Epic Week Comes to an End but Trip Rolls On

snook-BajaSammy, Grant and I began our 5 hour drive from Magdalena Bay back down to Sam’s condo in Todos Santos early so we could stop and fish a snook beach.  The snook almost always elude us and today was no different.  It’s a beautiful spot but we picked through the surf waves for three hours without anything more than a longjaw leatherjack.


Baja-travelFrom there we hit the main roads straight back.  We had a common Baja occurrence slow us down.  We blew a tire.  The 2 hours of dirt roads to the beach had some sharp rocks and we hit one dead on.  Lucky for us it didn’t flatten till we were one mile from a town and every town has a tire place.  We were out of commission for a mere 45 minutes.


flyfishingWhile this is the end of a truly fabulous trip with Sammy and Grant, I am staying here in Baja for a few more weeks.  Tomorrow when Sammy flies out, Granny flies in.  We won’t have boats or guides but we’ll do some casual beach fishing.  I say casual because I will be mostly working.  Its time for me to prepare for show season.  My winter tour is a big one and its coming fast and I have lots of new pictures and stories to update my PowerPoint shows with.

fish-artDespite being 2022, internet is sparse in remote parts of Baja.  Furthermore, after a 10-12hr fishing day on the salt, it’s hard to get the blogs out on time.  They will be delayed but they will come in full.  Stay tuned! 

In the meantime, please visit my webstore for “Christmas Gifts for the Angler that has Everything” and stuff those stockings with my fish decals from “Pescador on the Fly”.

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!
