blog-May-10-2014-1-yellowstonecutthroatDo you like fishing the Teton River of Idaho and its many tributaries?  If so you should be fans of Friends of the Teton River (FTR).  This non profit organization works with the Teton Valley community to ensure clean water, healthy streams and abundant fisheries in the upper Teton watershed.


blog-May-10-2014-ftr-jeff-currier-fish-artI was recently asked to donate artwork so they could create a bumper sticker-like stamp to be used to raise funds for future projects.  Until recently I’ve only painted the fish – no movement – only the fish.  After much practice, I came up with this rising cutthroat with the back side of the Tetons in the distance.  The end result – the Friends of the Teton River bumper sticker of which I already have proudly stuck to the back of my Explorer.


Everyone who fishes in Idaho should be sporting this cool looking sticker.  Soon you can order them online at the FTR website.  However, if you want to be one of the first to get one contact FTR direct at or do it the old fashioned way and mail a $10 check to:

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!
