Work Now Fish Later

by | Mar 25, 2013 | Uncategorized

I’m first to notice the blog is lacking in the fishing reports.  I apologize deeply, but you can only imagine how things pile up after three months on the road.  My body also craved some hardcore exercise and with some March snowstorms the x-country skiing has been hard to resist.  It’s wonderful to be home.
Between the snow play it’s been catching up on art projects.  Lately I’ve been drawing swimming fish on Cliff Fly Boxes so this week took the movement to my watercolor paper.  I believe it’s the beginning of a new era to my art style.  And check out the logo I drew for the Upper Bear River Chapter of Trout Unlimited – another true challenge with the sharpies.
Tonight it’s off to the South Fork Lodge to help teach a guide school.  My work begins by giving my presentation “Evolution of World Traveling Fly Fisherman”, basically a show to encourage new guides and fly shop folks to take their new job opportunity to the fullest.  Then tomorrow I’ll help with several classes and hopefully wet a line myself on the South Fork.
Have I mentioned my return with the Himalayan Outback coming soon?  Stay tuned. . .

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!
