fly-fishingNot a moment in Wolfeboro, NH went by back in the day when my cousin Jon and I weren’t fishing Lake Winnipesaukee.  We basically lived out of a 12 foot row boat with a Mercury 7.5.  And when the motor was busted, which was often because two young teenage kids will run an engine hard, we fished from my Old Town Canoe.  Last night and again this morning Jon and I had a lot of laughs and caught a few fish together from the very same canoe on the very same waters.


flyfishing-bluegillIt’s amazing – its literally almost 50 years later and we are fishing together from this canoe.  When you’re twelve you can’t imagine being in your 50’s.  Unfortunately, our trip to Back Bay last night didn’t exactly produce like it did in the old days.  We use to to average 25 pickerel a trip with some nice largemouth bass mixed in.  Tonight it was a struggle to catch a bluegill.  In fact the majority of the catch were invasive rock bass.  We can blame this on the county’s continuous poisoning of the weeds in Back Bay for the last 20 years.

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!
