A Fishless Day on the Columbia River

walleyeIt was back on the Columbia for walleye again today with Mike LaSota.  In fact, today Granny came with also.  But if you thought yesterday was a tough day. . . . today was even slower.  We fished from around 11 AM until after 5 PM and not only did we get skunked, we never spotted much on the fish finder either.


Columbia-RiverWe won’t give up however.  Last nights walleye was so delicious that we’ll get back on the water tomorrow.  While today was nicer than yesterday, tomorrow is the best weather day we have.  I can’t wait.  I’m feeling it for more than just the walleye and I’m ready for another thousand casts!

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!
