A Musky War has Started

MuskellungeI received a text during coffee this morning from Bob, “I saw the musky this around 6 AM.  He showed up near my fly but didn’t show much interest.  Then she stared me down again.  What are doing this afternoon?”


I’ll make this quick but of course I found a couple hours to go toss the 9-weight Air Salt for muskellunge this afternoon.  I didn’t mess around and threw the Sammy Vigneri favorite, the Man-Bear-Pig.  I got a strike but will never know what it was.  Bob fished a fly about half the size but no musky.  Just a heap of nice largemouth.  Nothing wrong with bass but I assure you, Bob wanted this musky.  We’ll try again soon I’m sure!

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!
