Another Niece Another Fly Rod

Winston-Fly-rodsMost of you probably saw this text from Montana on my Instagram page (jeffcurrier65).  If you didn’t, read it now and you’ll get a laugh.  Because of this text, I had to be the good uncle and bring her a rod.  Naturally I couldn’t bring one niece a rod and not the other.  This afternoon I gave another to Sierra and she and I paddled to Back Bay to test it out.


Remember, yesterday I discovered Back Bay has been poisoned for weed control and the fishing was bleak.  But, I found a few and Sierra and I returned to those spots.  She landed some rock bass, pumpkinseeds and a bluegill.


Sierra-Rose-flyfishingI didn’t get on the water as much as I hoped today.  I spent much of the day working on an article that will appear in and Australian magazine later this summer.  I’m lucky I can work anywhere.  Tomorrow the weather here in Wolfeboro, NH deteriorates so I could be looking at a full day in the office.  We’ll see when I wake up.

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!
