Fishermen’s Dinner with Friends of the Teton

blog-June-6-2014-jeff-currier-speaking-to-ftrIt’s a good thing I don’t accept jet-lag because I hit the ground running this week.  Tonight I spoke to a large enthusiastic crowd for Friends of the Teton River (FTR) at their annual banquet.  I presented a short conservation oriented speech called “More Amazing Fish”.  The talk opened a lot of eyes.  It seems many fly fishers  still think the only fish out there are trout.  Afterwards I had folks asking all kinds of questions about the other great fish species there are out there in the world.


Its back to work for now but next week its Henry’s Fork time followed by a surprise warmwater adventure to New Hampshire that I absolutely can’t wait for!

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!
