#KEEPEMWET | THIS IS FLY EDITORIAL Published Editorial Educational
I was asked by the good Doctor Andy Danylchuk to participate with images for an article, Fundamentals of Fish, about fish handling practices for This is Fly. He asked a few photographers for photos showing the good, the bad and the ugly to demonstration proper and improper fish handling. I normally don’t throw myself under the bus on purpose. It’s a has been a hot topic of discussion for a while now with the crew at Patagonia. They’ve taken responsibility to pave the way and not show the fish out of its element. I think it’s a bold step in the right direction for being good stewards of the resources… and putting your money where your mouth is.
In a nutshell – we are drowning fish with air and squeezing them a bit too hard. We need to be more conscious of the way we handle the very thing we all love so very much, the fish.

COVER | FLYFISHING & TYING JOURNAL Spring 2015 issue | Island park, Idaho
The new spring issue of the Flyfishing & Tying Journal hit the newsstands a few weeks ago. I’m excited to see my image landed on the cover! This was a great surprise, it wasn’t expected.
The cover image is of TroutHunter guide Pat Gaffney. Randomly had a day off and we took advantage of the late spring hatch on the Henry’s Fork River. Also included is a photo essay on the Henry’s Fork Salmonfly hatch. I was fortunate to be able to get on the water with some top guides, who just so happen to be my friends. Images include: Brandon Prince, Phil Sgamma, Brad Miller and Carlos Chaves.
