blog-Feb-18-2015-1-Mt-ShastaThe old red Explorer was limping badly when we started this West Coast speaking tour (Victor – Seattle – Portland – Tracy, CA – Pleasanton, CA – Fresno, CA – Victor). Every mile we put behind us is a relief.  It’s the transmission that’s going.  On the highway the engine screams at 4000 RPM’s and it takes a couple shifts to move forward at traffic lights.


Other than the concern for breaking down with all my show stuff it’s been a great drive.  Above is Mt Shasta as we entered northern California yesterday after a visit up in Portland, Oregon.


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATonight I’ll be presenting “Fly Fishing through Midlife Heaven” for Tracy Fly Fishers.  I’ve added in some arapaima stuff from Guyana per their request.  Then tomorrow we striper fish with Ben Byng and Steve Potter on the California Delta.


Starting Friday it’s the Pleasanton Fly Fishing Show.  Here’s my speaking schedule for the weekend:



12:30 – Release Room – “Fly Fishing for Carp”

2:15 – “Casting in the Wind and the Double Haul”


12:15 – “Fly Casting 101”

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!
