Remembrances from Flyfishing Kendjam Brazil

by | Aug 6, 2016 | Uncategorized

blog-Aug-6-2016-1-peacock-bass-fishing-kendjamI don’t like departing the comforts of Victor, Idaho during summer.  Fishing my own rivers, coffee on the back porch watching humming birds and listening to Cubs games on my XM are hard to leave.   But I travel anyhow and I never regret.  The past ten days fishing with Untamed Angling and Ben Furimsky in Kendjam Brazil was no less than phenomenal!

blog-Aug-6-2016-2-ben-furimsky-flyfishing-kendjamA special thanks to my friends Rodrigo Salles and Marcelo Perez of Untamed Angling for making this incredible journey possible.  If you too would like to experience a similar trip to Kendjam feel free to Contact me.  This is a trip that we at Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures can book for you.

Here are some final photos from this incredible adventure.

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!
