Open Season on Victor, Idaho Meadow Voles

blog-March-11-2015-1-meadow-volesFor those of you on the East Coast, I’m sorry, but our weather here in Idaho has been no less than phenomenal.  Other than one day it’s been in the 50°s and 60°s for the two straight weeks I’ve been home.  The one cold day it snowed 8” and I got in a fantastic cross country ski.  All the snow melted the next day.


blog-March-11-2015-2-meadow-vole-damageWhen the snow leaves the yard there’s an awful mess caused by meadow voles.  This year is the worst on record.  My lawn is chewed to pieces, there’s holes everywhere, tree roots gnawed, aspen trees girdled and tulip bulbs eaten.  I’ve declared all-out war on the tiny rodent pests and my air rifle is at my side.  They’re not easy to hit but as you can see above I’ve reached American sniper status.  I can’t tell you how many I’ve shot at this point.  And they don’t go to waste.  The magpies are thrilled with the fresh carnage.


blog-March-11-2015-3-mikey-wierA reminder to those of you living in my area, March 13, this Friday night, the Fly Fishing Film Tour hits Jackson Hole (f3t).  The entertaining group of fly fishing flicks will show at the Jackson Hole Center for the Arts.  Doors open at 6PM and the movie starts at 7.  Tickets are available at WorldCast Anglers, Orvis of Jackson Hole or purchase them on line.


blog-March-11-2015-4-jeff-currier-&-mike-dawesFor those not in my area, the f3t is on tour and can been seen in most major US cities.  Here’s the schedule so you can catch the entertainment in your area.  If you have any interest in carp on the fly be ready for the last segment – Carpland – in which Mike Dawes and I have provided some Blackfoot Reservoir mirror-monsters!

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!
