Bears One – Bird Feeders Zero

by | Jun 25, 2018 | black bears

Wind, rain and cool temps kept Granny and I completely off the water today here in New Hampshire.  Instead we headed down to Newburyport, Massachusetts to watch my nieces act in a play.  Its probably not what you’d expect from Granny and I but we’re glad we did.  The play was excellent, the girls did great and they were excited we were there.


The day was by no means without some outdoor action however.  The first thing this morning a black bear with two cubs surprised us in mom’s backyard.  Let’s just say moms done feeding the birds for a while!

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!
