I don't want to get story heavy but if anyone has questions I will answer them. Our buddy Ed at NoBoundaries Oman runs an awesome lodge that's home to the undisputed largest GT's in the world. For 10 years he has taken guys out and regularly catching GTs over 50kg on poppers. He reached out to us to help expand his land based fishing on fly for a variety of species. We were the 3rd crew he has had that solely fly fished so we were basically a recon group, gathering intel to help him develop a plan for future fisherman. I can tell you guys, Southern Oman is an amazing fishery and mostly untapped. I will have a video soon.

I have been wanting to fish that area, especially for Queenfish. What does the travel entailed from the Dubai Airport?

Yes that’s what Ed said but the GT fishing is pretty damn great year round. I caught one on fly there, it wasn’t very large 14 about. They were seen most days. I was casting at one first day but I had my 9 wt and a crab fly. Another guy had shot at same tide on same section of beach in 2 separate days. Saw others cruising beach out of range. And last day saw some monsters in bay where I caught my small one but out of range.

I believe it has been available for diy, I’m not sure how long folks have been running trips. There is an expat over there ray Montoya who has been fly fishing for permit there for many years, he is on YouTube and also an excellent artist. Yes those were numbers from our trip.
