A Warm November Continues to Deliver more Fishing Days

flyfishingWhen Scott Smith, Josh Gallivan and I made plans to head north with heaps of huge flies to chase northern pike in early November, we weren’t so sure the trip would take place.  Normal late fall weather in the Rockies can be exceptionally windy and frigid cold.  But we all had a hunch Mother Nature would be good to us.  Lo and behold she was.  The forecast for the pike waters all this week are for temperatures in the mid 60°s and light wind.  Today we headed out on the eight hour drive.


pike-on-flyEight hours might sound terrible to some.  But there’s nothing like a fall drive through beautiful country.  Furthermore, Scott, Josh and I haven’t been together since we walked the flats of Bear Lake back in August.  We had so much to catch up on that today’s drive went by fast.  We arrived around 4 PM and because we’re here for three nights, we took the time to set up a very comfy camp.

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!
