225 Species of Fly Caught Fish – No Far Flung Fish Fables, Forgeries, Fibs, Fiction, Fallacies, Fertilizer or Fairytales

Thousands and thousands of air miles, airline cuisine (yuck), endless hours waiting in dirt strip airports for lost luggage, journeys across oceans and continents, sleeping under the stars, a tree branch, a tent, in the dirt on or near a critter colony, hundreds of yards of trashed fly lines, pounds of lost streamers, dries and nymphs, gallons of Gink and warm beer, busted fly rods, demolished fly reels, useless dead-end hand drawn maps on bar napkins, forgotten names, faces, pungent smells, hundreds of rolls of 35mm film (thank God now for digital) blisters, calluses, sunburn, diarrhea, frostbite, sprains and pains, countless skeeter bites, spectacular rivers, lakes, streams, creeks, ditches, channels, culverts and miscellaneous mud holes …

FISH are where you find them !

Thanks to Google Maps and internet magic, I’m now able to share with you the locations of every one of the 225 species of fish I’ve caught on a fly rod, since I was but a wee little one on the banks of a pond in New England, to my latest adventure in Baja California in November 2009 and beyond.

I’ll be adding new data to this Google Map as often as time permits, so check back often. I’ll include the common and Latin name of the fish, the name of the water found and they’ll be marked on the map with a little fish icon.

The right hand side of my blog is where this map will always reside.

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!
