Arrival at Casa Blanca Fishing Lodge in Mexico

flyfishing-MexicoIt was a good move leaving Idaho a day early for this trip to Casa Blanca Lodge in Mexico with friend Jerry Arnold.  It turns out Idaho got crushed with snow last night right through midday today along with 45 MPH winds.  Instead of dealing with a cancelled flight out of Idaho Falls I awoke in Salt Lake City and then caught a 9:30 AM direct Delta flight to Cancun.  The flight is slightly longer than 4 hours and Jerry hooked me up with a very nice seat!

Casa-Blanca-fishingThere were a few familiar faces of staff from when I was here last year with Jerry.  You shouldn’t have a favorite but no doubt, bar tender and full on restaurant attendant and man of everything, Reno, was a pleasant sight to see.  He fixed Jerry and I up with welcome drinks then we proceeded to set up our gear in order to be ready for an early departure for fishing with Guide Pato in the morning.


Currier-Horse-eye-jackAfter an exquisite snapper dinner, Jerry and I wandered down to the dock to peer under its night light.  Just like last year, there were some fish on the prowl.  While there were no tarpon to be seen there were some horse-eye jacks.  While normally horse-eyes are aggressive, these ones appear to have been around the block.  We chucked poppers, Puglisi flies, crabs and others only to catch one small one.  Small jack or not, it broke the ice before bed for what should be a killer bonefish, permit and tarpon trip to Mexico with Jerry!


While I’m chasing a few fish around be sure to keep my webstore in mind as the place to get your Christmas Gifts for the Angler that has Everything!

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!
