blog_July_10_2010[1] I’ve been traveling all day but sure haven’t gone far. That’s due to a seven hour layover at the airport here in Minneapolis. I was hoping to visit a college pal that lives here but he is tied up with a softball tournament. All we could do was chat briefly on the phone.

It actually works out good as I was behind on emails and retuning some calls the past few days. Now that’s all done and I am truly ready to rock. Tonight I fly to Amsterdam and then tomorrow afternoon I’ll fly up to Oslo, Norway where Vladi Trzebunia should be waiting. Actually, he may be late because as we speak he and his camper are on a ferry from Poland to Sweden. He gets to Sweden at 6 am Sweden time then has about an 8 to 10 hour drive to Oslo. We will both be exhausted before the trip starts – NOT! We will be so pumped we will roll north into the midnight sun without any problem. I can’t wait!

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!
