Update on Dad and Fishing

by | Sep 17, 2012 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

The blog has been a bit quiet but this will change now.  I simply needed to catch up on a pile of work after being away a month for Dads surgeryfollowed by immediately jumping right into the Jackson Hole One Fly.
Now my work is under control and I even relished in some of the basics that being home is all about.  Like drinking coffee on the back porch watching the birds hammer our sunflower seeds and ending the day with a nice front porch cocktail hour with Granny enjoying the orangey sunsets we’re having because of the forest fires.  I even kicked back, watched baseball all day and painted this steelhead.  It’s been good but I’m pleased to say Granny and I will be fishing a special place this week. 
As for Dad, things have not gone well of late.  You may remember that when I left New Hampshireon September 4 I was pleased that Dad was finally out of the hospital and settled into a rehab-nursing home close to Mom.  Things were going very well and he was truly improving.  Then on Saturday night during the One Fly he took a fall from his wheel chair.  Everything seemed ok.  But on Wednesday night he ended up back in the hospital due to complications and now a bladder infection.  This is a tough road.

    Jeff, I cant even imagine what it would be like dealing with the condition of your father. I hope everything turns out ok, especially because you have a number of people looking forward to you coming to Boise in January. Best, Erik

    Thanks Erik. We Currier’s are fighters. I think he’ll come to it’s just taking much longer than the doctors thought.

    Don’t you worry, I’ll see you guys in Boise rain or shine. I look forward to it. You know how much I love to talk fishing and teach casting!

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!
