Too Bad Christmas Only Comes Once A Year

by | Dec 26, 2018 | Uncategorized | 6 comments


After an absolutely insane fishing travel schedule came to an end on December 16th I had my work cut out for me.  I had 21 Sharpie art orders to do before Christmas on a variety of things from Cliff Fly Boxes to Yeti bags.  I also did two watercolor paintings in time for Christmas.  Now that everyone has their gifts I thought you might enjoy a glance at a few of the pieces that ended up under the tree.


Snake River Cutthroat on a Cliff Bugger Beast.


Sheepshead sketched out and ready to paint.


First few coats of paint are on.


Sheepshead artwork complete!


The Yeti travel bag collection – dogtooth tuna, yellowfin tuna and a blue marlin.

Be sure to keep track of my upcoming speaking travels around the US this winter. Feel free to bring your fly box or bag!

    Great work Jeff!! Got plans for you at the Denver show… love the sheephead, was finally able to catch 2 of those in New Orleans a couple of weeks ago.. didn’t do near as well on redfish as you did but that’s fishing..

  4. Jeff

    Are you bringing a box or pack for me to draw on? What are the “plans” so I can be ready to rock! And congrats on catching two of those rascals. They don’t come easy on the fly.

    I was going to challenge you and see if I could have you draw a Picasso Trigger on a beast Jr… and a Napoleon Wrasse on a Beast. The Golden Dorado you did for Kevin on the beast was fantastic…want one of those eating a Andino Deceiver if possible.. I can bring boxes or get them from you..either way.

    Lance, let’s go for it. I think they might be time consuming so let me do them here at home the next few days. If you have bran new boxes you can bring them and trade me out. Otherwise no big deal. I have plenty and you can buy them from me.

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!
