Fred, You are always welcome to come join us anywhere we travel. I think Hannah has enough head room for you. I just realized I put a little more than 2007 in post. I get so damn excited and we consider everything from start of trip all the way to NZ one major section of the journey so hell it will be November 2008 when we get to NZ.
I'm going to work something out with Juro later in Spring where I can just send him a CD or an e-mail with up dates and some pics and a story or two. Flytalk will be our only public reporting as I have known everyone here for so long, not crazy about all the folks with websites that are sailing around the world. Sailing, surfing and flyfishing around the world is just not a rare thing anymore it is just a big deal for the family, a bit of a personal challenge. Time to get skinny and healthy again like in the old days.

Jez...Is October Caddis, aka Warren Buffet? I do a fair amount of island-hopping, but I'm drooling over the venues you have planned.

Have you thought about the fishery in northern Australia, specifically the Gulf of Carptentaria? I was there in April and believe it is one of the best in the world for longtails and spaniards.

Good on you!

Fred you need to be here now!
I have been learning fly fishing and been out only 4 times now but every morning and afternoon they are rising by the hundreds in my neck of the woods. Sure makes the heart flutter. I haven't picked up my spinner since I was introduced to fly fishing and lovin every minute of it!
I lucked up and got my first one on a fly this evening, too bad it got dark for my enthusiam waned. LOL

Jim,
No Warren Buffet here, been wanting to do this from the time I was 6 years old. Guess I have saved my pennies for a long time now. Austrailia is a long time away so have not done any plans for the second section of the trip. But we will be going through the Torres straits and hope to spend some time in Darwin before moving on. Austrailia has become so hard for people sailing to enter the country now that I wonder if it is even worth it. The hoops one must jump through make it not a fun place to visit.
I know fishing is great up in N. Austrailia from what I hear so I will be looking into it eventually. Thanks for the tips.

Crystal NZ,
What part on NZ you from? I spent 6 months fishing there way back in 1972. Wish you could have seen how good it was way back then I don't remember ever getting a trout under 3 pounds. And the Sea Run Browns on the NW coast of the South island at every river mouth were scary, BIG is all I can say.

Only thing definitely booked so far is first week of February on Andros.
I wanted to go to Alphonse Island in the Seychelles for the last opportunity before it closes but the tides are bad for most of the available slots (crucial at that location).
I will probably visit Los Roques and Cuba again before the summer.
In June I am planning to visit Cape Cod,
July will probably see me in Norway and August in Iceland or vice versa.
In September I will try and fish either Gaspé or the Miramichi.
After that I am not sure but probably another trip to Los Roques and/ or Cuba.


Pete

Pete,

Why is Alponse closing? Is that whole part of the world being taken away from us or what!

The British have destroyed the Chagos Archipelagos along with the help of the CIA and made it all most impossible to go there. As of two days ago to get your vessel into Chagos requires a $500 pass payed in advance. Also a charge per person that is very high. I'm a strong believer in laws to protect the enviroment and the native people but this is going too far. Besides the Brits had the gall to kick the native peoples of the Islands out long ago thru trickery and won't let them back.

Hi October Caddis
The closure of Alphonse Island is because the Island Development company (Owners) have sold it to another organisation who intend to convert it into a super duper luxury resort. It will apparently reopen in 2008. There are talks about builing a fishing lodge on St. Francois at some time in the future.

In the long term it probably means that one of the most expensive locations will become even more expensive.

Pete

a Point of Order here :

actually, the UK Govt (through the High Court) ruled last May that islanders could return to any island in the archipelago, with the exception of Diego Garcia which is a US Military airbase on UK soil and leased to the United States until 2016.

The establishment of the airbase and the relocation of islanders was at specific the request of the US Government as they needed an indian Ocean base to monitor the Soviet Union in the Cold War.

So although we Brits may have acted appallingly since 1965, once again it was at the behest of our bigger brother

Guernseybass,

When our our brothers across the lake get it and not listen to us over here?

You got to stop letting us kick you around. I hope the locals find away to make a life back in thier homeland they sounded like truely wonderful people. Spy Island (AKA diego Garcia) is a just a place for us to make sure we keep control over a region of the world that don't want us there.

I am located in Central Hawkes Bay region, East Coast North Island. D.O.C. has done a great job stocking the lakes and streams in this region and it is paying off with rainbows and brownies over 8 lbs in deep pool under the rapids.


We are going through somewhat of a dry spell at the moment so streams are low and clear as glass. We go out most every afternoon now that the mayfly hatch is on. 7pm they start to rise feeding, then with in the next hour to dark they are splashing loudly.

We have been going to the Wiapawa and Tuki Tuke river mostly (only 5minutes from our house)for everytime we go we see absolutely hundreds ranging in the 1-3 lb size.

In the Tuki it is so overstocked since catch and release is the norm, there aren't many people that are taking any out for eating.

Catch and release also has got them wary of humans so fishing is done by stalking for the big ones, which lie at the base of rapids and flustrating to see them and they won't bite anything presented to them. I call these educated fish LOL

When over this way give me a holler and my husband and myself will show you some good fishing just for fun

Just back from Miami where I squeezed my first days fishing of the year in on the 2nd Jan. Mainly a family thing though so limited fishing.

Apart from the usual domestic fishing in southern England my plans so far are;

Weipa, Queensland Australia for three weeks in April.

Five days in Ireland in May

Ten days on the Cape in June

That's the first half of the year sorted, still need to think about the remainder.
