Denver Fly Fishing Show Done

blog-Jan-14-2015In a blink of an eye the Denver Fly Fishing Show is in the rearview mirror.  And what a show it was.  At a quick glance the show looked about the same as last year.  But as you meandered in deep you noticed major expansion.  This year there were numerous more exhibitors.


There were some excellent speakers this year including Gary Borger, A.K. Best, Ed Engle, Landon Mayer and Bob Jacklin to name a few.  And yes, my December preparation of updating all my PowerPoint Presentations and enhancements in my Casting Demos paid off.  On Saturday I had my largest crowd ever at “Fly Casting in the Wind and the Double Haul” which got me really fired up!


The new fish mugs were a hit.  I drew fish on ten Cliff Fly Boxes (not my record) and signed a bunch of books.  Needles to say I was physically and mentally exhausted by show close on Sunday night.


Exhausted or not, I still needed a full day at home Monday before leaving East on Tuesday.  After the show friend Harvey ( and I drove ten hours back to Idaho.  The roads weren’t friendly slowing me to a crawl due to packed snow and ice.  Even worse, at 3 AM the roads of Wyoming and Idaho are nothing more than avenues for elk, deer and moose.  I got in my own bed at 4 AM and was too tired to sleep.


I managed my way through the rest of Monday and ended the day packed and ready for the East Coast where I’ll do the Marlborough, MA Fly Fishing Show this weekend and the Somerset, NJ Fly Fishing Show next weekend.


Yesterday I flew to Manchester, NH and I’m presently sorting things out at my folk’s house in Wolfeboro, NH.  Man it’s cold!  I think its time to wander to Garwoods for a couple Pales and day dream about all the big smallies I’m going to exercise next June in the lake.

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!
