Fishing in Lesotho with Tourette Comes to an End

blog-Nov-25-2015-1-jeff-currier-fish-artI packed the rods last night so there would be no 5 AM temptation to fish the camp pool.  Instead me, Granny and the Tourette fishing guides sipped coffee and reminisced about our great four days all while I left my mark at the Makhangoa Community Fishing Camp.  I haven’t done art in weeks so I broke out my sharpies and drew the brown that got away on their refrigerator.


blog-Nov-25-2015-2-clarens-south-africaAt 8 AM we descended on the four hour drive back to civilization.  Granny and I dumped our stuff back at the Clarens Inn and Backpackers.  Tonight we’re staying next to the “Beehive” in the “Greenhouse”. Then we had a nice lunch in Clarens and after said our goodbyes to my great friends of Tourette.  I never know where I’ll fish with them next but it’s always incredible so I can’t wait.


blog-Nov-25-2015-3-clarens-breweryNot much went on this afternoon and evening for fun.  I’m so far behind on the blog that we settled into the Clarens Brewery and I typed away all afternoon.  This evening we had some Italian food at a restaurant called Mosaic Pizzeria.


In the morning we start our last leg of the trip.  My friends from FlyCastaway will be arriving to take Granny and I to the famous Sterkfontein Dam for a few days of stillwater yellowfishing.


We are so grateful for Tourette Fishing – Try Fight it in Africa for inviting us to join them on guides’ week in Lesotho.

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!
