Fly Fishing Presentation Season Begins in Missoula

by | Nov 14, 2019 | fly fishing speaker


A classic quick “Currier” turnaround from Mexico to Missoula, MT took place yesterday.  This means my winter speaking and travel season for 2019-2020 has officially started.  Early Wednesday morning I drove to Idaho Falls and caught the 7:45 AM flight to Salt Lake City then on up to Missoula to deliver my PowerPoint presentation, “Trout Bumming the World” to the Westslope Cutthroat Chapter of Trout Unlimited.


Jeff-Currier-flyfishingYou might be thinking couldn’t I have driven?  It’s only Montana.  Well, Victor, ID to Missoula, MT is listed on Maps as 5 hours 35 minutes.  That’s on dry roads.  Plain and simple, there’s no such thing as dry roads on a 5 hour stretch of Idaho and Montana in November.  11 hours behind the wheel could have easily turned to an 18 hour roundtrip.  Instead I worked on my computer during the flights and arrived in Missoula at noon – just in time for a burger at the famous Missoula Club.


Westslope-CutthroatsThe Westslopes had a terrific turnout for the event.  I counted 96 people which means there were likely over 100.  That’s good for these gigs.  And the first show of my season went smooth making me feel ready to rock for the upcoming show tour.


fish-artI’m already back in Victor where I have a heap of work to get done before Thanksgiving.  This includes plenty of Sharpie art on Cliff Fly Boxes and Yeti products for lucky angler Christmas gifts.  I also have two paintings to do and several writing projects.  These will all be fun.  What isn’t as fun for me, and it’s because I’m lucky enough to do it all the time, is packing for 18 days of saltwater fly fishing that starts November 29th.  Stay tuned for details!

Don’t forget my fish art for “Gifts for the Angler that has Everything” and my new fish decals!

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!
