Madison Gallatin Trout Unlimited

by | Dec 10, 2015 | Uncategorized

blog-Dec-10-2015-1-yellowstoneI’ve been running wild since returning from Africa.  I’ve been drawing on Cliff Boxes for folks for Christmas gifts, shipping coffee mugs and getting ready for a very intense speaking tour for 2016.  To really put the pressure on myself, a couple months ago I accepted my annual gig to speak up at Madison Gallatin Trout Unlimited in Bozeman, Montana which I did last night.


blog-Dec-10-2015-2-snow-drivingThe reason I accepted the gig is because I love seeing the folks in Bozeman and as always it went very well and I had a blast.  I presented a brand new show that I’ll also be taking on the road with me this winter called “Tricks and Tactics for Fly Fishing the World’s Best Flats”.  I’m always excited when I get to present a new show and even more so that the new program was a hit.


blog-Dec-10-21015-3-quake-lakeI drove to Bozeman.  After flying for 40 hours last week, the freedom you feel driving your own car is incredible.  I had the radio blasting and took in the winter scenery along the Henry’s Fork and Madison much of the way.  But coming home today in a snowstorm on icy roads – not so nice.  I decided to take the back way along the Gallatin River through the outer part of Yellowstone National Park in hopes to see some wildlife and to peek at Hebgin and Quake Lake.  Instead it was a white knuckler that took almost six hours!  Nonetheless I made it and did get a look at a cold frozen Quake Lake and even stopped for a visit with my friend Kelly Galloup at the Slide in.


That’s life in the fast lane.  Next on the fishing agenda – Baja with Sammy Vigneri on Saturday!

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!
