Traveling and Fishing Days are Back

flyfishingAhh yea, I’m slowly getting back to my old ways of before the pandemic. I’m bouncing around the country and world again.  It feels good to be back in such action.  On Wednesday night/Thursday morning Granny and I traveled from Hayward, WI to Wolfeboro, NH because this weekend is Mom’s 80th birthday.  This afternoon I snuck out for a couple hours with my sister and fished some boat ramps and docks on Mirror Lake and Lake Winnipesaukee.

That’s all for now.  Tomorrow is Mom’s actual birthday and we have big plans ranging from riding the Mt. Washington to dinner at O’s.  But we’ll be back on the water soon!

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!
