Never Stop Casting

flyfishingGranny and I did some beach hopping today.  I even worked some rocky areas with hopes of some odd species or a snapper.  But attempts were unsuccessful in all locations.  Once again the surf was big and although I fought it, I could not find a fish.  No complaints however.  I’m in Baja with my lady.  Its warm.  Its sunny.  And every time I make a cast into that Pacific blue ocean, I’m fishing – and anything can happen!


Currier-WhitlockOn another note, we lost one of the nicest, most genuine and coolest guys in our sport, Dave Whitlock.  More than 30 years ago I first met Dave.  I approached him to sign his book to me.  It turned in to a 30 minute visit and I left with much more than an autograph.  Over the years working fly fishing shows together we became friends.  Dave was a mentor, an inspiration and someone I’ll always look up to.  One of my fondest memories was when Dave and I were the key speakers for a Simms Ice Out Event in Montana.  When we finished our regular work day, we spread out at a table and did artwork together while folks enjoyed.  Thanks for all you brought to me and our sport Dave – RIP!

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!
