Baja 2012

Well known guide Grant Hartman of Baja Anglers picked up Sammy Vigneri and me at the Los Cabos airport in Baja Mexico amongst heavy security this afternoon. The G20 meetings are taking place here. President Obama and other leaders from all over the world have come to discuss Global Economics. Lucky for us our flights arrived just before Air Force 1 and we were in and out of Los Cabos San Lucas airport heading north to our fishing waters without any security hassles.

June is not the normal time for Sammy and me to be doing our annual roosterfishing trip to Baja. We normally go in May. In fact we originally scheduled this beach hunt for May, but Sammy got booked up with work and we had to change it. The change was a tough one for me. As you could probably tell from all of last weeks blogs, I love the Henry’s Fork in June. It was tough to leave there. But just like on the Henry’s, I’m here in paradise with great friends, and fly fishing the salt for the next six days. I think I’ll live. And plus I’ll be heading back to the Henry’s next Monday night.

We are presently drinking beer by the pool watching Grant tie up some flies. Life is good!

    I would defiantly say your life is good. Hope you and Sammy get in to some great roosters! Avoid the Man of War!

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!
