Trout on the Flats!

I seem to be back on track after the week hiatus from fishing.  It had stuff to catch up on and it was super dang hot.  But things have changed.  Though midday temps are still high, the evening temperatures have dropped and its time to light a campfire (where legal) and get ready for big trout.


Jeff-Currier-flyfishingI can’t get into too much detail on this blog because I need to meet a deadline for a permit article for Fly Fishers International’s fall magazine, but here’s a rundown:


Friend Tim Brune and I headed to American Falls Reservoir camping and to prowl for some carp and smallmouth bass.  While we stuck a few carp, we also bumped into some very nice trout.  Trout that were gluttons for carp crayfish patterns and small Clousers.  Most was sight fishing which is not something you get to do for trout on lakes every day!

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!
