Things to do before Fly Fishing in Bolivia

blog-July-21-2013-Jeff-Currier-Muskellunge-artI thought I’d get out fishing near home this weekend but instead my next cast will be for golden dorado in Bolivia.  I’ll be leaving on Wednesday and should get my first cast there on Friday afternoon.  It’s all dependent on the never predictable jungle weather.


In the meantime I’ve been busier than ever.  Mostly I’ve been organizing my winter 2013-2014 travel schedule.  I have a speaking tour to southern California in late October and then I’ll be immediately to Africa to host my Tanzania tigerfish trip most of November.  To start 2014 I’ll be entertaining at the famous Fly Fishing Shows and speaking at several fly fishing clubs in between.  If your club needs an event speaker for 2014 now is the time to contact me.  See all my presentation offerings at my new website.


Speaking of my new website, I’ve been working on it constantly.  It launched June 1 and new things are being added daily.  Browse around and check out my most recent Cliff Fly Box art, view a sample of a PowerPoint Presentation and get ready to view my species list.  I’m gradually listing all the species I’ve taken on the fly.  Once that’s done I’ll be adding info about each fish, my personal experience with them and last but not least, how to catch them.


I  painted the muskellunge this weekend and he’s now available on my coffee mugs and the rest of the products at my growing fish products store.


A few more things to get done then this blog will be live from Bolivia!

    As a fellow multi-species angler I can’t wait to see the species list.

    Just about done with the freshwater fish. I’m sure I missed a few but I’ll remember them with time and I’ll stumble across a photo here and there. I should be posting them as soon as I get back from Bolivia. The salt will be the tough one. Lots of strange groupers and snappers to look over for starters. Thanks for keeping up with the blog.

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!
