Monsoon Currier Strikes New Hampshire

blog-May-31-2015-1-flyfishing-with-jon-blakeThirty-five years ago on any given summer Saturday night you’d find me in Back Bay enjoying the best chain pickerel fishing you could imagine with my cousin Jon.  Since those early days we’ve only seen each other about five times and only fished together once.  Today Jon drove two hours all the way up from Peabody, Massachusetts so we could enjoy a morning session of bass fishing together here in Wolfeboro, NH.  We lasted a mere hour on the water.

blog-May-31-2015-2-jeff-currier-&-jon-blakeWe lasted just long enough to scrape up one smallie and laugh at ourselves then returned to camp soaking wet and shivering like we did many times together as kids.  The only difference was that our Grammy wasn’t there to make us hot chocolate.  Instead we made the hot drink ourselves and shot the bull for about two hours and watched the rain and wind from the comforts of the porch.


Jon left for home around noon and Granny and I are chilling out at the parent’s house with other old friends.  Apparently this storm is huge and fishing opportunities look grim for the next 48 hours.  Monsoon Currier strikes again.  Stay tuned. . . .

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!
