Next Move

A presentation in Fresno Thursday night and a casting demo and a PowerPoint presentation each day during the Pleasanton, California Fly Fishing Show makes seven talks in four days. That doesn’t include book signings, demoing art and yakking it up with hundreds of people. It was awesome! But I’m flat out exhausted. And Granny is flat out exhausted too just from watching!

It’s been a great tour through California. It’s been nearly all work but what I do for work is fun as heck. I know half the fly fisherman in every city the Fly Fishing Show goes to but at the Pleasanton California Show I know most of them and its three days of catching up with old friends. Granny and I are absolutely beat but we are on our way home.

I’m just waking up here in Fernley, Nevada after we knocked off nearly five hours of our drive home back to Victor, ID after the show ended last night. We slept like rocks and now it’s back to the pavement. Weather permitting; we hope to get home by 5 PM tonight. I have birds to feed and bags to unpack and pack. Thursday its time to leave for the AMAZON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!
