blog-June-13-2013-1-Fly-fishing-in-SloveniaFly fishing in Europe 2013 will go down as a “Monsoon Currier” classic.  Vladi and I fought through at least some heavy rain EVERY day of the trip and more than half the adventure we had rain all day.  Luckily, despite the tormenting weather, the goals were met.

blog-June-13-2013-2-Vladi-TrzebuniaFirst and most important, Vladi and I spent time together.  Vladi is a best friend and unfortunately because we live 6,000 miles apart we only fish together once every few years.  Our last visit was July of 2010 in Norway.

blog-June-13-2013-4-Jeff-Currier-in-SloveniaLast, I’ve now fished Slovenia.  Slovenia has been on my list a long time but been neglected, probably because all those crazy fish of the world entice me more.  But let me tell you, Slovenia did not disappoint.  This will go down as one of my top trips.  Enjoy these final pics!

    What is the Pazi mine? The skull and crossbones makes me wonder what they are mining.

    “Pazi” means be careful or watch for. We had to watch out for mines! Extremely dangerous fly fishing situation!

    What a cool experience. Looks like beautiful water man.

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!
