A Man of the All-Nighters

blog-July-11-2016-1-jeff-currier-flybox-artNot sure why but when I have a massive assignment I can’t go a minute without thinking about it.  It’s in my DNA.  About a week ago I took on an unfathomable task of decorating twenty Cliff Bugger Beast Fly Boxes with my Sharpie art for the Sweetwater River Conservancy in Alcova, Wyoming.   Not on just one side of the fly boxes but BOTH (forty drawings).  Furthermore, with delivery required by July 20th!


blog-July-11-2016-2-jeff-currier-clif-flyboxWhen I hung the phone after saying “yes I can do these” I got worried.  Making it worse, I couldn’t start ASAP because I had to wait for my blank Cliff Boxes to arrive.  They were in route when I was fishing with my South African friends.  I continued my uneasiness feeling so much that when I got home from fishing Friday and saw the blank boxes had arrived I decided that’s it, I’m sitting down and doing them all.  I started Friday afternoon at 4 PM and finished them at 9:30 Sunday night.  I took three naps and watched a heck of a lot of baseball but the job is successfully done!


Ladies day on the river tomorrow!

    Ha ha classic Currier! I remember a few all nighters actually studying for Verch’s Biology Class. Well done, because there is no way I can do it anymore.

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!
