It's no secret that Southern Oman, the Hallaniyat Islands and the NoBoundariesOman operation there is one of my favourite places in the world. Between 2012 and 2017 I found myself there no less than 7 times, and doing my best to figure how to get there even more often.. Somehow between April 2017 and today, [...]
Some guys, like Johannesburg-based Peter Whittaker, a veteran, globe-trotting angler who is our Lifer in issue 32, seem to have life dialled in.

While putting together issue 2 of The Mission, we've been going through the transcripts of interviews. With, among others, Jako Lucas (aka Capt. Jack) and Swift Fishing Director Carl McNeil. Two comments they [...]
There's nothing that gets a fisherman's blood rushing quite like the colours of a lit up Billfish as it traumatises a baitball of seemingly helpless baitfish.
