So Long to Wolfeboro

WolfeboroIt’s hard to believe Granny and I went three days here in Wolfeboro, NH without making a cast.  Believe me, I thought about fishing, but the weather went south since our last outing.  The temps dropped to the low 50°s and there’s been a bunch of cold rain.  Toss in a family boat ride around Lake Winnipesaukee and catching up on work projects, fishing simply didn’t happen.

So long Wolfeboro.  Tomorrow we point the Ruby Van for the Midwest.  Expect a stop on the carp flats of Lake Michigan in route for our new home in Wisconsin.

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!
