Back to the Lakes Region of New Hampshire

by | Jun 20, 2018 | flyfishing New Hampshire

Ever since my dad began to struggle with Parkinson’s disease I’ve found my way back east to visit my family in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire a bunch. Dad is now I nursing home so that’s a huge bummer.  But there is some good.  I went from seeing my family once a year to what is now four or five times year.  And no doubt my mom and nephew and nieces love it.


Granny and I arrived in Wolfeboro late last night after a long trip from Idaho.  We crashed out hard and awoke to my sisters kids, Sierra and Ely, anxious to see their Uncle Jeff and Aunt Granny.  Little did they know, I brought a Scientific Anglers casting practice rod.


I bought both kids fly rods a few years back and they’ve both caught a few fish.  But in never hurts for any fly fisher to brush up on their casting – young or old.  After a half hour on moms grass the kids left for school.


As much as I wanted to take off fishing with Granny, today turned into a work day.  This is the time of year when my speaking bookings roll in.  2019 looks to be another busy one.  After hours on my computer Granny and I did some errands.  We stocked up on food and beer and moved into our family cottage.  We also enjoyed a big lunch with mom on the deck at Jo Greens.


At last, around 5:30 tonight Granny and I launched my old Oldtown.  I got this canoe when I was 8 years old and she still floats.  We headed for Back Bay where we cleaned up on the bluegill and pumpkinseeds.  Tomorrow I suspect there will be an early morning pursuit of smallmouth bass!

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!
