The Day After “The Fish of a Lifetime”

Now that I have my Indo-Pacific permit I can relax and fish for bonefish.  Every single one I see if I want.  I’ve been waiting for this.  Tim, Ryan and Gerhard and I fished together.  But funny thing, the bonefish were hard to find for me.  We contended with storms but honestly, I can’t blame the weather.


In fact, it was sort of odd.  When we stopped on our first flat Tim and Ryan hopped from the boat and went right while Gerhard and I went left.  We saw one bonefish.  Tim and Ryan caught a bunch and cast to permit.


Floral Wrasse

Sweetlips Emperor

The only two fish I caught today was the colorful floral wrasse and a sweetlips emperor fish.  Fly fishing is funny sometimes.  It was a weird day but my face still has a big smile on it!

There were some nice fish caught by the rest of the group.  My favorite was by my Australian friend, Terry Graham.  Terry was on my 2015 hosted trip to Farquhar in the Seychelles.  We had a great time species bashing one day which is why he probably caught the less common brassy trevally today, better known as the green dot.  And this is a big one for this species!

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!
