The Fishing Whirlwind Continues

Granny-CurrierI walked in the door at 1:45 AM this morning.  Yesterday I had the late flight from Jackson Hole that left at 1:30 PM.  I arrived in Duluth at 11:37 PM.  After collecting my luggage, it was a deer dodging drive for two hours to Hayward.  It sounds horrible I’m sure, but after years of constant travel, I like the late drives for home over the 4 AM drives to the airport.


Though tired from my weeklong western One Fly adventure, I wanted a laid back day on the water for a homecoming.  No hardcore wading, fishing or casting.  I simply like to kick back and be surrounded by nature and fish.  And I do it with Granny.  Granny and I took the blue bathtub to a nearby flowage and rowed and putted around with the 3.3 Mercury.  We sipped a couple beers and ate a nice lunch.  We did far more watching the world than fishing.

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!
