And the Show Season Winds Down

blog-Feb-26-2013-1-flyfishing-showsThat was an intense two months!  I left for the Denver Fly Fishing Show on January 2nd and didn’t look back.  Sure I slipped home a few times, but even when I had a week off I flew to Northern Wisconsin and ice fished.  2014 has been non stop.


The Pleasanton Fly Fishing Show was exceptional.  The show kept me busy with presentations and between talks I decorated Cliff fly Boxes and chatted it up with the Californians, most of which I’ve known for many years.  Folks love the new products especially the frosted beer mugs.  Our store website is finally working well and orders are off the hook after each show.  The weekend was wonderful and thanks to everyone that paid a visit.


Monday night I spoke about “Saltwater Fly Fishing” to Fresno Fly Fishers for Conservation.  The show went great, then yesterday Granny and I drove straight back to Idaho – a little over 15 hours – 880 miles.  We were absolutely beaten down the last few days even before the drive and we slept until almost 9 today (I rarely sleep past 6 AM).


blog-Feb-26-2014-2-Victor-IdahoWe spent the day shoveling and doing errands.  The day in Victor, Idaho brought on true spring fever with no wind, rich blue sky and a temperature that felt like 50º.  I’m not sure what the temp was but its fantastic to be home – so nice we celebrated watching the sunset from the snowy driveway.


blog-Feb-26-2014-3-driving-in-NevadaNext on the agenda is catch up, taxes and relax.  The next gig is Wednesday night, March 5, at the Upper Bear River Trout Unlimited Chapter in Evanston, Wyoming.  My presentation will be “Fly Fishing Through Midlife Heaven”.

    Now get your monsoon butt to the Midwest for a different kind of ice fishing… Early season trout opens Saturday.

    I’d love to more than anything Howie. I’m just running hard right now and the schedule is full. This spring I don’t even have a weekend! Its good though and eventually I’ll be able to spread out my time better.

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!
