Winter Continues to Steam On By

by | Feb 20, 2017 | Uncategorized

Exhausted would be an understatement as I make my way home from Indianapolis this morning.  But you know I love it.  I just got done speaking and sketching on fly boxes for three days at the Indianapolis Boat, Travel and Sport Show.  The show was fantastic and I had a great time teaching and entertaining, but big shows (this one dwarfs the usual fly fishing shows) drain you.


Then this morning I checked out of my hotel at 4 AM, had an hour drive through pea soup fog, returned a rental car then caught my 6 AM flight from Indi towards Idaho.  I rarely put myself in such travel hell but with little time at home lately the early flight might allow me time for a ski this afternoon.


Next in line is a ten-day California tour.  It begins Thursday night speaking to Tracy Fly Fishers where I’ll present “Fly Fishing Warmwater – Bass, Pike, Carp and More” followed by Friday through Sunday at the Pleasanton Fly Fishing Show (I’ll post my Pleasanton Show seminar schedule Wednesday).  Then I’ll relax Monday and Tuesday and return to the stage in Bakersfield for a Carp talk then Fresno for Streamer Tactics.


Normally on this CA tour I head out on the Delta for a day of striped bass fishing with my friend Ben Byng.  Not this year.  The rains have doomed most fishing opportunities for this trip.

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!
