Ed had some fun traveling the coast of Mozambique a few months back. He put together these pages about the trip.
The epic goal was to land a Giant Trevally out of a kayak. The trip was spent with Silver King Lodge, five hours north of the capital, Maputo. The guys who lived in country all had their Landcruisers rigged with Jackson Kayaks and camping gear. Ed brought along a bunch of Lamson Waterworks new reels and the team chased around the big fish.
Big thanks to Mike Sudal and James Colburn for everything.
Ed got a chance to go to Cuba and fly fish with Picabo Anglers and see the freshly opening country. With help from the No Business Lodge and Veteran Outdoors, he flew out of Miami direct to Havana with a group of 12 headed for Los Jardines de la Reina, a huge archipelago on the south side of the island.
The group made their way to Ciego and the Avalon II for a 6 day fly fishing excursion like no other. Remote living on the boat and excellent guides made the fly fishing in Cuba fantastic. Lot’s of shots at big bones, juvenile tarpon and permit. The boat itself had great food and a great staff.
All the people throughout Cuba were great, but clearly overwhelmed. The spigot has been turned on at Miami and the Americans are flowing in. The romance that was Cuba will be lost soon. The country will probably be Puerto Rico before too long.
