A Few More Casts to Break Up the Drive

Devils-TowerGranny won’t drive my stick shift 1991 Explorer so I punched out a lot of miles on this Wisconsin trip.  3,285 to be exact.  Yesterday we left Iron River, WI at 5 AM sharp and 850 miles later we pulled into a campsite within view of Devils Tower in Wyoming.  Two beers in my Yeti chair and I was out like a light.  This is the gorgeous view we had when we woke up.


Granny-CurrierWe only traveled about three hours today.  That’s because tonight we are visiting my Baja pal Sammy Vigneri.  Sam and his family live in Casper, WY.  With only three hours to drive we had time for a stop.  There’s a nice bass, walleye and pike lake and we wade fished the shoreline.  It was a slow.  We each caught a smallmouth and called it a day.


smallmouth-bassBefore Covid all I did was hop on airplanes and fly for hours to fishing destinations.  Being somewhat grounded for 14 months has reminded me how awesome it is to get behind the wheel and go.  Though my plane tickets are piling up again, I’m not going to let these road trips slip away.  This one was epic!


Don’t forget our yard sale will be May 15th.  There will be all kinds of stuff from camping to fishing gear.  I never sell stuff from companies I represent so don’t expect Winston’s or Simms waders or etc. but there’s some awesome stuff.  If you’d like a list of rods or reels just Contact Me and I’ll email it to you.  And don’t procrastinate, I mentioned this last month and a ton of stuff went fast!

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!
