Fly Fishing Talk Brings Me to Oregon

by | Oct 10, 2017 | Uncategorized

I slipped into Portland, Oregon last night and am presently staying with my old friend Mike LaSota (Michigan Mike).  Mike’s last time on the blog was when we fished in Gabon in 2016.  What brought me to Portland was to give my presentation, “Streamer Tricks for More and Larger Trout” for the Flyfisher’s of Oregon Club.  But I never come to Oregon without fishing a few days with Mike after I work.


My talk went fantastic this evening and first thing tomorrow Mike and I are dragging his drift boat to the coast.  It’s our intention to catch some chinook salmon on the fly around the Pacific City area.  I’ve not ever fished there before nor have I caught a “true” native chinook salmon fresh from the ocean before.  Should be a blast!!

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!
