The End of an Epic Journey to Africa

blog-Nov-16-2013-1I made it from my tent in Tanzania to my door in Victor, Idaho in exactly 50 hours.  That may seem long to some but to me it’s incredible and should remind us all what a magnificent time this is to live.  To be able to catch tigerfish on Friday and Snake River Cutthroats on Monday – man!

blog-Nov-16-2013-2-Jeff-Currier-fish-artworkIn conclusion of this trip I’d like to make a special thanks to the guides and staff at Tourette’s Tigerfish Camp in Tanzania.  They showed my clients and I nothing but a superb time on and off the water.  Also a special thanks to Yellow Dog for helping me set up and host this trip.  YD’s attention to detail on everything from booking airfares to preparing paperwork for the trip made my life much easier.

Here are a few more pics from the trip!

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!
