The Emirate of Dubai is the second largest of the seven United Arab Emirates; a country formed in 1971 that is a federation of seven separates emirates (which by definition is a political territory that is ruled by a dynastic Islamic monarch-styled emir). With a population of over 2.1 million, Dubai is the largest of the seven United Arab Emirates. Islam is the official religion of the UAE and Arabic is the official language, although English, Urdu and Hindi languages are widely spoken. English is the official language of business and education, and most people in Dubai speak the language.
 
Size and modern development have been synonymous with Dubai, as the emirate continues to build the first, largest and the biggest construction projects in the world. Dubai’s dynamics are always transient and ever changing, with a seemingly constant urge to always construct something better and bigger than the previous. First there was the city’s famous Palm Island, which shortly was dwarfed by the larger World Island. Burj Al Arab at one time seemed incredibly tall, and then the skyscraper Burj Khalifa cropped up, distancing itself by becoming the tallest building in the world. Dubai constantly dwells in a never-ending effort to magnetize tourists to a world of modern attractions and unheard of luxuries.
 
Although the emirate strictly safeguards its traditional Muslim practices, it allows space for other religions to breathe, a rare quality amongst the conservative Arab world. Thankfully, it has been successful in shielding itself from extremism, something that is much needed for this society to survive. Today, Dubai has emerged as a cosmopolitan metropolis that has grown steadily to become a global city and a business and cultural hub of the Middle East and the Persian Gulf region.
 
But the best part of all of this is that Dubai has some truly amazing fly fishing right in the middle of all of city’s luxury and mind-blowing attractions.
