard Laubscher, Ryan Hammond and Tim Babich fetched me.  I was tired but you should never sleep during daylight hours if you intend to beat jetlag quickly.  I muscled through the first hour of visiting then I was awake and well.  We had a few Phoenix Beers and nice dinner with the rest of our group.


When I say “our group”, this is a return trip to St. Brandon’s Atoll where I chased big bonefish and yellow permit last year.  I’m not hosting or working.  I was invited over by the FlyCastaway boys to join them and a few other clients on their vacation to the Atoll.  Coincidentally my friend Terry Graham from Australia is here as well.  I can’t explain how lucky I am to be here!


This will be my last post until May 23.  We’re about to board a yacht for a 30-hour boat ride out into the Indian Ocean and there is no internet.  I’ll be writing daily and will post the day by day accounts upon my return.  And by the way, this is a trip anyone can do and one of the top saltwater fly fishing trips we offer at Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures.

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!
