Good Times Speaking in the Home State

Western-Idaho-Fly-Fishing-ExpoI had clear sailing from Victor to Boise Idaho for the Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo.  But even when the roads are dry, winter driving has its hazards.  Just west of Arco an oncoming semi flung a rock so hard it damn near came through the windshield.  Luckily it didn’t and soon I was kicking back at the Lift with long time pals Pete Erickson and Greg Gaddis.


Jeff-Currier-fly-casting-demonstrationsThe popular Idaho Fly Fishing Show took place Friday and Saturday and is always a blast to speak at.  In two days delivered six fly casting demonstrations and three PowerPoint presentations.  I was taxed when the show doors closed Saturday night but despite being tired I hit the road and made it home just after midnight.  Any chance to sleep in my own bed is worth the effort!


fly-fishing-seminarsNext in line is the Marlboro Massachusetts Fly Fishing Show and it starts on Friday.  After I make the trek across country I’ll post my schedule and more info.  For now it’s time to get unpacked from Boise and packed for the east.  And hopefully a little rest!

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!
