blog-April-24-2014-1-jeff-currier-fish-artI’m loving life on the home front. The songs of robins, sandhills, red-winged blackbirds and the meadowlarks have brought Teton Valley back to life. But other than a few rides on the bike I’ve kept myself inside writing my book and catching up on the artwork while watching the Cubs lose games in remarkable fashion.

blog-April-24-2014-2-flyfishing-warmwaterI wanted to mention that my Henry’s Fork Marathon will be a few days late this year (see Marathon 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013). Granny and I will be chasing the warmwater fish back on Lake Winnipesaukee on the longest day of the year for my parents 50th Anniversary. The Marathon will be July 1. We’ll be meeting up in the Last Chance parking lot around 7 AM that day but bring some beers and dogs for around the fire in the gravel pits the night before – everyone is welcome.

Me and friend Mike Dawes are headed for Bhutan on May 15th as part of an expedition with the WWF as guests of the Prime Minister. This should be yet another mind blowing experience!

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!
