Competition Days – Once Upon a Time

by | Feb 10, 2012 | Uncategorized | 3 comments

Few know much about the past of “Currier” fly fishing. One terrific chapter was when I had the great privilege of competing on the world stage. In my five years of competing I had the opportunity to fish the best trout and grayling waters the world has to offer. It was truly unreal!

I was recently interviewed by Dejon Hamann. Dejon asked me all the right questions about my competition career and the end result an article I thought all of you would enjoy.

I’m finally headed for the ice this weekend. Expect a fun post on Monday and let’s hope either myself of my buddy are holding a big lake trout!

    That is an awesome article, and some good advice. One questions, in one picture all the guys are standing to take a picture, and you are hunched over, what were you doing?

    Looks to me like I was late to get in the pic – lots of momentum so I was kind of putting on the brakes.

    Awesome piece of history. Thanks for sharing Jeff.

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!
