blog-Jan-26-2015-1-blizzard-of-2015I’m not a big winter guy so it’s a delight to look at the calendar and see January almost gone.  When I get home this week I’ll actually notice it getting lighter earlier in the mornings.  I just hope it doesn’t give me spring fever because its way too early.


blog-Jan-26-2015-2-simms-fly-fishing-partyIn addition to January almost gone, I have my three biggest Fly Fishing Shows behind me and all were a great success.  This past weekend was the Somerset New Jersey Fly Fishing Show and it was excellent.  In fact, all three shows, Denver, Marlborough and Somerset will go down in the history books as the best.  The highlight of the weekend has to be however Simms night where me and many other Simms Ambassadors were treated to dinner at a top Cuban restaurant.


blog-Jan-26-2015-3-a-blizzard-in-wolfeboro-nhGranny and I drove the six hours from NJ all the way back up to Wolfeboro, NH on Sunday night.  It’s a good thing we busted out the miles because Monday was the arrival of a classic Nor’easter.  All roads from NJ to Maine were closed by noon on Monday.  Although down south they didn’t get hit nearly as bad as expected, up here in NH we got buried.  My brother lives in Amesbury, MA and he measured 28”!  Every business was closed except Garwood’s.  How convenient that was.  We sipped brews and watched the blizzard from comfy warm seats over a blustering Lake Winnipesaukee.


Baring no flight issues, tomorrow its back to home sweet Victor.  It’ll be nice to relax for a weekend and enjoy the Super Bowl.  Then Wednesday it’s off to Manitowish, WI for my annual ice fishing trip before on the Fly Fishing Show circuit begins again later in February.


Never stop moving!

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!
