Sunrise on the Teton River

July 15

The nieces weren’t happy when I woke them at 5:30 am to head for sunrise on the Teton River near the house.  Indeed we were all very tired from the Tetons trek but I thought a nice morning on the river would heal the muscles.  They went but they wouldn’t get in the cold water.  That meant I got to fish while they gave me the evil eye through the tall grass.


It was all good though as the sun warmed things up.  I caught a heap of small brookies and one cutthroat.  16 year old Sammy seems to have given up fishing because she showed no interest.  Montana on the other hand finally took my Winston and was swinging my fly through the rises and picking up brook trout on each cast.  Here she is with her first brookie.


We made it a short day and got home by 11 am.  Montana offered to make breakfast and I took her up on it.  Pretty dang good I must say.  I recon these kids may have to stay with me an extra week!


Tomorrow we begin the journey down the might Nunya River.  The girls first ever float trip!

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!
