Fly Fishing with Kids

fly-fishing-with-kidsI didn’t have much time for fishing in NH today.  Mom and I headed to the nursing home to spend some time with dad this morning and he wasn’t in good shape.  I won’t get into it but he’s been in the home several years now and ended up here because of severe Parkinson’s and now dementia.  Its been rough on the family but especially for mom for years now.


Once I got back to our cottage there wasn’t enough time for a trip to Back Bay for sunfish so instead I paddled my nephew Eli around for rock bass.  He can fling a fly rod nicely and loves to fish.  I got him into a bunch of rock bass and a pumpkinseed.  It was good therapy for me and a blast for Eli.  Tomorrow morning I’m headed to Back Bay with my sister hoping to get in a good day of fishing.

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!
