I Need to Go Fishing!

flyfishingIf you’re thinking I need to get my butt out fishing because the blog has been way too quiet – I agree!  But that yard sale, spring clean up and overall catching up on a lot of things after that wonderful trip to Wisconsin set me back a little.  Furthermore, May is not a great time for fishing here in Idaho.  Spring runoff has our rivers running high.  The only fisheries are tailwaters and because they are the only fishing, everyone and their brother is there.  I’m not into the crowds no matter how good the fishing is.


flyfishingI’m hoping to get on a lake here soon.  Jenny is on the books for Thursday but its weather permitting.  As I type I’m watching a gross wet snow cover the backyard and the forecast for the next week isn’t too great.  The more I get done now the more I can fish later.  And plus, these Western tanagers are pretty entertaining as I work.


I’ve also been doing a Zoom presentation a week for several fly fishing clubs.  This week I’m delivering “Streamer Tricks for More and Larger Trout” for Deep Creek Fly Fishers in CA.  I’ve spoke to Deep Creek twice in person over the years but this will be from my den – incredible how things have changed the last year.  This being said, I am doing a live full day seminar in Memphis in less than two weeks.  I am stoked to present to a live crowd for the first time in a while!


flyfishing-booksIn my clean up I’ve sorted about 20 classic fly fishing books I’m going to part with for half the cover price.  If anyone wants a list Contact me.  Some of you cleaned out my rod and reel closet now I need to thin out the book shelf.  And don’t forget my web store with Father’s Day a month away!

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!
