The “Super Grand Slam”

fish-artThe “Super Grand Slam” painting is done for my friend Mike Lodge.  It’s a tricky process putting four fish on one piece of watercolor paper.  They must be aligned perfect and there’s thought put into the order and size of each fish in the painting.  Then there’s the crucial care that needs to be taken when you’re working the last fish.  What if after all the work on the first three you screw up on the last?  That would stink!  Luckily there were no problems and the end result – I think this is a winner.


Now its time to pack my old 91 Explorer.  Granny and I are going to fight through the snow and head south.  Today will be a grueling drive.  It’s been snowing here since Thursday with not much relief in sight.  In fact, this storm is worse to the south of us then here.  But we will take it easy and tonight will be our first camping night in the Explorer of the year.  And a cold one I might add!


Victor-IdahoThe blog should be good as the next ten days unfold.  I’ll post as I can.  I’ll cover our drive south and then hopefully some excellent fly fishing for carp once we get to the Phoenix, Arizona area.  While waiting for the blog be sure to check in on my Instagram page where I can easily post a few pics as we go.  In fact, you can also see the entire painting steps I took to create the “Super Grand Slam” painting that I posted the last few days.


trout-bumLast but not least, “Currier” goods are always available.  If you want to commission a painting, order a custom Cliff Box or need that “Gift for the Angler that has Everything”, its all here on the website.  I should also mention my Zoom Presentations, I have a bunch so if your club needs a speaker, simply shoot me a message at Contact Jeff.

    Beautiful painting.

    I lived in Florida for 34 years – caught tarpon, snook and permit but was never lucky enough to tangle with a bonefish.

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!
