Travel Haiku - Fishing in Seychelles


Seychelles fishing
my first fish dances
in the north west wind

Seychelles fishing
my first fish plays
with the wind

Seychelles fishing
my first fish orchestrates
the wind

Seychelles fishing
our lines move
against the winds

The Seychelles, off the east coast of Africa, is an intoxicating archipelago of 115 islands, where it's easy to slip into deep relaxation each day on the beach. But beyond the rhythmic wave breaks, out on the flats, some of the best fly-fishing in the world awaits. Fishing season here is governed by the trade winds, and during February, when the winds blow from the northwest, the calm seas make for excellent fishing conditions. Bonefish are particularly abundant this time of year, though you might also hook dorado, wahoo, yellow tuna, and marlin. Guides are plentiful and relatively inexpensive.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
