Last Wisconsin Camping Trip of the Year

Hayward-WisconsinOctober 27 & 28, 2022 

Granny has been heavily devoted to our new home.  The 1984 fixer-upper needed a ton of work when we bought it back in May.  We’ve learned a lot and nibbled away at it all summer.  Since we got floors and half a kitchen early this month, lately Granny’s been decorating.  She loves it.  I hate it.  But the weather was glamourous the last couple days so I insisted she take a break and do a little camping and fishing with the Ruby Van.


Granny-CurrierThere isn’t much to say about our fishing.  It’s surprising being we went to the same waters I caught three muskies on during the float Wednesday.  But that’s the nature of the beast.  The weather was so nice that the muskie bite was off and despite lots of wading and long casts with big flies, we got nothing more than one small pike on each day.


fly-fishingAny time you can sit around a campfire in late October in Northern Wisconsin however, is a great trip.  I trimmed off all dead branches from the trees on our lot last week and packed them up for the jaunt.  Last night we had three hours of dancing flames under the stars.  In the background we heard barred owls and coyotes.


Though it will be our last fishing and camping trip in WI this year, its not the last camping of the year.  I’m actually headed up to Iron River with the van to hang around the campfire with a bunch of college buddies passing through WI tomorrow night.  Then next week its off to Mexico for a month.  There will be some beach camping this trip as well.  More on this adventure in coming blogs!

    Great to see Granny out and about! Seems to be tough for everyone this year. Low clear water.

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!
