Where the Boat shouldn’t Go

blog-Aug-19-2014-1-granny-currier-flyfishing-idahoBeing gone so much this summer made me want to stay close to home this week.  Instead of heading out on a two day camping fishing trip for Granny’s days off we opted to fish locally.  That being said, we still wanted to do something special and try for some bigger than average fish.  We also wanted to use the boat and be close to the cooler so we could relax.

 

blog-Aug-19-2014-2-granny-currier-fly-fishing-for-cutthroatsWe launched in no man’s land.  I’ve only seen pieces of this small stream at bridges and tracked its path on Google Earth.  The long story short is that we caught only two small cutthroats.  We spent most of the time navigating the tiny creek which in turn meant spooking more fish than anything.  That being said however, Granny broke off the largest trout I’ve seen in years!

 

There will be more following today in weeks to come. . . . Never stop exploring!

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!
