blog-Sept-14-2015-1-honoring-veteransEach year I get to spend a day teaching war veterans how to fly fish out at Teton Pines in Jackson, WY.  The event is organized by Honoring Our Veterans of Jackson Hole and I’ve had the privilege of being a part of it for the last three years.  This year I have the rewarding opportunity to teach two of the events.  Today was a group of all women veterans and next Monday I’ll have the men.


The ladies caught on fantastically learning to cast and shoot line in short time.  This is great news because tomorrow they will be going on a guided fishing trip on the Snake River. During the afternoon session we put on some flies and picked up a few fish from the ponds.  Good luck tomorrow ladies!

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!
