Quick Trip to Midland, Michigan

by | Sep 17, 2018 | BeAlive

Jeff Currier and BealiveoutsideI’ve racked up a few frequent flier miles over the years but 2018 is becoming one of legend.  Thursday afternoon I hopped on Delta and traveled to Detroit.  I was picked up by BeAlive Media Vice President, Jonalyn Morris.  BeAlive is the company that made the short film about Granny and me last month.


We drove north to Midland, Michigan where the BeAlive studio is located and indulged on a killer sushi dinner with my friends from Scientific Anglers before retiring for the night.  The Scientific Angler Headquarters is just down the street from BeAlive.


Jeff Currier, Brad Befus and Scientific AnglersOn Friday morning I took over the @BeAliveoutside Instagram and spent the time visiting my friends at Scientific Anglers while being filmed live.  Longtime friend Brad Befus and crew showed me some new product and we casted lines on their casting pond.

Numerous folks tuned in on the live broadcast and asked me questions about everything from my favorite fish species to fish for to travel tips.  It was a blast.


I ended the morning decorating the wall of the bran-spanking new BeAlive office wall with a quick paint pen drawing of a brown trout.  I was a bit shy on needed colors so it came out a bit more artistic than my normal style.

Next in line is a jaunt back east to give a one night presentation at the Osterville Anglers Club and then a full day saltwater fly fishing seminar for the Cape Cod Fly Fishers.  Stay tuned because there will be some fishing!

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!
