Rescheduled and Scheduled

by | Mar 5, 2011 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

The weather caused cancellation of my hosted Brazil trip this week was about as much as I could handle. There was less than 48 hours before take off. It’s not in my make up to handle such a let down or for as much emailing, talking on the phone and paperwork as I had to do and deal with these past few days. As an angler that simply hosts cool trips on occasion, dealing with the disaster was a true test of endurance. But it’s done. I sprung the horrible news on all my guests. I helped them cancel airline tickets. And today I got us rescheduled. We will be in the Amazon December 3-10, 2011. It’s a long way away but changing the plan to avoid the floods was the smart move and fortunately my guests are well traveled and realized I had no control of the situation.

The floods in the Amazon are very unusual for this time of year. Now is towards the end of the dry season and typically the water levels are extremely low on the rivers we fish. Usually the water is clear enough that we sight cast to huge peacocks. But it is the Amazon. It is the rainforest and sometimes Mother Nature can throw a twist. We’ll just have to hope that everything gets back to normal for next year. Did I say “next year”? Yes I did. Amongst my rescheduling of this years trip, I went ahead and booked next year’s trip. The dates for 2012 are February 11-18 and I already signed up two. So if you’re ready to enjoy this incredible fishery, contact me soon!

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!
