Return to the World Championships of Flyfishing

blog-June-6-2016-1-victor-idahoThere’s no tougher time to leave home for me than June. While some anglers can’t wait for July for the rivers to clear I like now because it’s green and everywhere you look is alive! It’s also the most enjoyable time in my yard with my trees in full bloom and prime time on the dry fly waters of the Henry’s Fork. This includes my favorite day of the year, opening day of the famed Railroad Ranch.

Jay was my teammate when I fished for Team USA in the Fips – Mouche World Flyfishing Championships back in the day. Jay was the first guy to high five me after receiving my bronze medal in Spain. In the call Jay asked me to return to competition as a member of Team USA for the World Masters Fly Fishing Championships held in Galway, Ireland.

Tomorrow at this time I’ll be headed for Ireland. More to come in my day by day accounts. Wish us luck!

My Henry’s Fork Marathon will meet in the Last Chance parking lot at 7 am on June 21st.

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!
