Fishing or Work?

largemouth-bassEvery so often I over do it with fishing and not getting my work or the basics of life done.  I’m in the dust this time and once you fall this far behind you need to decide, fish or write long detailed blogs.  I chose fishing so today blog is short.


Bob and I had a great early morning on a nearby lake and picked up a few of these handsome fellas!


Now Granny and I are heading out on a three day two night camping float trip.  I plan to elaborate about this one on Friday – but not if I fish Lake Superior this weekend!

    I respect your choice! Wisconsin days are for fishing, any remaining night is for work, mowing will just have to wait till you become “that house” in the neighbors talk about. LOL

    Thanks for supporting this decision Lance!

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!
