Storm Triggered Carp on Blackfoot Reservoir

blog-July-3-2014-1-flyfishing-for-carpI headed back to Blackfoot Reservoir to get Skip Brittenham into a few more carp while he’s here on his 4th of July visit.  Fishing started slow but gradually they started to eat.  When the first clouds filled the sky we only had one landed.  Then rumbles of thunder came from the west followed by strong westerly gusts.  I saw some carp start rolling in the waves.  Thinking it was our last shot before the storm, I had Skip wade out and cast.  The first three casts in a row he caught a 10lb plus mirror carp!  We ended up landing seven!

    Skip told me he caught an 18 pounder, which as we have experienced before, may have beem a slight exaggeration.

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!
