Don’t Miss “Currier’s Quest”

flyfishingExactly a week ago today Granny and I got home after the long show season.  It was perfect timing.  We had freaky warm weather in the upper 70°s for the first five days.  Almost all of our snow melted.  Then yesterday a storm rolled in and its back to freezing.


flyfishingThere’s been zero fishing.  I’ve spent every minute catching up on things including unpacking.  I don’t mean unpacking from the shows.  I’m talking still unpacking for moving into our house!  My fun has been listening to the Cubs over the radio waves beating up on some pretty solid teams while working.  This could be a good baseball summer.  I just need to get my Fantasy team to do a little better.


I’ll be fishing here shortly.  On Thursday I leave for Grand Slam Lodge in Mexico to host a group of Fly Fishers International / Yellow Dog Flyfishing guests.  This is a short trip that includes a mere three days fishing.  But if I catch a few bonefish and get one legitimate cast to a permit, it will be more than worth it.


Jeff-CurrierIf you have time on Wednesday night, you can catch me live on Ask About Fly Internet Radio.  This show is called “Currier’s Quest” and the questions they ask will be focused on me trying to catch as many species on a fly as possible.  If you go to their website you can actually type in your own questions and they will ask me on the show.  I’ve done a bunch of these live broadcast over the years and they are great fun.


That’s it for now.  I’m off to see the Hayward Orthopedic Surgeon.  I recently had X-Rays and last Wednesday I finally got an MRI on the left shoulder.  It hasn’t been hurting like it did to start the New Year and luckily three months of PT has kept me in the fishing game.  But she still hurts, looks deformed and I have restricted movement.  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!
