The Pleasanton Fly Fishing Show

blog-Feb-20-2014-redwood-national-parkGranny and I had a nice visit with friends in Portland, Oregon Monday and Tuesday that included a visit to one of my favorite restaurants, Jakes Crawfish Grill.  Yesterday we drove down to Eureka, California.  No particular reason for going to Eureka other than why not?  We’re in route to the Pleasanton Fly Fishing Show and Interstate 5 was boring us.  We made a side trip down the 199 from Grants Pass, through the Redwood forest and along some coast.   It was a wonderful drive that ended in some superb brew pubs in Eureka including the unique Siren.  So unique that I tried an18% alcohol brew.  Tasty but dangerous!

If you can make the Pleasanton Fly Fishing Show please track me down.  I’ll be doing art amongst the fly tiers and below is my presentation schedule:

Friday – 12:30 – Release Room – “Trout Bumming the World”

2:15 – Casting Pond – “Fly Casting 101”

Saturday – 12:15 – Casting Pond – “Fly Casting 101”

Sunday – 11:00 – Release Room – “Fly Fishing Saltwater – Bonefish to Billfish”

I hope to see you there!

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!
