We Are Parents for More than a Week!

Their first trip – 2010

Tomorrow my brother’s two teenage daughters, Montana 14 and Sammy 16, fly out for a ten day visit.  If you’ve read this blog for years then you know them both (story from 2010).  Montana was on here ten days ago bluegill fishing with me in New Hampshire.  They have been on fishing trips with me since they were toddlers however all of those times the parents were near.  This is their first time away from home without the parents.


Learning the waters – 2012

We’ll be fishing and hiking and having a good time.  At least that’s my plan.  My brother and his wife, and my wife for that matter, my mom and my sister aren’t so sure I can handle two teenage girls for a week.  We’ll see.  I like the challenge.



Montana’s first nice smallie – 2015

For starters, Granny and I plan to ease them into Victor.  Then Thursday through Saturday, while Granny works, I’m taking the nieces backpacking in the Tetons.  There won’t be a rod packed for this first adventure of their trip but I’m certain there will be a good blog to come once we return to civilization.


Fishing with Sammy – 2017

Next week these lucky girls will learn to row my driftboat and if all goes well (it will) we’ll head for the mighty Nunya River for a 40 mile long overnight float.

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!
