Waypoints Podcast: #15 NICK BOWLES – Fly Fishing the Desert – Queenfishing in the UAE

November 13, 2019

Acrobatic queenfish, manmade reefs, massive skyscrapers and indoor ski areas are only a few of the things that make Dubai one of the most unusual destinations in the world of fly fishing. Nick Bowles, founder and owner of Dubai’s first fly fishing operation and outfitting business, Ocean Active Fly, walks us through his journey of establishing fly fishing in the UAE. Nick also discusses adventures in Oman and Yemen in pursuit of three different species of permit, milkfish, GT’s and many other unique species. A stop-over in Dubai en route to other Indian Ocean destination has become an essential add-on trip for anglers looking for something completely “different,” and Nick and his team are the very best at what they do. This episode with Nick provides listeners with great stories of fishing in the Middle East and inside information to consider Dubai as part of their next angling adventure.
