First Fly Fishing Show in the Books

by | Jan 7, 2019 | Uncategorized


I’m a bit exhausted today.  I got home from the Denver Fly Fishing Show at 2:45 AM this morning following a hectic wind and snow ridden 10 hour drive through the night.  But the show was superb and if it’s any indication how the rest of the show season will be than 2019 should be one of the best.


Thursday was the long drive down to Denver.  I drive because I can load the car with my coffee mugs and beer steins.  I also like the drive as its hours of thinking, relaxing and enjoying the scenery.  Once to Denver Granny and I tossed things in our hotel room and unloaded stuff in our booth then hit the town with friends.

The show was Friday, Saturday and Sunday and I delivered PowerPoint presentations and casting demos on each day.  In between I signed books and kept the sharpies moving.  I decorated all sorts of things from fanny packs, hats, fly boxes and one Yeti Backpack.


The most memorable project however was drawing a Napoleon wrasse on a Cliff Fly Box.  You should remember back in December when I landed a couple of these while at Anaa Atoll.  Well, now I’ve met the challenge of turning one into a piece of artwork.  This box now belongs to my friend Lance Tomar.


The best part of show season is getting to see friends that don’t see often enough.  Along with seeing many acquaintance friends during the show I spent evenings with longtime friends from Scientific Anglers and Simms.  Although the late nights and early mornings will wear you down it’s worth it to me.  Next in line – the Western Idaho Fly Fishing Show in Boise. Bring something for my Sharpies!

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!
