Brian Wiprud fly fishing in Kenya

"Fishing travel is a regular and necessary part of life, and I've angled Belize, Honduras, Florida, Costa Rica, Montana/Idaho, Kenya, Seychelles, Miramachi NB, Nouveau Quebec and the Bahamas. Did you know there's trout fishing in the Sudan? Bhutan? Hawaii? Madagascar? See you there."

"I spend two weeks every year just fishing for shad in on the Upper Delaware and Connecticut Rivers. If you see a red '63 Mercury Comet convertible parked by road or whizzing along NY97, that's me. (Not exactly everybody's idea of a fishing car, but it roll starts, is easy to fix, and with the top down, I can put the rods fully rigged in the back seat.)"
