flyfishingWe’ll call it a wrap down here at Sea Island, Georgia.  Chip and I just got back from a three hour morning fishing session.  It was freezing cold and windy.  53° with a north wind to add to an already chilly day – not fun.  And did I mention drizzle?


Chip-ShealyWhen we left the dock at 9 am.  Kyle was off so we had a new guide,  Capt. Rob.  Super nice guy that’s been around a long time.  Rob and I both noticed as we boated through the marsh that every bird from pelicans to cormorants to terns were hunkered down rather than feeding.  If one animal is laying low, usually all are, including fish.   Despite a full effort between Chip and I, we caught one mere spotted seatrout.


fly-fishingWe’re going to relax this afternoon after lunch then hit one last big dinner here at Sea Island.  Tomorrow its back to WI where I’ll begin preparation for the next leg of shows and presentations for fly fishing clubs.  You can check out my 2024 schedule here.


A special thanks goes out to George Hillenbrand for taking me on this fantastic trip!

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!
