California Speaking Tour has been a Blast!

by | Mar 1, 2017 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

I’m deep into the California speaking tour.  I spoke to Tracy Fly Fishers last week then at the Pleasanton Fly Fishing Show over the weekend.  Both were excellent with high attendance for the show and all my presentations.  Here’s a shot of me teaching the Double Haul on the outside casting pond.


On top of the speaking I busted out some mean artwork.  I drew on a banjo for David Blackburn of Kootenai Angler two years ago.  This weekend I did it again only this time I went with a saltwater look.  Here’s finishing up the bonefish on top.

Next was to sketch in the tarpon.

Here’s the completion.  It took me all night at the hotel bar!

I was stoked the way it came out as was Dave!

Granny and I have been chilling out in the boonies of California.  We are just leaving Kernville and I’m speaking in to Kern River Fly Fishers tonight and Fresno Fly Fishers tomorrow.  Then it’s a long drive home but home sweet home it will be.  Looking forward to it!

    What a fun evening with Jeff and Granny in Bakersfield. Your streamer presentation was fantastic, lots of great info. Talked to one of our members yesterday and he was fired up. Said I want to fish with that guy. Thanks Jeff and Granny, it was great to have you back in Bakersfield. Jeff said he will be back, needs to check Pike minnow off his fish list!

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!
