I've been to Cosmoledo, Astove, Alphonse, Desroches, and I'm quite familiar with fly fishing in the Seychelles. The island of Providence was missing from my collection, and I had always wanted to visit there. In September, Justin McCarthy spontaneously called me and asked if I wanted to join him and his Russian friends for the opening week of fishing on the Maya Dugong on Providence. There were still two spots available. It was a fantastic opportunity, so after a brief discussion with my friend Christoph, we accepted the offer right after the phone call.
