The Midwest Fly Fishing Show

by | Mar 7, 2013 | Uncategorized | 5 comments

A solid week at home got me some rest.  I was exhausted from two months of constant travel.  Not only rest, but the homestretch included some great back county skiing, college basketball and spring training baseball.  The only thing it didn’t include was fishing, but I’ll get a day of steelheading on the Pere Marquette in Michigan on Monday.  That’s because it’s off to the Midwest Fly Fishing Expo in Michigan early tomorrow morning. 

I have a busy schedule at the show.  Rather than list all my topics I’ll direct you to the Show Website.  I’ll be demonstrating casting and talking “Warmwater Fly Fishing”, “Saltwater Fly Fishing” and “Fishing Photography”.  If you’re anywhere nearby, this show would be a wise place to spend the weekend.  Other speakers include Bob Clouser, Ed Engle, A.K Best and Michael Mauri.

Last, I wanted to show off some artwork that I did during the Pleasanton Fly Fishing Show.  I drew this brown trout on a Yeti Cooler for Ken Cochrane.  It is completely done with sharpie pens.

Time to finish packing.

    Bummer! F
    From reading your post, I thought we were actually going to go fishing at some time. Maybe in the near future when things slow down for you.

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!
