blog-July-29-2015-1-flyfishing-for-brooktroutI vividly remember sitting in dads lap back in the late 60’s and early 70’s on Saturday afternoons watching sports.  The minute The Wide World of Sports was over, on came The American Sportsman with Curt Gowdy.  My absolute most memorable episode was when Curt had Lee Wulff as his guest and Lee guided Curt in Labrador for gigantic brook trout.  At less than ten years of age I already had a goal in life – catch giant brook trout in Labrador!

blog-July-29-2015-3-mckenzie-river-lodge-labradorNow, another twenty years later, I’m living the dream of fishing around the world much like Curt and Lee did eons ago.  Starting Friday, thanks to Paul Ostiguy of McKenzie River Fly Fishing Lodge it’s off to Labrador.  Be ready for another ten days of exciting blogs!

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!
