Canoeing in December on Lake Winnipesaukee

by | Dec 2, 2013 | Uncategorized

blog-Dec-2-2013-Jeff-CurrierI’m not seeing much of Victor, Idaho this fall.  Almost immediately after Africa, Granny and I headed to Wolfeboro, New Hampshire to spend time with my family for Thanksgiving.  We haven’t hit a Holiday in over fifteen years so Mom was extremely happy.


There’s not much fishing going on so to occupy ourselves we canoed around Lake Winnipesaukee.  It wasn’t warm by any means, but you can rarely canoe Winnipesaukee without being disturbed by powerboats.  Let’s just say, we had the lake to ourselves and it was no less than spectacular.  Actually we shared with some common loons decked out in their winter plumage before they migrate south.


We’ll be headed back to Idaho tomorrow.  For me it’s another brief stop home before a run to Baja with the doc, Sammy Vigneri to try for a marlin on the fly with friend Grant Hartman.  Never stop moving!

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!
