Baja 2022 Starts Now

fly-fishingBaja 2022 started yesterday afternoon when I arrived in Todos Santos, Mexico.  I’m here with my longtime Wyoming pal Sammy Vigneri who stars on this blog at many saltwater destinations worldwide.  Most recently Sammy was with me at Providence Atoll in the Seychelles.  My other partner in crime is legendary Baja fishing guide, Grant Hartman, owner and founder of Baja Anglers.  Grant is one of the most knowledgeable fly fishing guides in all of Baja.  We met down here back in 1996 and been friends ever since.


BajaWhile we have big fishing plans this week, we didn’t jump right after them today.  Grant made a few casts off the beach by Sammy’s condo and took down a small Pacific ladyfish.  There were some huge waves so that’s all the fishing done between the three of us.  The good news however, Grant has us booked on a panga up on Magdalena Bay starting Monday to chase striped marlin on the fly.  From here in Todos its about a 5 hour drive.  We had the option of heading up today fishing beaches along the way over the weekend.  But up there civilization gets thin as does the internet.  Furthermore, all of us had some catch up to do with work.


flyfish-MexicoSo our plan will be to head downtown here in Todos right now and watch Game 6 of the World Series.  Right, the Cubs didn’t exactly compete this season but I love baseball nonetheless.  Tomorrow we head out early for Mag Bay where we will base out of all week.  Along the way we’ll try to catch a few fish off random beaches.  This should be a good trip.  Perhaps the end of the STRIPED marlin curse!


angler-giftsDespite being 2022, internet is sparse in remote parts of Baja.  Furthermore, after a 10-12hr fishing day on the salt, its hard to get the blogs out on time.  They will be delayed but they will come in full.  Stay tuned!


In the meantime, please visit my webstore for “Christmas Gifts for the Angler that has Everything” and stuff those stockings with my fish decals from “Pescador on the Fly”.

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!
