This will be one of the shortest blogs ever as I’m a little pressed for time. I floated the South Fork today. It’s possible this was the last time this year but hopefully I’ll get out in December. As usual the fish were all over the streamers. Here are a few pics from the day.

The reason for the short blog is that I’m leading a group to the Amazon starting Thursday. I haven’t packed a thing. We are faced with high water again but this time not quite as bad as when we rescheduled in March and we’re going to deal with it. That means organizing some specialty sinking lines and carefully chosen deep riding flies. And a variety of odd flies so I can take advantage of some of the smaller less sought after species that prowl around. I might even set us up for some catfishing. The Amazon has some of the largest most interesting catfish on the planet!

Even better, many of you reacted to my post about putting some “Currier” under the Christmas tree. I’ve been busy as heck drawing up Cliff Fly Boxes and filling mug and t-shirt orders. If I got your order it’s on the way. In that post I forgot to mention I also stock the new “Connect” movie by Confluence Films as well as Mikey Weirs “Soulfish 2” – both superb DVD’s at $29.95. I’ll be shipping goods again on December 13th – plenty of time for Christmas.

It’s impossible for me to report while in the Amazon. I hope to give a quick update from Manaus, Brazil on Saturday morning just before we fly into camp. I’ll write up my blogs every night after fishing but realistically they won’t start posting until around December 10th. They should be worth waiting for!

    Were you in another film like the current Connect film?

    Yes, Soulfish 2 came out in July. In there I helped with a segment in Mongolia and led a trip to Egypt for Nile Perch for the movies final segment.

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!
