Freezing on Boulder Lake

blog-May-12-2014-1-Boulder-Lake-WYI’ve pushed it to the limit.  I’m stressed out and out of time and I must get things in order.  I leave for Bhutan in the morning so here’s a blog about Boulder Lake in Wyoming that will be the shortest blog on record.


blog-May-13-2014-2-Jeff-Currier-flyfishing-Boulder-LakeI’m going to Bhutan till June 3.  This is a trip with the WWF for mahseer that came to fruition only two weeks ago.  Granny and I had to go camping otherwise wait till June.  We went to Boulder Lake and the weather Monday night was no less than a disgrace for mid May!


blog-May-13-2014-3-granny-currier-boulder-lake-wyWe were after big lakers on flies.  Tuesday morning it was 17º when we woke up.  Granny was dressed like we were ice fishing in January.  At least it started sunny but it went downhill fast.  We caught one measly laker.


blog-May-13-2014-4-boulder-lake-wyomingWas the trip worth it – absolutely.  The weather cleaned up at around 6 PM.  We had a bottle of red, homemade Thai food and a scorching driftwood fire.


Off to Bhutan .  Details of the trip to come en route!

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!
