jeff-currier-flyfishingThroughout this year I’ve ended up on several podcasts and in a couple of International Fly Fishing Magazines.  I’ve been bad about sharing these.  I think my “life in the fastlane” thus far this year kept me from giving these the proper attention.  Now that I’m kicking back at home for a month enjoying the summer I’m going to share them with you gradually when I don’t have a fishing blog to post.


Here’s an article that hit the press last week from the top Australian Saltwater Fly Fishing Magazine, In the Salt.  It’s called “The Chill Dude” – and Interview with Jeff Currier.  It’s a little insight into my life and some of my thoughts for future generations.  It starts on page 46.  The entire magazine is fantastic with many other great articles as well.  Enjoy!

    Cool story, I wanted to be a trout bum when i grew up, but never quite got there. I too like catching different species, not just the charismatic ones, but at a much smaller geographic scale. Is that an old Martin Reel set up in photo on page 51?

    Indeed that is a Martin Reel. Good eye. We sold those in the fly shop along with Abels right when they were invented. I couldn’t afford an Abel even at pro deal so I studied it and the big difference was the cork drag vs my Martins Teflon drag. So with the help of one of my genius fellow employees we bought a sheet of cork and turned all our Martins into cork drag Martins and they were damn near as nice as the Abels! Glad you also enjoy the species quest. Thanks for following the blog!

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!
