Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo

by | Jan 17, 2012 | Uncategorized | 4 comments

Two fly fishing shows have already come and gone. This past weekend I was a speaker for the Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo held in Boise. I’ve given presentations in Boise many times over the years but this was the first time working the show. All I can say is that the show was superbly run by Erik Moncada and the rest of the many Boise Valley Fly Fishing Coordinators.
 
As always I was busy with presentations from PowerPoint to casting demos as well as promoting my artwork, books and the latest DVD’s. Between talks I based myself out of the Anglers Fly Shop of Boise. The owners John and Maja ordered my books and Simms T-shirts with my latest artwork on them and I helped them sell a bunch. When not selling I doctored up some Cliff Fly Boxes for people and visited with them about all aspects of fly fishing. It was really fun weekend.
 
I could use some rest today but instead I find myself unpacking and repacking. I head for New Hampshire tomorrow for a quick visit to the folks then to Massachusetts for the Marlborough Fly Fishing Show. If you’re in the area be sure and stop by the show to say hi. Even better, catch one of my presentations. On Saturday at 3:30 I’ll be doing my PowerPoint presentation “Four Seasons of the Yellowstone Trout Bum” and on Sunday at 11:30 I’ll be presenting “Improve Your Fishing Photography”.
 
That’s about it for now. Busy busy this winter – Good stuff!

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!
