Jeff Currier was born in Massachusetts in 1965 and grew up fly fishing throughout New England. After graduating from Masconomet Regional High School, his search for new fly fishing adventures led him to Northland College in Ashland, Wisc. After four years of hardcore fly fishing for walleye, Northern pike and muskellunge, in 1987 he graduated with a Naturalist Degree. After graduation he headed for Wyoming for a summer of trout bumming. This led to a fly shop management job in Jackson, Wyo., that for the next 23 years would take him fly fishing around the world.
Jeff’s adventures to more than 60 countries on six continents and more than 400 fly-caught species and counting, making him one of the foremost authorities in fly fishing. He has taught the basics of fly fishing and guided anglers all over the Yellowstone area and throughout the world in both fresh and saltwater. His greatest joy is to help folks catch fish by supplying simple advice.
During the fly-fishing show season, Jeff can be found with crowds of people watching, listening and actively participating in his presentations. Jeff’s programs entertain, inform and instruct through his stories and beautiful photography. Some of his shows take you to distant waters and a world of fly fishing that many don’t know exists and will leave you in awe that such creatures can be enticed to eat a fly!
