Office Break on the Trout River

fly-box-artI’ve been fishing a ton and there are no complaints.  But behind the rod I’ve been putting in long hours of writing blogs and articles, editing photos from all this angling and also some artwork.  This is a Cliff Box I did over the weekend.




Currier-flyfishingThe work is paying off and I’m finally getting caught up.  I have lots of amazing photos to share in my presentations for next speaking season.  The photos from Bhutan, Colombia and Canada are beyond spectacular thanks to photographer friends Jim Klug in Bhutan and Jess McGlothlin in Colombia.  You saw some pics on the blogs but the big full resolution shots are beautiful.


After the Colombia trip I was contacted by Fly Fisherman Magazine and asked if I could do an article about my trip.  Honestly, for the time it takes its rarely worth it for me, but it’s been awhile since I did an article for FF Mag and no doubt the story will help my friends in Colombia with bookings.  The assignment took a fair chunk of my time.  About two weeks.  But the piece came out great and was excepted by the editor Ross Purnell over the weekend.  I’ll let everyone know when it hits the press.


WisconsinThis morning I was behind the computer screen around 5 AM organizing my 2024-25 winter speaking schedule.  By 9 I needed a break.  I felt like a nap but it was a bit early for that so I went trout fishing on our local river.  I wasn’t expecting much due to a current warming trend and also the fact that there was probably a Hex hatch last night, but I still went for it just to get out.


Let’s just say this river is gorgeous place for a hike.  Carrying the Winston just adds to the day.  It was invigorating and I’m happy to say in a half mile of water I saw no other anglers.  I had a pair of does swim the river below me and enjoyed a ton of birds.


brown-troutAs for the fishing, it was slow as expected.  I managed to hook a couple little brown trout like the one here.  No blank.  And now I’m refreshed and back behind the computer feeling like it’s officially been a great day!

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!
