Quiet but Alive and Well

flyfishing-seminarsIf you’re a regular blog follower and wondering why the lack of posts, it’s plain and simple, I’m not fishing now.  I was supposed to be in Baja but we had to do some last minute rescheduling.  Instead, it’s my usual life at home.  I’m working on a large size “Flats Grand Slam” painting which includes a bonefish, permit, tarpon and snook all in one piece.  Its coming along well and soon I’ll be posting it here and on my Instagram and Facebook.


I’ve also been writing a feature article for Voyage de Peche Magazine of France, “5 Continents 5 Memorable Fish”.  I’m certain very few of you have seen the colorful magazine because it’s all in French but it’s a great one and they assign a topic to me every couple years.  You can catch a few of my past articles with them here: “The Treasures of Kendjam”, “Capitaine on the Fly – Gabon” and “48 Hours in Dubai”.


fish-artI’ve also been Zooming up a storm.  I’m getting kind of used to doing presentations from my den these days.  Its nice not having the stress of catching an early morning flight in a snowstorm and wondering if I’ll make it to my show.  If you belong to a fly fishing club or have an upcoming event and need a speaker, be sure to contact me.  I have over 20 PowerPoint presentations to offer.


Last but not least, I’m keeping in shape with lots of hikes and hitting the light weights.  And the reason to stay in shape is there’s plenty of fishing on the horizon.  Next week its off to Arizona for ten days of fly fishing for carp followed by the rescheduled trip to Baja.  Do not fear, my rods never sleep. . . . .

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!
