Back on the Saddle Again

fishing-with-dadThanks everyone for the nice notes, comments and calls of condolences for my dad.  Its been a tough ten days since dad died.  We celebrated his life last week in NH and said good bye.  As hard as it was, I got to spend some great time with family and old friends that I haven’t seen in years.  A ton of amazing photos of dad came out of the woodwork as well.  This one is one of my favorites.  Its dad taking me and my little brother on a hike through the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary in about 1972.


Granny and I returned to Idaho Friday.  I’ve been resting after the intense January.  I did some snowy hikes, watched the Super Bowl and hit the local pubs with my best pals.  Its been good.  But tomorrow its back on the saddle again.  First stop – Florida.


I have three months of gigs to go but most from here on out involve some fishing.  On Saturday I’m giving a full day seminar to the Backcountry Fly Club of Melbourne, FL.  I’m flying there tomorrow so I can fish on Friday and then again on Sunday.  I need a few long casts to get this year back on track.


Stay tuned. . . . .

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!
