One of those dreams has been to do some sort of exotic trip to either Alaska or Patagonia and to cruise the inside passage and fish for large fish and generally get up close and personal (in a dignified, gentrified manner) with the natural order of these places.
Previously, I thought that one of the small cruise/adventure outfits would fit the bill -- the right balance between fly fishing (for me) and hiking/adventuring/etc. for the family. Something relatively modest in an area where things are friggin' expensive.
But now Orvis has taken the dream to a whole new level. Why skulk about on a motor yacht when you can skulk about in a motor yacht with, not one, but two helicopters. And a "fleet of jet boats and Zodiacs". And "9 fly-fishing guides and 3 naturalists". And a "chef and sommelier....to nourish the body and spirit". Do they also have yoga?
My body and spirit need nourishing. Anyone will tell you that.
I think I've found a new dream. I've been far too modest.
|Heli-fishing. Is there any other way?|
This is gonna cost me a bundle and Ann has already given me "the look" when I suggested we use the boys' college fund. You can send donations to PayPal via the Contact Me link above.
