A New Hampshire Largemouth Bass Haunt

blog-June-4-2015-1-flyfishing-for-largemouth-bassToday Becky had the day off again as well as her husband Don.  For Granny and me it wasn’t only a day to fish with them but also to go to another of my favorite Lakes Region haunts that has some of the nicest largemouth bass in the area.  It’s a drive from camp so we loaded up the canoes in my dads old Ford and arrived at the lake around 7 AM.


blog-June-4-2015-2-granny-currier-flyfishing-bassIt didn’t take long to get into some largemouth bass.  I fish the largemouth with the exact same equipment as I do the smallies.  The only difference is that I find smallies around rocks and sunken logs while the largemouth bass tend to hang around the weeds.  Today’s lake has numerous lily pad areas and each produced action.

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!
