Saving A Snapping Turtle

blog-June-9-2015-1-jeff-currier-saving-a-snapping-turtleJust when I thought I closed the books on fly fishing in New Hampshire 2015 along came one more event worth mentioning.  While driving down highway 28 on the way to Manchester Airport today this common snapping turtle was crossing.  It makes me sick that people run over a slow moving animal like a turtle but it happens all the time.


blog-June-9-2015-2-common-snapping-turtleWhen I saw this beauty I locked up the brakes and ran to prevent oncoming traffic from flattening him.  I hoisted him by his tail and kept clear of his snapping jaws for a picture.  Then I released him in the nearby river far from the road.


Go Cubs!

    You haven’t changed a bit. Great stories. Stop in iron river on your way back from michigan. Doors always open and the largemouth are going crazy.

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!
