The End of a Great Trip with Old Pals

by | Jul 20, 2021 | fly fishing for carp

Snake-RiverTom Bie left for home after fishing last night.  Boots and I had a beer at camp then called it a day.  It as a long one and good one with a few nice fish.  This morning we got up early again and the two of us fished one of the slower sections of the lower Snake.  The target – more carp on the fly.


It was hot.  Yesterday we had clouds and a storm but today was a scorcher.  Our day got cut short too because Boots got a call he needed to be home.  I was good with it.  That’s because Boots couldn’t fish much because of an elbow issue and also, I nailed this handsome mirror carp early in the day.  We headed for home around noon.


Currier-mirror-carpThe lower Snake has become an annual for Boots and I along with a new guest each year.  We missed the big rainbows of the past years but the carp and a few smallies more than made up for it.  It’s been a long run of fishing and speaking so far this summer.  Now I’m going to cherish a week at home and catch up on a heap of things.  I’ll be back on the water next Tuesday.

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!
