Successful Weekend Up North

blog-March-6-2016-1-flyfishing-albertaThe tour continues to blaze by.  Thursday nights gig in Great Falls, Montana with Missouri River Flyfishers went off well and the weekend in Lethbridge, Canada for “The Art of Fly Fishing Festival” was a huge success with their largest attendance ever.  I had a great time entertaining but one of the highlights had to be my first ever “Teach Kids” how to draw fish class.  The fish I had them draw was the ever so colorful peacock bass.


blog-March-6-2016-2-teaching-flyfishingFor the next four days here at home it’s a major grind with errands, taxes and packing to speak at the Midwest Fly Fishing Expo in Warren, Michigan next weekend.  This will be another great show and you can see my schedule on their website.  Please make the trip for the weekend if you live anywhere near.  I spoke at this one three years ago and the show and seminars are fantastic.  One of my favorite friends, Joe Humphreys will also be speaking.

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!
