The 2013 Jackson Hole One Fly Kicks Off

by | Sep 5, 2013 | Uncategorized

blog-Sept-5-2013-1-Jackson-Hole-One-Fly-2013Jackson Hole One Fly officially began tonight with the annual cocktail party.  I’ve been anxiously waiting for tonight because once again I’ll be fishing on Gary Eckman’s Good Times Team and the cocktail party is where we are given our stretches and guides.  I’m happy to say my stretches are good as are my guides.  Both guides are good friends, Ed Emory and Travis Taylor.


In each boat there are two anglers so I have a member from another team that I fish directly against.  My opponents for each day are also friends.  On Saturday I fish against Eric Dobkin who I met in Bolivia last month (small world) and Sunday I fish against my long time pal, Paul Bruun.  No matter what happens this should be a very fun weekend.


I dabbled on the Snake River today with Gary.  We floated the less than productive South Park to Pritchard stretch south of Jackson.  Normally I draw this difficult stretch in the tourney so I thought it was a good idea to check it out.  We caught a lot of small fish but only one that would have measured as a high scoring fish in the One Fly.  I found out tonight I did not draw this stretch.  My stretches are Saturday the Lower South Fork Canyon and on Sunday I’m Pacific Creek to Deadman’s on the Snake.


Fishing starts Saturday so tomorrow it’s chose a fly and check all those knots.  I’ll hope to update Saturday night but if not expect the full Jackson Hole One Fly story here on Monday afternoon.

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!
