Show Season Moves On Rapidly

Landon-MayerHoly cow!  Its March 1 already and Sunday we finished up the big Pleasanton Fly Fishing Show.  This was my last BIG gig of the winter, although I have several day events including tonight in Ridgecrest, CA and Saturday in Redmond, OR.


The show season was a bit of a roller coaster.  It started in January with the postponing of the Marlboro, MA Fly Fishing Show (rescheduled for April but I won’t make it).  Then at the Edison, NJ Show we got crushed by a nor’easter.  NJ declared a “State of Emergency” and we had about 50 people show up on Saturday.  Fortunately, Denver was amazing and this weekend in CA was decent.


Gary-BorgerNot only was the Pleasanton Show good but it was a really swell time. Fellow speakers/pals Phil Rowley, Landon Mayer and Gary Borger to name a few, we all had a blast.  We chowed some great sushi, tipped a couple beers and the highlight was a Saturday night jam session.  It truly was a hoot!


golden-trout-artAs already mentioned, tonight I speak in CA and will deliver “The Worlds Best Trout Fishing Destinations” to the Aguabonita Flyfishers.  Tomorrow Granny and I point the Ruby Van north to Oregon.  Saturday I’m doing a full day of presentations at the Fin and Fire Fly Shop in Redmond.  If this is your neck of the woods – please come on down and say hi.  The event is free and open to the public.


That’s all for now.  Once we get to OR expect some fishing blogs.  We’ll be there until about March 20 and intend to do a ton of fishing.  Perhaps a steelhead for Granny?  More nice Columbia River smallies like last year for me? Who knows?  What I do know is we’ll be with great friends and it should be a March to remember!

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!
