DUAL COVERS | FRONT & BACK COVERS AMERICAN ANGLER Cover Published Editorial
The new September/October 2014 issue of American Angler Magazine is hot off the press and I’m deeply humbled and beyond thrilled to see my images on both the front and back cover!

KING SALMON | NUSHAGAK RIVER, ALASKA Protect Bristol Bay Alaska
Chinook Salmon (or King Salmon) in full colors is a beautiful sight to see. These fish have only one job: to travel back to spawn and to die. They unselfishly and willingly give up their life so the next generations can survive and the ecosystem can utilize its decaying body to gain nutrients. The cycle of life, it is so fragile.
