Laying Low in April

by | Apr 18, 2014 | Uncategorized

I’ve been quiet since returning from Sudan.  I came home to heaps of work.  If you look back at my 2014 schedule I’ve been home a mere 15 days.  That will put anyone behind in the normal day life.

 

blog-April-18-2014-Jeff-and-Charles-CurrierI also spoke to Boston Fly Casters in Massachusetts just the other night.  So I barely got home from Sudan then it was off to the East Coast.  Fun thing about speaking to Boston Fly Casters is that my dad belongs to this long historic club.  Due to his health he hasn’t been to a meeting in years.  This is a sport jacket and tie club and I had to borrow one from dad.  So why not bring him along also?

 

We had a great time.  My program was “Fly Fishing through Midlife Heaven”.  I’m not sure dad knew all the places I’ve been in the last few years.  He knows now and said he loved the show.

 

blog-April-18-2014-wolfeboro-new-hampshireAfter a nice weekend in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire I’m back in Idaho and settling in for a month.  I plan to work my butt off on my book, “The First 50 Years”, catch up on art, work in the yard and get some well needed rest.  I’m sure I’ll sneak out on the water a few times but runoff starts any minute and fishing isn’t the best once it starts.  As far as fishing I may just have to focus on packing for mahseer in Bhutan.  Bhutan you say?  I’m crossing my fingers – stay tuned!

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!
