Back to Phoenix

by | Jan 10, 2018 | fly fishing seminars, fly fishing speaker

Its life in the fast lane from now till April.  I always move fast but during my show/speaking tour season it moves crazy fast.  Today I escaped the big storm in Idaho and caught an early flight for Phoenix.  Though the reason was to deliver my PowerPoint presentation, “Four Seasons of the Yellowstone Trout Bum”, to Desert Fly Casters tonight, I’ll be fly fishing for grass carp on Thursday and Friday with my friend Steve Berry.  After Steve fetched me from the Phoenix airport he took me to see the Chicago Cubs new spring training facility.


I never stopped moving from 3 AM in Victor, Idaho this morning till after my speech and returned to Steve’s house tonight.  It was a draining 22-hour day.  But it was also a great success and over 120 members of the Desert Fly Casters were well entertained.


A funny thing came up at my gig.  There were folks from the other Phoenix fly fishing club, Arizona Flycasters Club, attending.  When I was done they asked if I was free to speak to them tomorrow night.  Yes, I am.  So, after fishing tomorrow it will be back to the microphone.  Now it’s time for some desperately needed sleep before yet another fun filled day.

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!
