Iceland Here I Come!

blog-July-31-2014-1-icelandicflyfishermenIf there’s one place I’ve been striving to get to the last 25 years it’s Iceland.  Many customers that I served during my fly shop days in Jackson, Wyoming went to Iceland annually.  The stories of its beauty and the numbers of Atlantic salmon they caught was mind blowing.  But so was the cost.


I worked some angles to get there.  As you know my customer/friends have generously taken me some great places over the years.  Iceland came up several times, however it never transpired.

50 countries and I hadn’t been to Iceland! They shrieked.

    Wow, Jeff, very nice. I am glad your friends have chosen to host you in Iceland, as I know I will enjoy reading your posts about this special fishery from your unique and highly experienced perspective. Unfortunately it is yet another great place I am sure I will never get to visit–so really look forward to hearing about it. Safe travels and best regards. –KK

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!
