Meet your fly fishing guide

Misty Dhillon is an FFI certified casting instructor who is the world authority on Golden Mahseer fly fishing in the Himalayas. For over 20 years, Misty Dhillon has worked alongside the world’s pioneers in expedition documentaries, fly fishing adventure travel, and sporting travel journalists to bring to the world’s attention the elusive Golden Mahseer fishery that is threatened by hydroelectric power and an ever-increasing need for water. 

Misty Dhillon has initiated river conservation in the Himalayas on a grass root level by living in the Himalayan foothills and training India’s first generation to fly fishing guides from local river communities. Encouraging local stakeholders in the remote Himalayan frontier with Nepal to use intentional, catch and release, single barbless hook fly fishing as a regenerative resource for sustainable income through eco-tourism while reconnecting river communities to conservation.  

Having lost his father at the age of 8, Misty used fishing and the outdoors to transform his life from the early of 15. He is hence passionate about using the fly-fishing lens to empower communities, particularly people of color.
