My name is Steve Culton, and I live in Connecticut. I am a fly fishing guide and instructor, fly tyer, and freelance writer. My work has appeared in Field & Stream, American Angler, The Flyfish Journal, The Drake, Flyfishing & Tying Journal, Eastern Fly Fishing, Fly Rod & Reel Online, and the Mid Atlantic Fly Fishing Guide.
Most of all, I’m just a guy who loves fly fishing.
My passions include trout, striped bass, steelhead, smallmouth bass, and small streams with wild brook trout populations. I occasionally teach out of UpCountry Sportfishing in New Hartford, CT. I also give presentations on fly fishing to clubs and organizations around the northeast, as well as at regional and national shows. You can contact me here or at swculton [at] yahoo.com.
So, why Currentseams?
Current seams are magical places. They form where slow water meets fast water. Where depth meets shallows. Where bottom structure impedes flow.
Trout, striped bass, and steelhead love current seams. Whenever I am fly fishing, I am always on the lookout for their telltale wrinkles. I never know what I will find within. But I know it will usually be something good.
Currentseams.com is a library for my articles, stories, fly tying, fishing reports, videos, my guide service The Fisherman LLC, and more. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t suck. But I leave that decision to you. The site gets regular updates, so be sure to check it out every few days. If you like what you see here, help me out and tell a friend. Feel free to ask questions if you have them. Leave a comment on my writing. Or just say hi. Okay?
I’m usually not this grumpy. Although my wife might disagree.
