Fly Fishing Through a Mid-Life Crisis

with Jeff Currier

7:30 p.m., Thursday, October 13th, 2016

San Marino Masonic Lodge

3130 Huntington Drive
San Marino, CA 91108



While many men in their 50s experience what is commonly labeled a “midlife crisis,” Jeff Currier believes he may have died and gone to heaven. In 2009 Jeff quit his day job of running a fly shop for almost 25 years and took off on his own. Why? To follow his dreams.

Let’s just say opportunities to go on fishing trips have been the bulk of Jeff’s new career. Since that last day in the fly shop, Jeff has traveled to more than 50 countries, added 100 pages to his passport, and caught more than 200 new species of exotic fish to lengthen what was already his long list.

No doubt Jeff has been fortunate. During his “Fly Fishing through Midlife Heaven” presentation, you will be able to relax and enjoy the stories of how these amazing trips landed in Jeff’s lap. Then, tighten your seatbelt as Jeff treats you to fly fishing for tigerfish in Tanzania, golden mahseer in India, a variety of saltwater species from the Red Sea of Sudan, as well as the islands of the Seychelles. And last but not least, be ready to see the arapaima, the world’s largest game fish to succumb to a fly in the rain forest of Guyana.

Jeff was born in Massachusetts and grew up fly fishing throughout New England. Today he resides in Victor, Idaho, with his wife Yvonne (affectionately known to all as Granny) where he bases his globetrotting career in fly fishing.

Jeff’s articles, photographs and artwork have graced the pages of magazines, catalogs, brochures and books. Jeff is also a sought after expert for television programs and has won numerous fly casting competitions, the Jackson Hole “One Fly”, and competed throughout the world in fly fishing.

Jeff has always been a favorite speaker as he brings a sense of humor, enthusiasm, approachability and more than 40 years of entertaining and informative experiences.
