January Fly Fishing Shows in the Rearview

by | Jan 30, 2017 | Uncategorized

The shows come and go so fast it’s unreal.  The Somerset Fly Fishing Show is in the books and in fact, the entire work month of January.  For me it was four shows (Denver, Boise, Boston and New Jersey) and 22 seminars mixed on casting ponds and PowerPoint rooms.  As crazy as it sounds to some, I loved every minute of it.  I love my job and really enjoy teaching fly fishing and entertaining with my photos and stories.  Keep me in mind when your club or show needs a fly fishing speaker.


In addition to my teaching and entertaining I wore out a heap of Sharpies this month.  I drew on at least 30 fly boxes, computers and now a new thing, baseball caps.  Bring em on, I love to draw as much as I love to entertain.


Next on my agenda is a few more days in NH with the family then home for a week.  I’m especially looking forward to putting on my back-county skis and evenings at the Victor pubs.  Then it’s off to Manitowish Waters in Wisconsin for a few days of ice fishing before show-time again.


Keep the body moving. . . .

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!
