When I was in Baghdad in 2005-2006, there were some guys fly fishing at the Al Faw palace for the carp Saddam had swimming in the palace ponds.

No matter where you could fish, you'd probably end up hooking a 'brownfish'
I would have loved to have seen that. Hopefully someone took some photos!

I mentioned this before, but I thought I'd run it by once again, I'll host a free fly fishing class for some of you returning veterans if you like, anyone interested? Look at what some of the companies are charging for a two day school. This will be free except for your transportation and local lodging (I'm still working on some of the lodging restoration here from Hurricane Charley)

I can make it a one two or even three day school and include some wade fishing trips along with casting, knot tying/leader building, fly tying and general fly fishing instruction.

That's awesome jack, and that is a more than generous offer. I wish I had plans to be in your neck of the woods.
