Nearly a Month of Warmwater Flyfishing Comes to an End

Nearly a month of warmwater fly fishing that started with the Johnny Boyd Carp Classic on Blackfoot Reservoir June 1-3 followed by the Georgia Speaking Tour through mid-June to the last ten days here in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire ended today.  It was a fantastic run.  I can never get enough of the warmwater fish.


My sister and I hit the lake early this morning but it was like a graveyard.  I think the amount of speeding boats has put the fish in a state of shock.  To give you an idea how the fishing was – this colorful redbreast sunfish was our only catch.  He’s gorgeous though and was a good one to end on.


This afternoon I visited with my dad one last time.  He’s been the only bad part of this month long adventure.  He is not doing well.  We got him out of the nursing home to camp for an hour today but it was a struggle for all and I’m not sure he even knows he came.


Tonight I partied down with cousins who have all arrived at camp for the 4th of July.  Then I had dinner with mom outside at Garwoods in Wolfeboro.  It was a great night that ended with me leading the kids to a night swim.


It’s now well past midnight and I leave for Idaho at 5 am.  It will be a few days at least before I get on the water again.  There’s a ton of yard work and catching up on things at home.  And I need some rest before the 4th of July in good ole Victor, Idaho!

    Love the stories of time spent with family, it’s such an important part of life. Keep ’em coming!

    I couldn’t agree more Kevin. I’m so lucky to be able to mix family and fishing together no matter where we end up.
    Part of that is loving all species of fish!

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!
