Goal Accomplished!

by | Jun 17, 2012 | Uncategorized

I left home around 7 AM in order to get a couple hours of fishing in on the Henry’s Fork before I did my presentation at Henry’s Fork Day.  When I arrived the weather was calm and warm and I walked about a mile into the Harriman Ranch before spotting two quality risers.  With limited time I knew I had to get one of them to keep my “streak” of a nice big rainbow everyday this week.  Sure enough, I fed the first one my Pale Morning Dun.  The massive fish ate the roughed up imitation and I set but nothing.  I missed him.  That made the other riser extremely important.  I regrouped and after about ten minutes of working him with my PMD I hooked and landed the gorgeous 18” trout.  I met my goal for the week!

It’s been a fantastic week on the Last Chance and Ranch section of the Henry’s Fork.  A lot of huge rainbows on tiny dry flies – not sure life could be any better.

Tomorrow it’s off to Baja to fish with my pals Sammy Vigneri and Grant Hartman for roosterfish.  I’ll do my best to keep the blog rocking.  As always, if I fall behind I’ll catch up.
When I get home next Sunday its right back to the Henry’s Fork for my fishing Marathon – the longest fishing day of the year.  In case you’re not sure what I’m talking about, check out the previous years:
Stay tuned. . . .

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!
