Yukon River Alaska Here I Come!

currier-pikeTime is flying.  I got home last Friday from two weeks of projects with a week to kill and catch up on things.  It seemed like I had tons of time to spare.  But no, the week whipped by and here I am at the Salt Lake Airport waiting for a flight to Anchorage, Alaska.


To be more specific, I’m hosting three friends, Baja pal Sammy Vigneri and Seychelles Cyclone survivors Steve Fitzsimon and Therese Trappazini to the Yukon River for huge northern pike and hopefully some sheefish.  This is a Yellow Dog hosted trip and we will be fishing with the outfit, Midnight Sun Trophy Pike Adventures.


The way today works is I’ll arrive in Anchorage at 8 PM AK time.  We overnight at the Lakefront Hotel then tomorrow catch an Air Taxi to Holy Cross.  This little town is in the boonies, about 300 miles NW of Anchorage.  That’s where the Midnight Sun crew picks us up and soon after we’ll be on the boat heading upstream to some incredibly remote waters.  We are scheduled to begin fishing tomorrow afternoon.


This should be a good one.  Stay tuned for more!

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!
