Honoring Our Veterans

blog-Sept-19-2013-1-Honoring-Our-VeteransWhen I was fishing against my opponent and friend Paul Bruun in the Jackson Hole One Fly our most important discussion was about a group of wounded veterans that were coming to Jackson, Wyoming to learn to fly fish.  “Who teaches them”, I asked.  All Paul knew was that he and his wife Jean were but figured they might need others.  First thing after the contest I contacted Sandra Bockman, the head of Jackson Hole’s “Honoring Our Veterans”, and signed on as an instructor.

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!
