Pacific Surf Too Cool to Handle

by | May 7, 2017 | Uncategorized

We probably should’ve suspected a rough day of fishing.  Last night around dinner time it got cold here on the Pacific side of Baja.  Like in the 50°s cold!  Then this morning we woke up to the same and dense fog and clouds.  Didn’t matter though, we packed up the car and headed to no man’s land on the Pacific Ocean coast where I fished a few years ago with Sammy and Grant and had great luck.


Today didn’t provide any great luck however.  This photo doesn’t show just how intimidating and inhospitable the surf fishing really was.  Despite my stripping basket and my Clear Tip Titan Taper it was near impossible to get my fly out far enough.  Even if I did, the waves didn’t have enough gap between them for my fly to sink into the zone.


Tough fishing doesn’t get the “Currier’s” down however.  Just when you think you got it bad – check out this cow with the cactus stuck in his nose.  We all know the old saying, “A bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work”.


Tomorrow its back to the Sea of Cortez where the temperatures are immensely warmer.

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!
