Cairo, Egypt

blog_april_19_2010_1[1] I must say I’m a little surprised, but Mikey Wier and I are sitting here at Cairo Airport waiting for our domestic flight down to the southern city of Aswan, Egypt near the massive Lake Nasser. We are going to be fishing tomorrow! And to top it off, Brent Dawson (Warpath) is rolling into Cairo in about three hours. Warpath officially could not make the Delta NYC to Cairo flight that Mikey and I flew on last night, so he bought a one-way ticket from San Fran to Amman, Jordan and then to Cairo at the airport! He spent a fortune but I guess it was kind of like, “I need to catch some Nile Perch” and he just flat out bought it. I like his spirit!

That’s about all there is to say on the trip so far. We are a little exhausted from the stress of worrying we wouldn’t make the trip and then of course the 26 hours of flying. That’s all behind us now and hopefully tomorrow night I will be reporting from our camp on Lake Nasser after a great day of fishing.

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!
