This January I boarded the Air Canada aircraft and settled in for a long flight.
Two and a half days of travel, 30 hours of actual air time, several airline transfers and a whole lot of hectic running were what I was to expect in my near future.
Knowing this, I settled into my fleece-lined sweats and dove into Bob Hooton’s ‘Skeena Steelhead’ book (a must read by the way… review to come).
I was on my way to Alphonse Atoll in the Seychelles to meet with South African friend and Alphonse fishing guide, James Christmas.
For those who are unfamiliar, Seychelles is an island country consisting of 115 islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean, 930 miles off the coast of Africa (northeast of the island of Madagascar).
