Who Needs a Rod?

blog-Oct-2-2013-fly-fishing-IdahoIf I become any more forgetful with age I’m in big trouble.  Friends Tim Brune and Josh Gallivan and I decided to fish four miles from the house.  Just incase anyone needed to bail early we each took our own cars.  When we got there I realized I forgot my rod.

 

blog-Oct-2-2013-2-Flyfishing-in-IdahoLast week on the Henry’s Fork I forgot my flies but was able to borrow a friend’s box.  But today, neither Tim nor Josh had an extra rod.  I thought for a minute about heading home to get my 4-weight Ross Rx but then realized I’d be ok.  I had two beers and a fantastic cigar I received as a gift a few months ago.  “Who needs a rod?” I declared.

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!
