Why We Are... Who We Are


Our Mission

The mission of Wanderlust Flyfishing Adventures is to provide safe and enjoyable international angling services for our guests. It is always our policy to do so in the most professional and good-humored manner possible. We believe that global angling travel is one of the most rewarding endeavors that can be experienced not only because of the exciting fishing opportunities but because of the friendships and relationships that blossom along the way. If you share our philosophy, please join us on an adventure you will never forget!


Bryant Dunn - Outfitter

Having worked as an outfitter and guide for 25 years, Bryant has pioneered several Himalayan and southeast Asian river systems with flyrod in tow. With 50 countries and six continents to his credit, Bryant loves nothing more than sharing remote fisheries with his guests. When he is not outfitting anglers in the most unique and majestic fisheries in the world, Bryant can be found working on his non-profit organization, Himalayan Rivers United, and running his stateside business, Sun Valley Outfitters, in the American Rocky Mountains.

Himalayan Rivers United: Non-Profit Organization

We recommend HRU, a non-profit organization working to promote river conservation in the Himalayas.

How You Can Get Involved - Join HRU in the Himalayas!

Himalayan Rivers United believes that there are many effective ways to promote positive change. However, it is our approach to do much of our work on the ground with the people who are most directly affected. Therefore, each year, HRU hosts volunteer visits to our focus areas. Volunteers are responsible for the cost of their travel expenses but HRU will provide all logistics and leadership. By offering this service to our volunteer contributors, HRU benefits the indigenous populations in a face-to-face manner that is intended to maximize our impact. If traveling to the Himalayas and connecting with local people in a powerful and meaningful way is attractive to you and your lifepath, join us! For more information, contact us here.


Not everyone has the time or energy to travel around the world on behalf of important non-profit efforts. But you can still make a huge difference! By making a financial contribution, you can help to promote these important issues and affect change in the Himalayas today!

Travel Insurance and Emergency Medical Coverage Links

Securing Travel Insurance is an excellent way to protect your globetrotting budget in case of sickness, hurricanes, earthquakes, flight cancellations or any unforeseen act of God or Mother Nature! We highly recommend it! Emergency medical and evacuation coverage is also a way to assure the best possible outcome in any unexpected emergency, especially when traveling to remote corners of the globe.
