We Made It!

by | Oct 31, 2010 | Uncategorized

It was a long 36 hour door to door trip. Actually add 20 hours for me because I drove up to Bozeman, MT on Thur. Anyhow, we are glad to be here and ready to rock. We got in to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania two hours late, just after midnight Dar time. Everyone’s luggage made it and we were pumped up enough to have some dinner and beers in the wee hours this morning here at the SeaCliff Hotel. As you can imagine our schedules are messed up bad. We are 9 hours ahead here. It will take a few days to adjust.

The program for us now is today we are taking a ferry ride to Zanzibar Island and Stone Town. We’ve been advised to either not go or be careful because Tanzanian elections start today. Evidently things can get out of hand particularly in Zanzibar. Whatever, we’re going out there and spending the night there tonight than back to Dar tomorrow night to meet up Tourette Fishing company and Keith Clover.

Should be good. I’ll try to post some pics tonight as long as I keep lucking into Internet access.

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!
