Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo 2017

by | Mar 15, 2017 | great waters fly fishing show

This weekend I speak at my last Fly Fishing Show of the season.  Really?  Winter zipped by that fast?  Indeed it did and I’m ending with a bang with my first ever appearance at the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo in St. Paul, Minnesota March 17-19.


I’ve known of this show for many years and from what I understand if you live in range, you don’t want to miss it!  What’s special about speaking in MN is that this is my old stomping grounds from back in the 80’s.  Therefore, afterwards I’ll be chucking flies with my college buddies in Wisconsin’s Driftless Area.


Fellow speakers are friends George Daniel and Dave Whitlock and more.

Here’s my schedule for the weekend


For me this is my arrival day and although I won’t be giving any presentations I plan to be doing art at my booth the minute I get off the plane which means from around 3PM till 7PM show closing.


10:45 – “Casting in the Wind and the Double Haul”

12:00 – Hutton Arena – “Four Seasons of the Yellowstone Trout Bum”

2:30 – Room A – “Saltwater Fly Fishing – Bonefish to Billfish”


10:30 – “Casting in the Wind and the Double Haul”

11:45 – Hutton Arena – “Fly Fishing in Warmwater – Bass, Pike, Carp and More”

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!
