Wet Wading with Moose

by | Oct 26, 2013 | Uncategorized

blog-Oct-26-2013-1-fly-fishing-in-IdahoI’ve been packing for three weeks of hosting Yellow Dog clients in Africa for tigerfish the last couple days.  I leave on Thursday and not back until November 18th.  I not only need to be prepared for my own fishing but when hosting you need a lot of extra stuff so that if a guest is short on something or unprepared I can come to the rescue.  You really need to be on your game.  On top of all this planning, I will be without phone or email for almost three weeks.  I have so much crap to do!


blog-Oct-26-2013-2-mooseThat being said, it’s been 60º every day for a week.  So today I couldn’t take working inside and instead floated my old webmaster, Ken Holder and his lady Nati down the Sveum.  You can almost always expect a blanket blue-winged olive hatch this time of year, however, today it was so nice there were only a few on the water.  We caught some fish but by far the “moosing” was the best!  And can you believe I wet waded comfortably today?  True!


blog-Oct-26-2013-3-Confluence-films-WaypointsDon’t forget November 8th is the world premier of Confluence Films latest, “Waypoints”My spring mahseer fishing is the grand finale of the movie.  It will be showing at the Pink Garter Theater in Jackson hosted by American Rivers.  For the rest of you, have a look at the Tour for the location near you.


Is it ever too early to plan for Christmas?  I don’t think so.  My friend Harvey Cohen of FishArtGifts.com is the place to go for the angler who has everything.  Here we offer more forty products and you can get any fish I’ve painted on them.  Be sure to check it out blog-Oct-26-2013-4-Jeff-Currier-peacock-bass-coffee-mugif you haven’t recently.

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!
