January Fly Fishing Shows Complete

The hardcore show month of January is in the books.  I’m not a winter guy these days so I love the grueling schedule because it makes quick work of the cold dark days.  They fly by.


This past weekend was the first ever Edison New Jersey Fly Fishing Show.  Edison replaced the long time “Somerset” show.  The new venue is roomier and for the folks I talked to, in a better location to visit.  The only complaint I heard was about parking.  Evidently the show was so busy some folks parked nearly a mile away.  Next year there will be shuttles to prevent this.


The show wasn’t only busy with customers but for me also.  I gave five talks this week ranging from casting demos to PowerPoint presentations.  They all went well and after each I met many great folks that attended.  In addition to my speaking I did a heap of artwork on fly boxes and hats.


Its two weeks until my next speaking appearance.  This will be at the Indianapolis Boat, Sport and Travel Show February 17th & 18th.  This week I’ll be home catching up on some art orders and preparing a couple new presentations and then off to Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin for my annual ice fishing trip.


As I do the shows I make many new friends.  Often times afterwards my new friends try to “Friend” me on Facebook.  My personal page reached the maximum years ago and doesn’t allow me to accept more.   Its an easy fix however.  Simply “like” my business Facebook Page – Jeff Currier Global Fly Fishing.

    Golden trevally on the hat is about the size of the one I’ve caught to date. I’m guessing the other on the fly box is a blueish. A good east coast species

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!
