The Granny Arrives in Baja

fish-mexicoIt was fantastic fun down here in Baja with Sammy last week.  This week its Granny’s turn.  She arrived yesterday afternoon and I was ready to take off camping and fishing with her directly from the airport.  But she asked that we take it easy her first 24 hours.  Instead of camping last night we stayed at Sammy’s condo and followed it with an extremely leisurely morning.

Baja-MexicoWe didn’t arrive to the east coast of Baja until around 3 PM.  The wind was hellacious.  Roosterfishing from the beach requires being able to spot them swimming rather than blind casting.  With the big waves and the fact that after 3 the sunlight leaves you fast we didn’t look too hard.  Instead we headed to find a nice campsite well before sunset.


roosterfish-bajaI love camping and in Baja its extra special.  You need to take a few precautions to avoid scorpions and rattlesnakes but with a little commonsense there isn’t a problem.  We camped in a cozy area that we’ve spent time at before.

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!
