Lucky to Catch a Few Bonefish!

Hurricane-IotaNot much fishing today.  We faced what we’ve had every day since Sunday – heavy wind and rain.  In fact, it rained so hard from when we woke up until 9 AM that we didn’t leave for fishing until 10 AM.  The wind was a steady 30 MPH so our only option was to fish the protected flats behind the Casa Blanca Lodge Island once again.


Jerry-Arnold-FlyfishingMiraculously, we didn’t see any rain for our entire session of fishing which we took to the end time of 4 PM.  But, there were few fish to find.  No doubt, most flats fish are somewhere hiding from the fringe of Hurricane Iota.  We saw a whopping dozen or so bonefish on flats where we would normally see hundreds.  The good news however, we caught three!

    You youngsters don’t realize how great it is to just be there and able to face just about anything old Mother nature throws your way, and then catch fish on top of that!
    This is one of those times you will recall in your twilight years and say to a buddy, ” hey, remember the wind and rain when we were at —- —— and we still caught fish”

    Yup it builds character Jack. No doubt about it. And, in a sick way, I like bad weather. Its a good thing because I certainly find a lot of it around the planet! Second major tropical storm in 11 months!

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!
