Travleing the World Isn’t Always a Picnic!

by | May 10, 2018 | St Brandons Atoll

So, you want to be a traveler.  Be sure you have a strong tolerance for stress and a ton of patience.  Shortly before I boarded my first flight for St Brandon’s Atoll I got a text from Air France telling me my flight from Paris to Mauritius was cancelled.  They rescheduled me on a flight two days later which meant I missed the boat ride from Mauritius to St Brandon’s.  Unless I could work something out – the trip was over before it started.



Luckily my rankings are high with Delta (which is who I booked the whole flight with) and I had the nicest lady ever. She spent three hours working every angle on the planet to get me to Mauritius on time before the boat leaves.  She succeeded.  I flew to London last night instead of Paris and am presently at London Heathrow Airport.  Tonight I fly a direct British Airways flight to Mauritius.  There’s one catch however, I fly from London Gatwick Airport not the one I’m at now!   Luckily, I have 9 hours to cross London to Gatwick and check in.


It’s been a headache but it looks like I’ll still be chasing yellow permit!  CLOSE CALL!

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!
