Return to the Fly Fishing Shows

Currier-flyfishingGranny and I just finished up our first adventure in the new van.  From Phoenix to Wolfeboro, NH ended up taking 16 days.  It was a casual trip with very few drives on freeways.  We drove a total of 4400 miles.


flyfishingWe only got one more day of fishing since the last post and we were skunked trying to track down some big crappie.  We were fishing from docks and shoreline.  Our neighbors at a State Park Campsite had a boat and slayed the crappies on the far side.  The new van has a trailer hitch so perhaps our boat will join us next year.


Tootsies-NashvilleAfter Texas and Louisiana we drove the Natchez Trace Parkway through MS and AL and on up to Nashville, TN.  There we stayed with our friends Norm and Kathy Thomas.  The are long time friends.  Norm and I fish Flat Creek together every summer.  They treated us to a great night in Nashville.


Flyfishing-ShowAfter Nashville it was a grunt for NH.  We dodged storms that included far more snowy roads than you want to meet in your new vehicle.  Luckily the van handled well and despite it getting covered in salt and sand from the roads, we made it to Moms in Wolfeboro.  We are trying to come up with a name for this bad boy.  Any ideas?


Currier-Fish-artWe staged at Moms the last few days and we are getting ready for the Edison, NJ Fly Fishing Show.  I must say I’m stoked after having most of my 2021 show season cancelled.  While Granny is packing up my famous coffee mugs, beer steins, decals and sun shirts with my fish on them, I’ve been drawing up a few Cliff Fly Boxes.  All these items will be available at our booth so come on by.  But I am low on stock.  With my Online store rocking it, my personal stock for the shows is low.  If you want me to hold one for you Contact Me.

In addition to my art, I’ve been reviewing my presentations.  I’ll deliver six over the course of the three day show.

Here’s my schedule:

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!
