blog-July-27-2016-1-flyfishing-kendjam-brazilNo, it’s not the popular time to be heading fly fishing in the Amazon, but it’s the best time for the region of Kendjam.  This beautiful area is home to its own peacock bass species, various pacus and PLENTY more cool fish that I must catch before this party we call life is over.  This trip is possible because of my good friends Rodrigo Salles and Marcelo Perez of Untamed Angling and I’m thrilled that they will be on the trip as well.


blog-July-27-2016-2-flyfishing-kendjam-untamed-anglingI’m presently traveling to Miami for the night and after a few hours on the permit flats of Biscayne Bay early in the morning, I’ll be headed for Manaus, Brazil.  My American partner on this adventure is Ben Furimsky, director of the Fly Fishing Shows.  In addition to the extraordinary fishing we’re expecting to experience, we’ll be getting filmed by a South American film company that will be submitting their work for the 2017 International Film Festival (IF4).


I’ll have more details about our trip before leaving Manaus for the fishing Saturday morning.  This should be some interesting blogs.   As always, I may not be able to post blogs while on the trip but they will post daily upon my return.

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!
