Indian Summer on Maddon Creek

blog-Sept-23-2015-1-flyfishing-idahoI spent a beautiful day rowing Maddon Creek today with friends Ken Holder and Nati.  Ken built my first website fifteen years ago and maintained it as a favor for ten years.  But Ken has a real job and when my site got larger than he ever imagined a fishing bum could possibly need he called it quits.  Now under the guidance on another friend, Mark Kuhn, I do most of my site myself.

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!
