blog-March-18-2015-1-sam-vigneri-flyfising-for-roosterfishMy annual roosterfish trip to Baja isn’t so annual lately.  Last year I missed the body-bashing trip for the first time in years because I took on a mahseer project in Bhutan.  Then three weeks ago my 2015 trip was cancelled because my roosterfish companion, Sammy Vigneri, slipped on ice and broke his leg severely.

I’m now packing for the Chinook Waters Fly Fishing Club Conclave in Lethbridge, Alberta Canada.  I’ll be their guest speaker this weekend.  I was there in 2012 and all I can say is these folks like to have fun.

    Sammy is getting better but not handling it well. I don’t blame him as I could never sit still. Its a good thing WY Pokes are doing well so he has something fun to watch on the couch! Hopefully they continue on this weekend!

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
