Home Sweet Idaho

by | Feb 6, 2018 | fishing art

I’m not home often these days.  It’s weird.  It wasn’t planned this way.  It just sort of happened – a career in fly fishing that includes an annual show/speaking tour then months of fishing and travel.  I wouldn’t trade it for anything but at times I miss my home in Victor, Idaho.


I’m amidst and entire week home.  The stopover is all about catching up on stuff and getting ready for the next run of travels.  One of the main things I catch up on is my art.  This week included painting this fine permit caught in Belize on Christmas day 2017. (A week after I was there suffering through brutal weather and no permit!).


On Thursday I’ll begin life on the road again, only it doesn’t start with work.  Friday I’ll be ice fishing around Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin.  This is an annual trip with friends to my old stomping grounds in the Great Northwood’s.  I love it up there and I love this trip more than most.


Northern pike, perch, walleye, crappie, bluegills and perhaps a musky – look out!

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!
