Happy 4th of July!

fly-fish-idahoI haven’t fished on the 4th of July in at least 25 years.  I always worked the 4th when I was in the fly shop.  But even since then, it’s been a day spent in Victor, Idaho with the morning parade, bands at the Knotty Pine and the rest of the time with friends playing whiffle ball, bean bag and partying.  With festivities completely canceled this year, at 6 AM this morning I found myself taking my friends Steve and Lisa Berry in search of some big rising trout on the Teton.


idahoWell, turns out we could’ve stayed home.  The Teton was high, cold and off color from rain and snow in the mountains earlier this week while I was still in NH.  That’s not to say there weren’t a couple opportunities.  I had a shot at a bank feeder that I should have made and so did Steve.  But all in all, the action is likely a few days away and we got blanked.  It happens.  Time to crack one and light up the barbeque.

    Jeff: It has been a while since we fished the “One Fly” together but I love to read your blog to follow your travels. The last time I saw you I was living in FL where I chased Tarpon, trout and reds and tried to sharpen my Salt water skills. I have relocated to the Wye River in Queenstown, MD. If you have any plans to head to the mid-Atlantic, let me know and I will see what I can arrange for you to fish the Chesapeake Bay tributaries as the guest of American Rivers and other conservation organizations. I don’t fish much any more because of my advancing age and associated infirmities. But I love to promote clean water causes.

    I remember our One Fly day together well. It was a while ago but I remember we had a great time. I’ll keep your invitation in mind. Not sure I’ll make MD anytime soon but with my international travels in a halt you never know. Take care of yourself

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!
