Fly Fishing Talk Brings Me to Oregon

I slipped into Portland, Oregon last night and am presently staying with my old friend Mike LaSota (Michigan Mike).  Mike’s last time on the blog was when we fished in Gabon in 2016.  What brought me to Portland was to give my presentation, “Streamer Tricks for More and Larger Trout” for the Flyfisher’s of Oregon Club.  But I never come to Oregon without fishing a few days with Mike after I work.


My talk went fantastic this evening and first thing tomorrow Mike and I are dragging his drift boat to the coast.  It’s our intention to catch some chinook salmon on the fly around the Pacific City area.  I’ve not ever fished there before nor have I caught a “true” native chinook salmon fresh from the ocean before.  Should be a blast!!

Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo 2017

This weekend I speak at my last Fly Fishing Show of the season.  Really?  Winter zipped by that fast?  Indeed it did and I’m ending with a bang with my first ever appearance at the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo in St. Paul, Minnesota March 17-19.


I’ve known of this show for many years and from what I understand if you live in range, you don’t want to miss it!  What’s special about speaking in MN is that this is my old stomping grounds from back in the 80’s.  Therefore, afterwards I’ll be chucking flies with my college buddies in Wisconsin’s Driftless Area.


Fellow speakers are friends George Daniel and Dave Whitlock and more.

Here’s my schedule for the weekend


For me this is my arrival day and although I won’t be giving any presentations I plan to be doing art at my booth the minute I get off the plane which means from around 3PM till 7PM show closing.


10:45 – “Casting in the Wind and the Double Haul”

12:00 – Hutton Arena – “Four Seasons of the Yellowstone Trout Bum”

2:30 – Room A – “Saltwater Fly Fishing – Bonefish to Billfish”


10:30 – “Casting in the Wind and the Double Haul”

11:45 – Hutton Arena – “Fly Fishing in Warmwater – Bass, Pike, Carp and More”

January Fly Fishing Shows in the Rearview

The shows come and go so fast it’s unreal.  The Somerset Fly Fishing Show is in the books and in fact, the entire work month of January.  For me it was four shows (Denver, Boise, Boston and New Jersey) and 22 seminars mixed on casting ponds and PowerPoint rooms.  As crazy as it sounds to some, I loved every minute of it.  I love my job and really enjoy teaching fly fishing and entertaining with my photos and stories.  Keep me in mind when your club or show needs a fly fishing speaker.


In addition to my teaching and entertaining I wore out a heap of Sharpies this month.  I drew on at least 30 fly boxes, computers and now a new thing, baseball caps.  Bring em on, I love to draw as much as I love to entertain.


Next on my agenda is a few more days in NH with the family then home for a week.  I’m especially looking forward to putting on my back-county skis and evenings at the Victor pubs.  Then it’s off to Manitowish Waters in Wisconsin for a few days of ice fishing before show-time again.


Keep the body moving. . . .

Back to the Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo

Been awhile since I spoke at Boise’s Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo but this year I’m back and I’m pumped!  In fact I’m out the door right now and on my way.  The drive will start tough due to the massive storm over the last few days but I believe once I get past Pocatello the drive should be smooth sailing.  Anything to get me away from shoveling!


This fantastic show is Friday and Saturday and I’ll be giving eight presentations.  Here’s my schedule.  I hope to see many of you there!


12:30 – “Fly Fishing in and around Jackson Hole”

2:30 – “Fly Casting 101”

4:30 – Tricks and Tactics for Fly Fishing the World’s Best Flats
