End of a Road Trip

by | Mar 8, 2012 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

Granny and I made it home from California Monday afternoon. The Pasadena Fly Fishing Show was yet another good one and the minute it ended at 4:30 PM Sunday afternoon Granny and I pointed the Explorer towards Idaho and took off. Our only stop was a three hour nap around St. George, Utah.

Since then it’s been playing catch up. Mail, email, bills, shoveling and etc., its terribly time consuming. Today I’m finally caught up yet rather then wet a line it’s prepare for Canada to speak at the Chinook Waters Fly Fishing Conclave in Lethbridge, Alberta. So I’ll be traveling yet again Friday through Sunday, but I’ve said it before, I love this stuff. And hanging with the Canadians will be a hoot!

I know, the “Currier” blog has been far from the usual entertaining fishing blog this winter, but the heap of speaking engagements has been a blessing. AND, just for your information – the blog gets back on track starting March 19th. It’s off to the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador with my good friend Sammy Vigneri. Sammy is my Baja rooster-fishing buddy, often featured on the blog. However this time we are targeting striped marlin on the fly with another friend of mine, Jake Jordan. The blog will get good again here soon – I promise!

Here are a few photos from the California tour.

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!
