The Christmas Rush

by | Dec 17, 2012 | Uncategorized | 4 comments

Sorry for the lack of blogging.  You’ve not missed any fishing adventures.  When you’re an artist, Christmas is the busiest time of the year and I’ve been grinding away.  Twice I nearly snuck to the water but last minute commission orders continue to come in.  Check out my first ever painting of a Westslope Cutthroat.
I also spoke in Bozeman, Montana last Wednesday night.  My PowerPoint presentation was “Improve Your Fishing Photography”.  Lucky for me and the Madison – Gallatin Chapter of Trout Unlimited, I left Victor, Idaho at 9 AM for what is generally a four hour drive.  Snow and wind turned the normally enjoyable drive in to a six hour white knuckler.  Even downtown Bozeman was a snowy skating rink.  They don’t call me “Monsoon Currier” for nothing.  The early start got me there in plenty of time and I had a great night and a surprisingly large crowd despite the weather.  Then Thursday I drove a whopping 35 MPH all the way from Bozeman to home – another 6 hour plus drive thanks to hard packed ice.
Last but not least, I’m updating all my shows for my speaking circuit.  I’ll start the 2013 season at the Denver Fly Fishing Show and go non stop till mid March.  Sure, that includes hosting a week in the Amazon in February, but overall I’ll be doing more than 40 presentations nationwide the next three months.
Hope to see you soon!

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!
