The Water I Grew up On

blog-June-17-2014-1-flyfishing-lake-winnepesaukeeGranny and I flew across country yesterday.  We’re in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary.  My parent’s official day is on Friday but Granny and I thought we’d make a nice vacation out of it with some serious warmwater fly fishing on my old stomping grounds, Lake Winnipesaukee.


blog-June-17-2014-2-granny-currier-flyfishing-for-bassIndeed I love my trout fishing in Idaho.  Days like Sunday on the Henry’s Fork for the Harriman Ranch Opener are events I can’t live without.  But as I get older I find myself thinking about where it all began.  For me it was popping for bass, smaller sunfish, chain pickerel and anything else that would take my concoctions.  This is why I’m so dang excited to be here.


blog-June-17-2014-3-flyfishing-for-largemouth-bassWe had errands to do this morning including getting our New Hampshire fishing licenses so we didn’t get an early start.  But Granny and I made a mid day assault on the fish near our family camp then went out tonight to Back Bay.  All I can say is it didn’t take long for Granny to realize why I love this place and these fish so much.  She poppered up a lot of fish including this dandy of a largemouth bass on my Winston 5-weight and my old Ross Gunnison.


Expect more warmwater fly fishing reports throughout the week!

    Hey Jeff –
    Welcome back to the Northeast! Bass on the fly in shorts and tee shirt is tough to beat. Have a good one!

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!
