One Last Trip to Back Bay for 2021

fish-new-hampshireAfter a fun family weekend kayaking (but not fishing) on the Saco River near North Conway we made it back to Wolfeboro to rap up our trip.  We are flying home on Wednesday.  There are always a few things I need to officially say goodbye to for the year here in NH: First my smallie waters which I will do early Tuesday and the other is Back Bay.  Granny and I paddled the canoe there around 6 PM this evening.


Currier-flyfishingFishing in Back Bay has been lackluster the last few years and my one trip here last week was really slow.  Being we weren’t expecting much, I packed beers for me and champagne for Granny.  She lounged from the front on cushions, passing her empty glass to me by canoe paddle.  I made some casts here in there but for the most part simply took it all in.  After all, Back Bay is where I truly fell in love with fishing more than 50 years ago.

At 8 PM we tied up at the Yacht Club and had a nice dinner at Nolan’s.  Tomorrow I’m going solo at 4 AM for one more big smallmouth on the popper

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!
