As a writer and photographer I travel between my life in Toronto, my life in Antigua, and anywhere else my wanderings may take me ... writing my books and enjoying local arts and adventures along the way.

Tales of Eating Tarpon from Locals Fishing at Darkwood

“You have to pull the tarpon (stretch it) when you just catch it” the first young man told me in answer to that question. “Then when it’s cooked there’s more space between the bones”.

A Little Fishin’ at Devil’s Bridge in Antigua

Bridge to the Devil’s lair or not … the dream of catching a wild Antiguan wahoo was still calling me. I baited my hook and cast into the roiling surf … waiting to hook whatever was strong enough to brave those fearful natural forces.

York Island Offshore of Antigua

Today I went out to York Island with Karron, along with another EAG board of directors member named Ashton Williams, and the field technicians Shawn and Tahambay who are always an integral part of the excursions onto the islands.

Finally I captured the Antiguan Mongoose.
