fly fishing presentersI’m moving fast and falling behind on my blog and IG updates and this one will be short and quick as well because we are making our way to The Pleasanton CA Fly Fishing Show in the Ruby Van straight through a miserable massive winter storm.  The driving so far since we left Wisconsin last week has been terrible and this particular drive is especially horrific.  We have never experienced wind like this along with snow, ice and closed roads.  Instead of taking the 70 from Denver we had to head south to Albuquerque and cut across NM and AZ.  And we still hit hectic driving!


The Denver Fly Fishing Showfly-fishing-art was fantastic.  Thanks to everyone who came and visited our booth and attended my many seminars.  Granny and I had a blast.  While the big crowds at my talks is always a highlight, I also enjoyed doing numerous pieces of art on fly boxes, packs and hats.  My favorite piece was for my friend Lance Tomar.  This is the inquisitive Picasso Triggerfish chasing a shrimp pattern.

    Thanks again for your beautiful work on another great Picasso for me.. Can’t believe you had to deal with bad weather on top of that terrible pothole filled interstate 40!!! Sure hope your mugs & steins made it to CA in one piece.

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!
