Official Practice of the World Masters

by | Feb 11, 2019 | africa

flyfishing-AfricaWe had a slow “Official” practice on Jansen’s Dam near Dullstroom.  Mike and I were completely skunked while the rest of the guys caught a couple.  Honestly, none of us fished hard but we rather got a feel for the competition boats and relaxed.  And watched a few of the other teams practice!


fly-fishing-south-africaTomorrow the World Masters Competition begins.  I drew the Spekboom River for the morning and the Nooitgedacht Dam in the afternoon.  I know these waters and expect to do well.  I expect our entire team to do well!


The blog will go quiet for a few days as I’ll likely be too tired and focused on winning this tournament than writing.  But as always, I’ll get it caught up on the way home.


Be sure to keep track of my upcoming travels around the world!

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!
