A Flyby at Home

blog-March-2-2016-1-nevada-highwayThe longest speaking road trip of the year ended late Monday night after the 14 hour drive from Pleasanton, CA to Victor, ID.  I love the peacefulness of the empty highways through Nevada.  It’s like therapy after the traffic on the west coast.  I was so happy to wake up in my own bed yesterday.  I spent the entire day playing catch up with unpacking, paying bills and etc.  But I also got in a great hike and hit my local pub with some friends.  It’s good to be home again!

 

blog-March-2-2016-2-victor-idI got some great news yesterday as well.  You probably remember that last week I had two things cut off my skin that went for biopsy.  They came back not melanomas.  I’m lucky but it’s a warning that we all need to take more care in the sun.

 

Tomorrow it’s back on the road.  I’m giving my PowerPoint show, “Trout Bumming the World” to the Missouri River Flyfishers in Great Falls, Montana.  Then Friday I’m off to Lethbridge, Alberta Canada as the guest speaker for “The Art of Fly Fishing Festival”.

 

Keep right on a movin!

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!
