Playing Catch Up Between Trips

Jeff-CurrierThis may have indeed been the longest gap between me posting blogs in the more than 11 year history of my blog.  And a few of you have let me know your concerns because you enjoy it.  I understand.  But there’s no need to panic.  The blog isn’t going anywhere.


Baja-AnglersI’ve been home since Baja.  It’s been a typical spring in Victor, Idaho with lots of sloppy cold weather.  I could get out fishing but instead I’ve been writing, doing art and did two Zooms.  I also have hours upon hours of editing photos from the Arizona carp trip and Baja.  Some of the photos are exceptional and the new additions to my PowerPoint presentations will blow your mind!


fly-box-artIt’s been super fun doing the art because while I create there’s been NCAA Basketball and a few spring training games running in the background.  I love having sports back and am ready for baseball season tomorrow.  We had our Fantasy Baseball draft the other night and my team is looking solid!


fish-artBetween the art and office work I’ve been hiking during the snow squalls, rode the bike on the few sunny days and been hitting the light weights and working the body core.  Staying in the best shape I can is critical for my fishing.  Core strength helps me balance in big waves from the bow of a skiff or for dodging rogue waves from the rocks.  And no doubt, all the exercises together give me that extra endurance needed to fish hard ALL day.


organizing-fliesI’m about to head to the field again.  My traveling life is coming back strong and next week I’m headed to Oregon.  I’ll be fishing with my friend Mike LaSota.  We’re keeping plans loose but I know we’ll dunk Clousers for walleye and Spring Chinooks on the Columbia.  If weather permits we may head to the coast for steelhead.  Who knows?  If there’s fins involved it’s all good!  I just hope somewhere in this mess I have the right flies!

Stay tuned. . . .

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!
