During the winter months, Jeff can be found lecturing throughout the United States on nearly every aspect of fly fishing. He demonstrates fly casting, teaches seminars on the basics to the advanced skills of fly fishing, as well as many fly fishing destination programs ranging from his home waters in the Rockies to the most remote corners of the globe.
Although Jeff spends much of his time fly fishing for trout, he chases many other fish types as well. He is a walking encyclopedia for fly fishing for species worldwide. He has currently taken over 160 kinds of fish with a fly rod from both fresh and saltwater in over thirty countries. He is constantly developing techniques for catching the most exotic fish imaginable in places where even the most avid adventurer refuses to go. His most recent travels have found him chasing tigerfish in Africa, payara in Venezuela and mahseer in India.
Jeff's most recent accomplishment was leading Team USA to its first ever top-ten finish in the World Flyfishing Championships in Jaca, Spain. During the competition Jeff managed to fool fish on every venue met and place third in the individual standings, becoming the first North American ever to take home a medal in the twenty-four year history of the event.
Jeff brings a sense of humor, enthusiasm, and over thirty years of fly fishing to wherever he goes.
