Team USA Fly Fishing Takes Home the Bronze

by | Jun 10, 2017 | Uncategorized | 3 comments

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”!

    Thanks Jack! I’m really proud of this feat.

    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.

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!
