The Great American Fly Fishing Expo of Indianapolis

by | Feb 18, 2016 | Uncategorized

The last blog was short then I didn’t follow up with the weekend report on Monday.  That’s because I have been fighting the show plague of 2016.  It started the last day during that horrible weather in Florida twelve days ago and dang near killed me traveling to Seattle last week.  I think it’s the flu.  By miracle I made it through the Lynwood WA Fly Fishing Show then traveled down to Portland, OR.  Tuesday night I spoke to the Flyfishers’ Club of Oregon presenting “Fly Fishing Through Midlife Heaven”.  Then I rested all yesterday at my good friend Mike LaSota’s house on a hillside in Portland.


I’m no million-dollar man today but I’m upright and on the way to my biggest speaking weekend of the tour.  I’ll be at the Great American Fly Fishing Expo in Indianapolis Friday – Sunday.  If you live anywhere close, I highly recommend you make it over for at least a day.  There’s a lot of great speakers and presentations to attend.  I personally will be delivering nine talks over the three days.  Here’s my line up:



2:00 – “Fly Casting 101”

4:00 – “Fly Fishing Through Midlife Heaven”


12:00 – “Improve Your Fishing Photography”

2:30 – “Fly Casting in the Wind and the Double Haul”

4:00 – “Four Seasons of the Yellowstone Trout Bum”

5:00 – “Fly Casting 101”


11:00 – “Fly Fishing Through Midlife Heaven”

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!
