Denver Show Back in True Form

by | Feb 15, 2022 | Denver Fly Fishing Show

Fly-Fishing-ShowThe Denver Fly Fishing Show was back in full form this past weekend.  I’m so glad!  Last winter was long due to not being out and about demonstrating on the casting ponds and teaching seminars to live audiences.  I also missed folks bringing me their backpacks and fly boxes to decorate for them with my artwork along with showing off my art on mugs, steins and shirts.  But after this weekend, it appears the Covid fears are behind most.  The event was packed!


Jeff-Currier-artThe show was held at a new venue this year as well – the Gaylord Convention Center only minutes from the Denver Airport.  The place is outstanding.  Its clean and new and the seminar rooms were fantastic.  I did two presentations a day and drew on almost a dozen packs, hats and fly boxes.  It was also great to hang with fellow speaking buddies, Landon Mayer, Alice Owsley and Phil Rowley to name a few.


The show rapped up Sunday afternoon and we kicked back for a good Superbowl.  The only disappointment for me was that the Packers weren’t playing.  This morning Granny and I loaded the van and headed south.  Next stop – Phoenix where we will get a bike rack for the van and do some fishing.  You may remember that last year I was skunked trying to add the Sonora sucker to my species list.  I’m hoping to rectify the situation this week before continuing along with the speaking tour 2022.  Stay tuned!

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!
