An Old Friend Gone

blog-May-24-2015-jeff-currier-flyfishing-carsMy old friend the 1993 Exploder limped its way to Idaho Falls this weekend so I could turn it in to Pacific Recycling.  Luckily, the journey was intercepted when I was having my XM Radio System taken out at Best Buy.  The technician there took the old SUV off my hands for $130 and will fix it up and drive it more.  It has 270,000 miles.  My new rig, 1991 Exploder with manual transmission, will be on the blog from now on.

    “Exploder” became its nickname because less than a year after I bought her the transmission blew out. $2200 later. . . . I was upset for the next 20000 miles but then got over it and drove it another 200000 miles. The $2200 was well worth it!

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!
