A Bizarre November Warm Front Leads to Musky

by | Nov 16, 2023 | fly fishing for musky

fly-fishingIt’s happened before – going fishing when I probably shouldn’t be going fishing.  But while I was galivanting in Mexico earlier this month and while down on Georgia last week, buddy Mr. Bob Butler has been back home in WI catching muskies.  When he invited me along for an afternoon on the water today I stopped everything and went.


flyfishingIt was a freak day for November in Northern WI.  It was 63°.  However, the wind blew hard.  We had a steady 20 mph with gusts that we’ve learned hit 38 mph.  Let’s just say you got our exercise when it was your turn behind the oars.  It was so harsh we heard a few big trees tumble to the ground.

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!
