    Unreal. I really appreciate that you always take the time and energy to document your trips. It’s always fun to follow the day to day goings on and see the outcome. I know it’s a lot of work. Thanks for the effort.

    Fabulous posts. Ive always wanted to go to Guyana since I was a little kid. I remember Marlin and Jim exploring it back in the day when my favorite show was Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom. Once again thank you for the diversions that you give me from an inside job. I sure some day you make a coffee book of your adventures. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

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!
