Dream Destinations?

If you had the opportunity to go on a fly fishing adventure to any place on earth where would you choose to go?

Personally I think I would choose to go Peacock Bass fishing on the Amazon. Not just for the fishing, but also for the diversity of plants, animals and culture that I could see. I think that would be the ultimate trip. Maybe one day!

In 1972/3 got to fish many island flats in the Indian Ocean while sailing on a friends boat. We fished and surfed from one atoll to the next and rarely ran into anyone at all. Some of those places are now known and are fished by commercial guides but most are unfished or kept secret and they are now in dangerous waters with lots of outlaws or pirates who don't play nice. But I would love to go back and see if things have changed much.

Another place would be the 100 miles on either side of the Amazon River Delta. Have a feeling that the tarpon and snook fishing and god only knows what else would be the very best. Same goes for the mouth of the Congo River in Africa.

Just getting the world atlas out at night and looking at all the places I've missed in my travels gets the adventure blood flowing. What about the waters off N. korea? Now that would be a fishing adventure that I may be a bit too old to try.

My #1 trip of a lifetime: Mongolia for Taimen on dry flies

In the meantime...

FWFF: Alsaska 2-week wilderness drift/camp trip for whatever we can find - preferably big artic char.

SWFF: Seychelles for a 50# + Trevally on a popper

Gabon...

Thats in Africa for Tarpon and many other things that swim in the heat. Reality is the heat would probably kill me, oh well one less rod on the river, as they say.

I'm a simple guy

I think the salmonids win, probably somewhere on the Kola Peninsula. Somewhere with my friend Per Stadigh as he's "scouting" an empty section of a river before they send the clients in ....

Talking I'm even easier....

With several feet of snow on the ground, the temperature just above zero (will go below tonight), the wind howling, and not having been out fishing for over three weeks now, I'm getting cabin fever! Just a simple trip to my local stream would be HEAVEN right now, and a REAL dream trip!!!!!

Only 73 more days until April 1!

BobK.

The Kola Peninsuala and Chile for the steahead that are found in some of the rivers are my top two dream destinations.

My 2 Cents

Good evening,
By far and away, it would be Scotland and Ireland. A walking tour with no time limit. Thank you, I'm there!

Thumbs up Dream trip #2

Some place WARM...

It's 8 degrees here in Andover, Ohio (20 miles from lake erie) with a -2 degree wind chill.:eyecrazy:

I could see myself fly fishing Hawaii or Guam, just my luck all I could get would be Bikini Atoll, it's HOT there.

If I am to freeze, then I want to go to the Tunguska River in Siberia or Lake Vostok in Antarctica (bring an ice pick). :hehe:
