This is the start of “Currier’s” first blog. It’s something I probably should have done a long time ago but knew that I’d never stay on top of it enough to make it worth it. Now it’s time. And I have time now because 23 years of working in the Jack Dennis fly shop in Jackson Hole Wyoming comes to an end in a week! I’m going full time with my art, doing presentations and hosting fly fishing trips. I will be attempting to work for myself and am incredibly excited for the new challenge. With this new lifestyle I plan to put more time into my website, fish even more and keep up this blog. The blog will keep you updated with my latest fishing, artwork and whatever else cool comes up. Enjoy! Jeff

    Jeff, first of all, congrats on deciding to first join the world-wide web with your very sucessful web site (maybe I had a little influence on that decision). And now, the evolution and complimentry blog! I first met you almost 20 years ago as a fresh faced kid in Jackson Hole, Wyoming at Jack Dennis Sports Fly Shop. Let’s check off just a few memories I have of you, before I’m too old to recollect … Ya know something? I caught my first carp on a clandestine trip to an even more top secret carp empoundment with you. I’ve carried your fly fishing gear when you were deathly ill with some Polish creepin’ crud at the World Fly Fishing Championships, way back when. By the way, I think you caught 75 or so trout that day, while I watched you dance on water. We fished in Australia, in lousy conditions, but still caught some Down Under Trout. And there are the lunches, so many of them, begging the bartender to put on the Cubbies game, sometimes they win and then once in awhile they lose. I’ve witnessed you evolve from a fly shop manager, to one emersed in the fly fishing life (you bum) and all that it entails. Best wishes with your books, DVDs, movies, art, lectures, new product endorsements deals, speaking engagements, casting demos and hopefully, more days on the river with you. The legacy and reputation that you have carefully crafted over the years, fish by fish, friend by friend, adventure by adventure, is truly now starting to bloom. Let’s not forget, that much of this would have never happened without your beautiful, gracious and loving wife, Granny. Your friend, Ken

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!
