The seeds for The Himalayan Outback began with a young outdoor enthusiast, Misty Dhillon. In 1994 young Misty Dhillon was first seduced by the mighty Golden Himalayan Mahseer and after his first few encounters, with what he calls a ‘Majestic Goddess’, it became apparent that his extraordinary passion was more than a seasonal obsession. Misty’s burning desire to encounter the Mahseer consumed him as he spent hours, days, and years researching and pioneering patterns and techniques for catching these fish on both spinning and fly. This majestic fish lured Misty into the great outdoors of India, exposing him to amazing river valleys, villages, and the people who make the outback of India so special.
It didn’t take long before Misty began to dream of making his personal passion for the outdoors into a fulltime career. In the year 2001, Misty took a step toward achieving this dream when he took a job with well a reputed white-water rafting company. During the next 4 years Misty managed, guided and quickly learned the ropes for running a successful outdoor adventure outfit. In 2004 Misty took a huge leap toward his dream by joining Mickey Sidhu to create their own company, The Himalayan Outback.
