Life is So Good Roosterfishing is So Bad

The good news today is that Sammy got up and his jellyfish-stung legs still work. The bad news is we caught two small roosterfish and that’s it. We didn’t exactly charge back to the beach this morning but we made it there and fished hard all day. We went to one of my favorite beaches on the planet. A beach that I spent a month camping on with friends back in 1996. It’s where I caught my first roosterfish and learned a lot about how to catch them from numerous mistakes. Although the fish weren’t there, the place always brings back a lot of fond memories.
The most exciting thing all day was watching the turtles swim by. I always see the occasional but this week there’s been a ton swimming the beaches. I’ve still yet to see one come up on the beach and lay her eggs. However, today I found where one did but then a coyote dug them up and ate them all.Unfortunately, that’s about the size of todays. Tomorrow is our last day this trip. We will dream for the best.

    Good to hear Sammy is back on his foot. May the fishing gods bless you with a good last day of fishing.

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!
