The Short Days and Long Nights of December

fish-artThe blog has been quiet since I returned from Mexico way back just before Thanksgiving.  But that was the plan.  It was time to buckle down and promote my webstore for Christmas and prepare and deliver a bunch of Online Zoom PowerPoint Presentations.  While most of these talks are for private clubs (last night for Alaska TU), keep in mind that the ones I do for Fly Fishers International are open to the public.  Catch my next FFI at 8 PM EST on December 29th.


flyfishingGranny and I had a terrific Thanksgiving.  We had a driveway party with a few friends.  It was a gorgeous November day with temps all the way up to about 39°.  That’s nice for Victor, Idaho in November!  Here’s Granny enjoying brew in one of my Frosted Beer Steins with her favorite, the Apache Trout.


The weather was phenomenal right up until Friday.  We had bright sun and the temps broke 40° a few times.  Last weekend Granny and I had lunch on our deck – a first for December.


fly-box-artDuring the week while Granny is plugging away at her job in Jackson Hole, I’ve been busting out the art.  I’ve done a couple small paintings and a ton of Cliff Fly Boxes.  The most interesting one is this Giant African Threadfin chasing a fly.  Its an unusual request and most people don’t know the fish.  A few years back I traveled all the way to Gabon just to catch one.  They are about as cool and incredible a fish I’ve ever seen!


There’s still time to order from my store or contact me to get my custom art on a Cliff Fly Box.  But don’t wait too long!


Also check out my decals from Pescador on the Fly.  The perfect stocking stuffers!  All the trout and bonefish, permit and tarpon both in 5” size and 10”.

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!
