Tropical Storm Continues My Marlin on Fly Curse

by | Sep 20, 2016 | Uncategorized

On a scale of 1-10 (10 being best) the way I felt at bedtime last night was about a 2.5.  When we got up at 4 AM to get back on the Waterman to try and catch a marlin on the fly this morning, I’d jumped to a 4 and I was going.  But at 4:15 AM Capt. Mike Standing called and canceled the trip due to Tropical Storm Julia.  Back to bed we went.  Was it the banana boat?


My nickname “Monsoon Currier” reared its ugly head and my marlin on a fly curse goes on.  I laugh about both at this point in my life but it is amazing.  Me and the Mossy Creek Fly Fishing Trow brothers are resting today but tomorrow we’ll float down the James River in search of the biggest smallmouth bass of my life and perhaps my first longnose gar on the fly.


Bad weather and bad luck will never win over me in my fly fishing travels!

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!
