AZ Bound – Fishing Hard Starts Again

by | Oct 10, 2011 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

Before I even talk about my trip to Arizona this week I need to fill everyone in on the premiere of the movie “Connect”. You may remember I headed to Bozeman, Montana to see the first showing of “Connect” on Friday. All I can say is that the movie is superb! As I’ve mentioned, this is the movie that has a segment from our tigerfishing trip to Tanzania last November. That part is incredible. It’s the grand finale and I promise you when I lift the giant tigerfish from the water it will blow your mind. But it’s not just my part that excited me. The entire movie is terrific! There’s a trout fishing segment in Japan, tarpon in Cuba, trout fishing in Yellowstone, pike in Alaska and striped bass in Maine to go along with Africa. And you don’t have to be an angler to enjoy it. The entire flick is extremely entertaining for all. The good news is that it will be available for sale on my website in early November and there’s even a good chance the movie will hit the big screen in a theater near you. Check the Confluence Films website for tour dates.

I’m presently on my way to Arizona to do a presentation for Desert Fly Casters on fly fishing in Baja. My presentation will take place on Wednesday night. If you’re in the area go to the Desert Fly Casters website for details. In the meantime, I will be fishing with my friends Steve Berry and Cinda Howard. Steve and Cinda have been showing me a good time fishing in Arizona for about 15 years now. They’re great friends and if you go back on my blog to October 2010 you can see what we got into last time. I honestly don’t know what they have planned but I’m sure it will include big bass or finicky grass carp (white Amur).

As always when I’m travelling my blog could post a day or so late. So just keep an eye and hope to see some cool fish. As for the big gaps between fishing reports the last couple weeks, that’s about to end. I am caught up on work and about to hit it hard again. Stay tuned!

    I was also at the Bozeman premier. Very good show! The fly fishing specific films seem to get better each year. Glad to see Yellowstone included.

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!
