Double Duty – 2 Carp and 2 Clubs

flyfishing-white-amurBefore the pandemic my schedule was a wild one.  In 2019 I fished in twelve countries.  More impressive and undoubtedly economically better, I also gave 47 presentations around the US and Canada over the course of the year.  It was a productive 365 days, but honestly, hopefully I never travel that much in a year again.  But I better get a grip, today showed signs that I’m headed right back to where I left off.


Currier-flyfishingThe day began in Sun City – about an hour from Steve and Lisa Berry’s house in north Phoenix.  I was there early to fly fish a private lake with members of the Sun City Grand Fly Fishing Club.  I nailed a grass carp and a common.  If only the big orange koi that tipped on my crayfish pattern ate, I’d have gotten a carp slam.  After a nice lunch with some of the folks, I delivered my Warmwater Fly Fishing PowerPoint presentation.  Things went perfect and we wrapped up their day around 3.

flyfishing-talksIt was about 9:45 PM when I got all my props and art packed up to call it a work day.  Then Steve and a few friends that belong to DFC and I headed for a beer.  We just returned to Steve’s and I must say I’m a little tired.





I need some sleep.  Tomorrow is a big day.  Steve and I are fishing with friends Gentry Smith and Mike Faulkinbury somewhere along the urban canals here in Phoenix.  Steve and I only have until around noon because at 1:30 I pick up Granny’s and my new van.  Big stuff!


Once again, it’s time to remind everyone that Christmas is coming on fast and I have “Gifts for the angler that has everything”.  Visit my Webstore for my famous fish coffee mugs, beer steins, sun shirts, sun hoodies and visit my friends at Pescador on the Fly to order my 10” and 5” fish decals!

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!
