    Hi Jeff:
    I enjoyed your posts from Seychelles. You have had quite a year, to put it mildly. What do you have planned for an encore in 2015?
    I hope you got Granny a hell of a Christmas present!
    See you around Jackson sometime. I will be there the first week of January and February.
    Have a great Christmas.
    Best regards, Jim


  1. Fly Fishing for Parrotfish in Oman - Day 6 - Jeff Currier - […] are all one crazy sharp beak.  You may remember the big green bumphead parrotfish I caught in the Seychelles…

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!
