Sorry for the lack of blogging. You’ve not missed any fishing adventures. When you’re an artist, Christmas is the busiest time of the year and I’ve been grinding away. Twice I nearly snuck to the water but last minute commission orders continue to come in. Check out my first ever painting of a Westslope Cutthroat.
I also spoke in Bozeman, Montana last Wednesday night. My PowerPoint presentation was “Improve Your Fishing Photography”. Lucky for me and the Madison – Gallatin Chapter of Trout Unlimited, I left Victor, Idaho at 9 AM for what is generally a four hour drive. Snow and wind turned the normally enjoyable drive in to a six hour white knuckler. Even downtown Bozeman was a snowy skating rink. They don’t call me "Monsoon Currier" for nothing. The early start got me there in plenty of time and I had a great night and a surprisingly large crowd despite the weather. Then Thursday I drove a whopping 35 MPH all the way from Bozeman to home – another 6 hour plus drive thanks to hard packed ice.
Last but not least, I’m updating all my shows for my speaking circuit. I’ll start the 2013 season at the Denver Fly Fishing Show and go non stop till mid March. Sure, that includes hosting a week in the Amazon in February, but overall I’ll be doing more than 40 presentations nationwide the next three months.
Hope to see you soon!
