East Coast Fly Fishing Shows Complete

blog-Jan-28-2014-Jeff-Currier-artworkThe Somerset, New Jersey Fly Fishing Show was another dandy.  The aisles were jam packed with excitement and I kept busy from opening on Friday till closing time on Sunday.  I picked up a horrendous crud that took the life out of me by mid day Saturday.  Too many handshakes I guess at previous shows – it was bound to happen.  I grit through it kicked out my seminars and decorated more than a dozen Cliff Boxes, computer cases, Patagonia Boat Bags and even a few phone covers.  I never stopped.


Now that the East Tour is over I’m dead to the world.  The crud is brutal and today was time to fight it with the heavy stuff.  It doesn’t help that there’s another arctic cold front here in New Hampshire.  To make it more fun, Granny and I are heading back to Idaho in the morning and it sounds like will be facing a good snowstorm back home.  I hope we get in.


I don’t have another show until mid February however I’ll keep busy.  Next Wednesday night, February 5th I’ll be the guest on Ask About Fly Fishing Internet Radio.  I’ll be talking golden dorado and my recent trip down to Bolivia.  The very next morning I’ll head for the Northwood’s of Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin for four days of hardwater fishing for pike, walleye, perch, black crappie, bluegill and whatever else takes the jigs.  I absolutely can’t wait for the little mid tour vacation!


Expect a full report with photos from the ice – the first fishing reports of 2014!

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!
