Return to Kentucky for Keeneland and Fishing

blog-April-14-2016-1-granny-currier-at-keenelandGranny and I flew into Cincinnati last night then headed down to Lexington, Kentucky to visit our friends John and Betty Reesor.  We’ll be here through Monday and the trip will include two days at Keeneland for some of the finest horse racing you could dream of watching.  And yes of course, there will be some fishing.


blog-April-14-2016-2-keeneland-horseracingToday our only focus was on the racing.  We experienced Keeneland three years ago thanks to John and Betty and been aching to return ever since.  The weather was no less than spectacular.  Kentucky is blooming in every direction and you couldn’t ask for a better day.  We drank beer and sipped wine from early afternoon till evening.  Although we by no means crushed it in our bets, we won a few and didn’t lose too much money.


blog-April-14-2016-3-Keeneland-KentuckyThe final race ended at around 5 PM then John and Betty took us to Dudley’s in downtown Lexington.  I enjoyed a few of Lexington’s home brews with a scrumptious halibut plate while Granny scarfed down some scallops.  Stay tuned for tomorrow – we’re going musky fishing to the well-known Cave Run Lake.

    Enjoy your stay! Keeneland is a beautiful track. I hope you tried the burgoo and the keeneland breeze.

    Cave run holds a lot of memories for me as well as I went to Morehead State nearby for undergrad. I hope you catch a massive Muskie!

    Glad to see you in the Commonwealth!

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!
