It was a busy week since returning from NH with catching up and of course the 4th of July which in Victor, Idaho is a huge celebration.  This weekend the action continued.  I spent Friday night through Sunday night being interviewed, photographed and filmed by “BeAlive”.  There will be more to come on this soon but in a nut shell, they are doing a human interest story on my love of fishing and painting fish along and the lifestyle that goes with.

BeAlive had topics to film – fishing, painting and me having a few beers at the Knotty Pine with fellow Victor pals.  Sounds fun and it was.  It started both Saturday and Sunday morning out on the Teton River at 6 am.  There’s nothing like calling in the cows before sunrise!

Sunrise isn’t the time to be fishing here in Idaho but when the sun pops over the Tetons it offers the best light for photographing.  I walked the river, posed and did all kinds of things.  Sounds boring but watching the morning sky come to life was fantastic.

To my surprise, the Pale Morning Dun hatch started at around 7:30 am.  It didn’t take long for the fish to start rising.  Both mornings I landed a handful of rainbows and cutthroats.  Several were dream-sized 14” to 16” beauties!

We finished on the river when the sun got too high for outdoor photography and honestly, this weekend was too hot for fishing during the day.  We retreated to my art studio (the kitchen table) and I was filmed painting a yellow permit while listening to the Cubs.  Since I finally caught my first at St. Brandon’s Atoll back in May I’d been planning to paint one up.  In the film the entire creation of the painting will be shown at high speed in 30 seconds.


Along with the water colored yellow permit I drew on fly boxes.  Did plenty of interviews and had some great food and beer.  In fact, the beer drinking with friend’s session came together in natural fashion.  It started with me and Tim Brune and by 9 pm there were 9 of us chatting around an outside table at the Knotty Pine.

I’m exhausted but it was a great weekend.  I think that Lee and Courtney of the BeAlive team were highly professional and I can’t wait to see the short film they piece together.  I’ll be sure to announce where and when it can be seen.

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!
