Teaching Fly Fishing to Wounded Warriors

blog-Sept-21-2014-wounded-warriorsFor years I donated art to Project Healing Waters and Wounded Warriors for their fundraising events.  I’m sure the pieces sold and helped but once the art left me I never knew for sure how much it contributed.  Then last year I got the opportunity to give a day teaching fly fishing to wounded warriors in Jackson Hole that were brought in by Honoring Our Veterans.  The hands on experience was extremely enjoyable and definitely rewarding for the veterans.


Today Honoring Our Veterans brought in another group of wounded warriors and I and several guides from around Jackson spent the day teaching them to fly fish.  There were twenty of them from various locations around the US.  Several were avid bait casters anxious to take their new skills home to catch their first bass on the fly.  We were also preparing them for two full days of guided fishing on the Snake later this week.  Good news – they are ready – and I had a fine day and have a handful of new friends!

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!
