North America

Jeff-Currier-North-America-pageGrowing up in New England with a fly rod gave Jeff a quick start on his freshwater fish list.  The trout fishing was mediocre at best near his home but the warmwater fish species were abundant and cooperative.  Most of Jeff’s fishing in North America has taken place in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana.  However, Jeff’s an opportunist and where he goes his fly rod goes.  Jeff has also fished in the states of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, NebraskaNevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia and Canada’s provinces of Labrador, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan.
