Team USA Fly Fishing Takes Home the Bronze

It was a magnificent day in Covilha, Portugal.  Team USA Masters Fly Fishing Team takes home the bronze medal.  We’ll be flying all the way home tomorrow with the medals proudly around our necks.

Raising the flag with the National Anthem playing for us – unreal feeling.

My highlight was to win a World Championship Medal for Joe Humphreys.  His first.

The trophy!

It’s going to be a nice flight home with this around my neck.

Next report will be from the Henry’s Fork.

My Henry’s Fork Marathon will be Tuesday June 20th.  Everyone is invited.  Meet at the Last Chance Parking lot at 7 AM.  Hope to see you there!

    Congratulations to the Team US and especially to you Jeff. You are a totally devoted person to the sport of fly fishing and keep anyone vaguely hooked on the sport motivated to get off their duff, no matter what their age or excuse and “get their fly wet”!

    Hi Jeff and Jack,
    could not have said it better myself …
    Congratulations to the excellent result for you Jeff and your team USA Masters Fly Fishing Team in the Fly Fishing World Championships in Portugal. Congrats to winning the Bronze medal! Would also have loved to see Joe Humphries receive his bronze medal! If I remember correctly he was also in the US team 1991 when we competed in NZ. Well earned – one ultimate recognition for his long fly fishing era. If you like, I would appreciate if my greetings could reach Jay too, as to all your team members 😊! All the best.
    Harry Salmgren former team Captain and competitor in the WFFC between 1989-2000. Hope to see you on the water some time.
