Bound for Africa

blog-Oct-30-2013-1-flyfishing-for-tigerfishAt this time tomorrow I’ll be zipping across the planet with tigerfish fever!  I’m headed back to Africa, Tanzania to be exact, to the camps of Tourette -Fight it in Africa on the Mnyera and Ruhudji Rivers.  In fact I’ll be right where Confluence Films and I made the impressive segment for their 2011 film, “Connect”.


I’m hosting two groups of anglers for Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures on this trip.  As always I intend to post stories and pictures from each day.  But as usual at these off the beaten path destinations, the internet doesn’t exist.  Therefore I’ll post the adventures day by day upon my return.  I will be back on November 18th.


blog-Oct-30-2013-2-confluence-films-waypointsWhile I’m away – DO NOT MISS the November 8th premiere of Confluence Films new movie, “Waypoints”.  The final segment is my spring trip to India with Misty Dhillon of the Himalayan Outback.  To see if the tour is near you visit Confluence Film Tour.  To see the “Waypoints” trailer – click here.


Obviously while I’m away I can’t respond to email or phone calls.  But please send your messages and I will get to them upon my return.

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!
