Fly Fish Ethiopia

When you think of fly fishing for trout lots of destinations might come to mind, but I bet you never thought of fly fishing Ethiopia. Apparently it can be a real bargain.

"Hussein said that of the 35 Ethiopian birr ($4 U.S.) one pays for a night in one of the five huts, five goes to the local government, 10 goes to a fund earmarked for hut maintenance and 20 goes to the hut keeper and his or her family. "

You have to respect any country that refers to its currency as the Birr (pronounced Beer)
