Let the Games Begin

All One Fly Contestants know where they are fishing and the names of their guides. My draws are doable. I got one of the worst stretches on the Snake in Wyoming – South Park to Prichard for Saturday. This is the most heavily fished section of the entire river. Big fish are far and few between and unfortunately big fish are what you need to be competitive. You get what you get and make the best of it. And the truth is, someone on our team was going to get this stretch so why not me. I will make something good of it. Sunday however, I drew the Upper South Fork in Idaho. Even if I do poorly on Saturday I should be able to do very well on the Upper South Fork.

That’s it. Kick back and watch folks. I’m really excited. I miss my competition days of the past on Team USA Fly Fishing. This weekend will be great fun!

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!
