The Roosterfish Pimp

by | May 25, 2011 | Uncategorized | 3 comments

Yesterday at this time Grant, Sammy and I were feeling pretty confident about catching some major roosterfish this week. And I fed the feeling by hooking up with the first roosterfish I saw this morning. I lost him on a jump but he was like the ones we caught yesterday. But, other than me landing a peanut of a roosterfish and Sammy a houndfish, that was it. We didn’t see a darn thing after that all day.It was scorching hot. At first the wind cranked but then died to nothing. It was so hot you can’t imagine. We walked about four miles of beach just scanning for a roosterfish but saw none.
It was a hard day.  Sammy went nuts and became the roosterfish pimp! What a shirt and hat!We’ll be back at it first thing tomorrow. Perhaps today was a day off for big roosters and tomorrow they will be around. I sure hope so because today was pure punishment.

    Nice shirt! 🙂

    I guess you’re fishing far to the south, but do you know how far north into the Sea of Cortez one can find them? Do they get as far north as San Felipe? Pat

    I know they make it as far as Santa Rosalia. They could go further norht. It just depends on the year. They like the warmer water and thats dpendant on wind and current.

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!
