blog-July-1-2013-1I had no idea that the Henry’s Fork Marathon would be my last fishing day of June.  However, when the heat rolled in here Thursday and after looking at my list of “Artwork to be done” I turned on the TV and watched baseball while painting and drawing on Cliff Fly Boxes at home for five straight days.  I was extremely focused and got a lot done.  And the Cubs are red hot right now – Ha!


blog-July-1-2013-2-Atlantic-Salmon-ArtworkHarvey and I now offer an Atlantic salmon on my famous coffee mugs as well as steins, frosted glasses and everything else from our web store.  And a week from now you can expect a muskellunge.




My friend Coz was with me in the Amazon back in February and he caught a 13lb peacock.  He commissioned me to paint his fantastic fish.  I’ve actually been working on this occasionally for a few weeks.  I put the final touches on him Saturday.


blog-July-1-2013-4-Golden-Dorado-ArtworkI continue to have all the luck in the world as a traveler.  Two friends are TREATING me to Tsimane Lodge in Bolivia late this month.  The least I could do is decorate a couple Cliff Fly Boxes for them.


Tonight Granny and I are off to some secret water.  Stay tuned. . . .

    Great looking paintings Jeff, I have had peacock bass on the mind! I was looking into the peacock bass they had in Hawaii the other day… Sure its not the Amazon, but its a lot more affordable! 🙂 Nice Golden Dorado!

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!
