Wisconsin Bound

fly-fishingA lot has happened since I blogged about all the artwork I was doing and how Granny and I were preparing for our May 15 yard sale.  Two days ago Granny and I hopped in the 91 Explorer and drove for Wisconsin.  We talked about doing another road trip for the last month and a week ago Granny got two weeks off and that’s all it took.


Wall-DrugI must say we were a little nervous about my Explorer going all the way to WI.  It’s been running great and it was a champ for our Arizona trip in February.  But you can’t take away the fact that its 20 years old.  But we covered Wyoming, stopped at Wall Drug in South Dakota and here we are tonight in Lanesboro, Minnesota.


Lanesboro-MinnesotaWe are going to fish this trip but that’s not all this excursion is about.  We will visit friends and look at some cool towns around the Wisconsin.  This is my old stomping grounds from college and I had great fishing those days.  We often joke that maybe we’ll move back.  Who knows?  For now however, Granny and I are ready to check out the brew pub down the street from our hotel.  Tomorrow we’ll head across the Mississippi River to Wisconsin.

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!
