When he is not working in his roles as a lawyer and executive, John Kai Lassen enjoys fly fishing in Belize and Africa.
Fly fishing is one of the most exciting ways to catch fish, and it is a hobby that can be pursued all over the world. According to Sport Fishing Magazine, here are some of the top fly fishing destinations:
1) Alphonse Island, The Seychelles: Located in the Indian Ocean, Alphonse Island is about 1,000 miles off the eastern coast of Africa and features a luxury resort that caters to fly fishing enthusiasts. Fly fishers can expect to see an array of exotic fish, including the milkfish and the giant trevally.
2) Ascension Bay, Mexico: Approximately 100 miles south of Cancun, Ascension Bay offers a vastly different experience than the popular tourist city, featuring mangrove estuaries full of snook and tarpon. Most fishing resorts are open year-round.
3) Exmouth, Western Australia: One of the best locations for fly fishers in Australia, Exmouth offers stretches such as the Ningaloo Lagoon, where fishermen can find queenfish, giant parrotfish, bonefish, and more.
