Arrival in Tahiti

flyfishing TahitiI’ve spent a lot of time on planes the last ten days.  After returning from a short trip to Africa Friday night I had a great weekend at home in the snow of Victor, Idaho.  But yesterday was back in the air and I flew from Idaho to Los Angeles.  Then last night I took a 9 hour long redeye from Los Angeles to Papeete, Tahiti.

Papeete isn’t the end of the flying either.  It’s a stopover on the way to Anna Atoll in the Tuamotu Archipelago.  The flight to Anna takes place tomorrow so for today its chill out at the Intercontinental Resort Hotel.  And it is spectacular!

Stay tuned for what should be a unique fishing experience at a location few have ever heard of!

Be sure to keep track of my upcoming travels around the world!

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!
