The 8 Best Guided Fly Fishing Trips in the World

Posted by yellowdog on 1/20/20 2:51 PM

Anglers have been exploring distant waters for decades. From the first exploratory fly fishing trips in the jungles of the Amazon to un-mapped atolls for fly fishing for Giant Trevally in the Seychelles, the quest to fish further and further afield is deeply rooted in the souls of many anglers. For some this thirst for adventure is rarely fully quenched, because the next best fly fishing trip is the one yet to be taken.

With over 200 destinations for the best fly fishing trip, it is hard to determine which trip is the best. What might be "best" for one angler isn't for another. Each trip we create is often custom-tailored to each individual angler. This unique ability to only sell what we know--and we know a lot--means we can probably create "the best fly fishing trip" for anyone wanting to fish any of our destinations.

So, whether it is close to home or across the world sight-casting to New Zealand brown trout or seeking a double-digit bonefish on a ahamas fly fishing trip, opportunities exist to experience Eight of the Best Guided Fly Fishing Trips on the Planet.

Yellow Dog’s Thankful List: Why We Are Thankful For Fly Fishing Travel

Posted by yellowdog on 11/25/19 6:00 AM

As the calendar changed from Halloween to November, in many stores pumpkins came down and Christmas trees came up. The holiday spirit is wonderful, but in the rush to start counting down shopping days ‘til Christmas, the ideals of Thanksgiving can be lost in the hype of Black Friday, Shop Small Saturday, and by trying to squeeze it all in before the holiday bumrush begins.

Because we travel the world for a living, we understand the importance of getting away—but traveling to fish is not only a great respite, it is a unique way we can learn about ourselves, family, friends, and other places in the world. Here is Yellow Dog’s List of Why We Are Thankful For Fly Fishing Travel.

LOUISIANA: Part two of Jake Wells' Reflection on the Highlight of His Summer

Posted by yellowdog on 10/14/19 9:23 AM

We join Yellow Dog’s Louisiana Program Director on the second half of his summer trip to Louisiana. Read Part One: Venice – Fishing Capitol of the World for a report on off-shore fly fishing action.

New Orleans – Fun and Food

In the middle of our trip, we built in a free day for ourselves to go into the city and experience the sights, sounds, and the food of New Orleans. Our first stop was the National WWII Museum. It was a humbly experience to say the least, and kindled an appreciation for, “The Greatest Generation.”

We then walked a short distance to the Cochon Restaurant for some of the best Cajun and southern cooking in the city. I’d recommend the fried alligator. Afterwards we walked around the French Quarter including a mandatory stop at Café du Monde for their famous beignets. It was then onto our next leg of the trip.
