Snowless Weekend Draws Big Crowd to MA Fly Fishing Show

by | Jan 23, 2017 | Uncategorized

Each of the last five years at the Marlboro Fly Fishing Show we dealt with a Saturday snowstorm which thinned crowds.  Who wants to drive on snowy roads in Massachusetts?  This year however, mother nature provided perfect weather – dry roads.  The fun event was packed with regular visitors and new.


Between my presentations, I took requests to draw on fly boxes and computers and enjoyed chatting with hundreds of folks.  Thank you to everyone who made a point to swing by and say hi.





Even more fun, I was surprised by the folks in the booth next to me.  Most years I donate a day to teach wounded war veterans for Jackson Hole Honoring our Veterans.  It’s just so happened that several of the guys I’ve worked with were there.


The show season is flying by.  Before I know it I’ll be in northern Wisconsin drilling ice holes.  This week however, I’m presently chilling in Wolfeboro before heading to the big one – the Somerset New Jersey Fly Fishing Show.

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!
