A Break from Dartmouth

by | Aug 25, 2012 | Uncategorized

Last night was the first time we left Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital. As a family we opted to leave Dad and return to Mom’s house in Wolfeboro for a good break. When we got there after the two hour drive there was still two hours of daylight. I paddled my canoe to Back Bay and fished till dark. The fishing is nothing like it was back in May but I caught a couple largemouth bass and a chain pickerel.

As far as Dads condition, when we returned to the hospital this morning we were disappointed. He still hasn’t changed since the surgery. He basically can’t do anything. We spoke with some rehab folks but it’s the weekend and they don’t have much staff on the weekends to work with him and we are advised not to move him much. His surgeon was off today but the intern covering says this is normal. We do not like this much so far. We returned all the way back to Wolfeboro again tonight and will head back in the morning.

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!
