Off To Belize

Jeff-Currier-fishingIt has been a beautiful winter here in Idaho.  Cold, sunny, blue sky days.  Skiers aren’t happy due to the lack of snow but for me it’s been good.  Yeah I’d normally be out doing the shows and I miss that.  I miss the work and I miss seeing friends and meeting new ones.  But honestly, it has been quite relaxing.  I’ve been giving live Zoom presentations, painting, writing, working out and taking hikes.  I’ve had lunch with a couple friends I haven’t seen in a while such as Henry’s Fork legend, Mike Lawson, and Granny and I hit our local pub a couple nights a week.

That’s all for now.  As usual, when I’m traveling and fishing hard internationally, I don’t always get my blogs up the day I fish.  But I can assure you that even though they might be slow to post, you will indeed get the day by day accounts as fast as I can get them up.  In the meantime, expect a quick updates when possible from my Instagram – @jeffcurrier65 and FB – Jeff Currier Global Fly Fishing.


Stay tuned!

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!
