blog-June-7-2013-1-Idrijac-River-SloveniaRain, rain and more rain today.   We hung around the Pri Jazbecu till 11 then went to the Idrijca River and threw on the waders and permanently wet rain jackets.  Vladi’s foot is almost better so he was ready to fish.  We went right to where we knew of a pod of rising rainbows.  They were there and Vladi spent the afternoon sitting on the rock and caught five.


blog-June-7-2013-2-rainbow-trout-in-SloveniaI went on yet another marathon walk.  I was hoping to relive the hike I took a few days ago with another big marble on a dry fly.  Unfortunately today was not the same.  I found only two fish.  One was a respectable rising rainbow that I jumped and lost.  Then I found this big rainbow nymphing.  I enticed him to a parachute Adams.  I came close to my first skunk of the trip today but instead I eked it out.  No blanks in Slovenia!

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!
