Well it's been months in the planning but the time is finally here for what could be my greatest adventure. This Thursday I hop the first of 4 airplanes on my way to Lamu, Kenya. Lamu is a sleepy fishing village located on a group of islands on the coast, bathed by the Indian Ocean. This is a 10 day hard core fishing trip, pure and simple. Among our targets are the Grander Black Marlin that prowl these waters at this time, plus Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Dogtooth and Yellowfin Tuna, HUGE GT's and many other species.

I'll be meeting up with 4 crazy Norwegians, one of which I work closely with at Mustad. With some luck and good weather it should be quite a trip. Of course I'll be sure to submit an article/report for FAOL. While many of the fish are simply too large for the fly rod, I am bringing 3 set ups and the flies needed to do some damage on the Sails, Dogtooth and GT's.

Stay tuned : )
