Canada Fly Fishing Tour 2018

by | Mar 19, 2018 | fly fishing instructor Jeff Currier | 1 comment

It was a quick turn around from Mexico to Alberta, Canada.  I flew home from Baja and unpacked my saltwater gear and cleaned it up.  Then packed up my seminar goods for an extended weekend of speaking that started Thursday night in Great Falls, Montana.  Friday it was on to Lethbridge, Alberta through Sunday at the Chinook Waters Fly Fishing Club.  I kicked it off for a huge crowd with a new show from Kendjam with crazy fish of the Southern Amazon.


The weather has been challenging.  Delayed flights and slow highways have been especially draining and stressful.  Luckily, I haven’t missed a gig and they’ve all gone well too.  The highlight was teaching a watercolor painting class to 25 kids of the club.  The youngsters created some masterpieces of a rainbow trout eating mayfly.  Amazingly I had their attention for nearly two hours!


I’m presently on a bus headed north for Calgary, Alberta.  It’s another gloomy March day with light snow and wind.  I look out from my bus window and it’s basically a white out across the plains.


Tonight, is the last stop of my last big tour of the season.  I’ll be presenting “Fly Fishing Though Midlife Heaven” for Fish Tales Fly Shop in Calgary and drawing on fly boxes.  If you live near be sure to check the event out.  Click here for the details.


Tomorrow I head home and in a few days I’ll begin a journey to Oviedo, Spain.  Details to come. . . .

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!
