The Musky Coundown

by | Oct 1, 2011 | Uncategorized

September was a great month as usual. The fishing was outstanding and plentiful and the weather was the best ever. Yesterday, our final day of the month reached 83º! By the looks, the first few days of October will continue to be gorgeous, but then on Wednesday the Equinox storm arrives and we just may have a little snow by the weekend.

Today Granny and my folks who are visiting are headed to Yellowstone for the weekend. I packed my 4-weight RX Ross and a box of mahogany duns. While most anglers are running to the Madison River to intercept migrating browns dad and I will spend a few hours on the Yellowstone River, Slough Creek and tomorrow we’ll take a stroll through the Gibbon Meadows.

On the books for October is some great fishing around home, a few days chasing grass carp (white Amur) in Arizona and a week to northern Wisconsin for musky. I’m really excited about it all but especially the musky trip. Here’s a picture of some friends who are having some fantastic musky fishing as we speak. I can’t wait!

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!
