Jeff-currier-fish-artI’m just home for an hour here in continuation of a busy run that started on July 7 with a three day Scientific Angler photo shoot.  Next I fished with my friend Scott then on Thursday I taught a full day fly fishing seminar in Big Sky, MT.  Friday, I left Big Sky and drove 7 hours to Pinedale, WY so that yesterday I could help with the fantastic fundraising event in Pinedale, WY, Fishing for the Fight.


Fishing for the Fight (FFF) raises money for families fighting cancer, people with special needs and children with chronic illness.  The funds defray the cost of travel, food and lodging, a cost that results from living in a rural location such as Sublette County Wyoming.  I helped by being a guide/judge for their fun fishing tournament from 6:45 AM till 1 PM.  Then during the evening banquet, I did my sharpie art on a Yeti cooler while folks watched.  FFF sold the Yeti in their live auction to raise money.  I’m proud to say the cooler went for $6000!


Yeti-Jeff-CurrierI was too tired to drive all the way home when the event ended around 10:30 PM last night so I drove a little then slept in the back of the Explorer on the Upper Green River.  You would think I’d wake up and fish but instead I was up at 5:15 and drove home because I’m being picked up in an hour by friend Boots Allen.  Boots and I will be meeting Tom Bie (Drake Magazine) and fishing the lower Snake River for the next three days.  See blogs for 2019 and 2020.


Time to run!

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!
