Posted by yellowdog on 12/3/19 1:13 PM

The angler in your life loves to fish—they talk about it often. But do you know they might also love to travel to fish? Perhaps they often talk about someplace far-away filled with remote waters, big fish, and excellent guides?  Or maybe they dream of catching a certain species? A Giant Trevally, a bonefish, a Golden Dorado, or a wild rainbow trout?

Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures is here to make you a holiday super-star. This season give the angler in your life what they really want: The Gift of Fish. Here is our guide to making sure you look great this holiday season by giving the best gift ever.

Bucket List Trips

If you think your angler “has been there and done that,” think again. Giant Trevally in the Seychelles or Christmas Island, Golden Dorado in South America, giant taimen in Mongolia, or the flats of Cuba are all possible trips about which they constantly day-dream. Yellow Dog is proud to partner with the planet’s best lodges and outfitters offering these exotic trips for species your angler wants to catch.

Overnight Backcountry Float Trips

We’ve been arranging trips for the massive trout in Russia or Alaska for nearly two decades. Add to the list Idaho’s Middle Fork of the Salmon or Montana’s Smith River, and you can send your angler on a remote fishing and floating and camping trip through the wilds of Chile or Argentina, the majestic lands of Mongolia, the Kamchatka Peninsula, or British Columbia.

First-Time Saltwater Fly Fishing Trips

For anglers who’ve caught plenty of trout in the lower 48, it may be time they venture to someplace warm this winter and pursue any of the exciting saltwater species. From bonefish in the Bahamas to tarpon in Mexico, our options of trips for anglers new to saltwater fishing are as varied as the destinations we feature. Cuba, Mexico, Belize, the Bahamas, Honduras, the Seychelles, and Christmas Island all feature something for anglers new to saltwater flats fishing.


Goal-Oriented Trips

A permit on a fly rod, a grand slam, or a ten-pound New Zealand brown trout. These are all angling accomplishments worthy of note. You may know of your angler’s desire to accomplish either of these. If you don’t, they want to catch these even if they don’t admit it. Let our expertise make you look great by sending your angler to accomplish one of their angling goals.


Trips for Families or Non-Anglers

There are also trips ideally suited for anglers and their non-angling companions and family members as well. Whether it is an overnight trip on one of our specially permitted trips or a winter or spring break getaway to sunshine and warm waters, a gift to a family-friendly fishing destination is on the whole family can enjoy.

The upcoming holiday season is a marathon and not a sprint—with office parties, school recitals, preparing for the in-laws, and more—but get a head start this season by giving the angler in your life what they really want…a trip to fly fish the world.
