The day had finally come. Our long awaited, Nepalese River expedition through active tiger country was finally here. After hours of pre trip interviews, prep videos, virtual one-on-one zoom calls, map sharing, checklist checking, and a virtual Golden Mahseer Mahseer fly tying session, we were finally on our way to fish in the heart of Nepal’s Royal Bardiya National Park.

Emotions ran high as I departed from Washington DC and was finally Kathmandu bound. Remarkably there weren’t any delays, but I was receiving reports that our river was flooded due to an untimely bout of late monsoons. After all these years, and all of the build up, we were heading into floodwaters for our river expedition!
