Office Break on the Trout River

Office Break on the Trout River

I’ve been fishing a ton and there are no complaints.  But behind the rod I’ve been putting in long hours of writing blogs and articles, editing photos from all this angling and also some artwork.  This is a Cliff Box I did over the weekend.       The...

You Can See Me but You Can’t Catch Me

You Can See Me but You Can’t Catch Me

Granny and I had river plans today but with all the rain we’ve had this month, the river was far too high.  We bagged it and went to a musky lake we fished a couple times last year.  I should mention we were skunked both of those trips.       Today, we...

Take it Easy on the First Day Back

Take it Easy on the First Day Back

Only a week ago my girl was getting home from two surprise days in the hospital.  While she’s still not 100% and will have further testing in weeks to come, it was time to get her out of the house.  She worked this week and if you can work you can certainly fly fish....

Some Days are Made for Mowing the Lawn

Some Days are Made for Mowing the Lawn

When Bob and I chatted yesterday about fishing today, we sort of warned each other of some big evil wind in the forecast.  We agreed not to get up early to hit the water but rather to meet at his house at 8 and assess the situation.  Sure enough, when I arrived at...

Hefty Walleye Saves Us from Blank

I’m pleased to say Granny was feeling spry this morning.  It’s gorgeous here in Wisconsin so that probably helps.  We had a nice breakfast on the back porch then my phone rang and it was an old Idaho buddy Shannon McCormick.  Though he still lives in the Jackson Hole...

Health Shakedown in Currierville

When I pulled in the driveway from fishing with Bob Butler on Monday Granny eased her way from the house to the car.  I was just pulling my rods out. “Take me to the emergency room”, she said.   Granny missed her day of work with severe dizzy spells and terrible...

Early Season Musky Luck Continues

Bob Butler and I had trouble deciding what to do today.  Bob has a new lake boat and a new raft.  We opted for the lake boat trip.  It’s a fantastic Lund with an amazing platform for fly casting.  We hit a little lake known for having a high population of decent sized...

Granny Checks Musky Off Her List

Granny Checks Musky Off Her List

It was an enjoyable 7 hour drive home from Nipigon on Friday.  I daydreamed about the incredible fishing run of the last two months from Bhutan to Colombia to Canada.  It was unbelievable.  But it was great to finally be home for a normal dinner with Granny on the...

Things were a little brisk here this morning at Bowman Island Lodge for May 30th.  Even for the Ontario side of Lake Superior.  But the sky was blue again and Joe Wolthuis and I got the pleasure of sharing another day with our trip host, Jerry Darkes.   While...

Welcome to the Blog of Jeff Currier!

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!
