Boise Fly Fishing Expo a Success

by | Jan 14, 2013 | Uncategorized | 3 comments

Can you say horrible drive?  Man, my drive to Boise, Idaho for the Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo was hell.  A high wind snowstorm ripped across Idaho and added three hours to my normally six hour drive Thursday.  I could hardly see for hours.  The roads were treacherous.  I saw some hellacious accidents.  It was rough.  Thankfully after driving all day I arrived in Boise at 6 PM.  I was so stressed and tired that I had a salad and one beer with my friend and show organizer Erik Moncada then retired to fellow speaker Pete Erickson’s house for the night.

The show itself was great.  Pete, Phil Rowley and I did numerous presentations throughout the weekend.  I introduced a new PowerPoint Show, “Trout Bumming the Lakes in and Around Yellowstone” that was a big hit.  I’ll be doing this many times in years to come.  And all presentations both in the theaters and on the casting ponds were well attended.

Today’s my usual Monday – unpack and repack.  It’s off to the East Coast early Wednesday morning.  This weekend is the Marlborough, MA Fly Fishing Show.  I hope to see all my New Englander friends.  Be sure and stop by my table to say hi and catch one of my presentations.  I’ll post my presentation schedule later this week. 
Before and after the show I’ll be in New Hampshire to spend some time with my parents.  It will be good to see Dad up and about for the first time since his brain surgery in August.

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!
