Never too Cold to Climb a Mountain

by | Jan 23, 2013 | Uncategorized | 3 comments

Despite being 4 below zero and windy this morning my brother in law Don and I couldn’t stomach to sit indoors. Instead we went for a hike. Not only did we bundle up to head for a hike, but Don suggested we summit Mt. Roberts near the famous Castle in the Clouds.

In less than two hours we completed the five mile round tripper. Unless you’ve experienced the damp cold of New Hampshire I can’t explain how brutally cold this hike began before we actually warmed up during the incline! But long story short, the hike was awesome and the views of frozen Lake Winnipesaukee were spectacular.

    I love Mt. Shaw and the Belknap range across the lake for a quick hike in the winter especially when it’s too cold to hit the big whites to the north. Nice report.

    Did you guys celebrate with a snow cone?! 🙂

    It is hard to explain that damp New England cold until you’ve experienced it. Have a great show season.

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!
