The World Fly Fishing Masters Championships

by | Apr 23, 2018 | world fly fishing championships

To say the last 30 hours have been a blur is an understatement.  Hour one was leaving from Omaha, Nebraska and now I’m here in Asturias Spain with Team USA Masters to compete in the World Fly Fishing Masters Championships.  I arrived here around 3:30 PM (Spain time) and changed directly into my Team USA jacket then went to the opening ceremonies and dinner.  The things we can do in these times.


I’ll explain more about the great event over the next few days.  It’s a ton of fun and tonight I reunited with many of my European friends.  Many of them are the finest fly fishers on the planet.  This is my friend Jean Meya of France.  Jean speaks barely a word of English and I hardly a word of French yet as fly fishers we easily connect. And yes, I am extremely jet-lagged in this photo.


I’ll be up at 5:30 for a full day of practice then into the tourney starting Wednesday.  Keep right on a movin. . . .

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!
