PATAGONIA WORKBOOK FALL 2016 | PUBLISHED Amazon Jungle, Bolivia
I am very happy to see an image make it to print in the 2016 Patagonia Fall Workbook. Last year I had the opportunity to visit the jungle of Bolivia and photograph and catch golden dorado, it was a life long dream. Although the fishing was amazing, the people and the culture really was inspiring. It was a humbling experience fishing with them.

NW TOUR PT 3 | FIELD ASSIGNMENT Rogue River, Oregon
The last stop of the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures Pacific Northwest Tour finished on Oregon’s Rogue River with Tight Lines Fly Fishing, run by the legendary Helfrich Family. Now run by the fourth generation, they certainly know their stuff. Since 1925, they’ve been in the business of running big whitewater and chasing fish in drift boats. The guide crew was super pro and we were definitely in the presence of river masters!
Dry fly fishing for “half-pounder” steelhead was hot and the Rogue River twitch technique produced some great fighting fish. The river itself was stunning, and the scenery, wildlife, and big rapids all created a big, exciting adventure. We camped at different lodges along the way, toured historical sites and ate like royalty (We highly recommend the pork chops!). A big thanks to Tight Lines Fly Fishing and all those who helped make this leg of the trip a success!
NW TOUR PT 2 | FIELD ASSIGNMENT Klickitat River, Washington
For the second leg of the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures Pacific Northwest Tour, we headed south to the Klickitat River. We said farewell to Jeff and CJ at Black Bear Lodge and traveled to The Steelhead Ranch, another program with The Evening Hatch. Coffee was on at 5:45 AM and soon after followed a hearty breakfast. We tossed gear in the truck and were out the door with owner Jack Mitchell right at sun-up. Fishing the upper canyon of the Klickitat wasn’t easy; the recent rain created some tough conditions. But we managed to bring a fish to hand, thanks to Cameron. The staff at The Evening Hatch was top-notch — very friendly and accommodating. The lodge amenities are very comfortable and meet all the expectations for a well-run operation. We can’t wait to return! Next, we’re heading across the mighty Columbia to Oregon. Stay tuned!
NW TOUR PT 1 | FIELD ASSIGNMENT Upper Columbia River, Washington
The first leg of the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures Pacific Northwest Tour kicked off on the upper Columbia River with The Evening Hatch fly shop. The crew hit the road early and drove from Bozeman to Northport, WA where they settled into the Black Bear Lodge for the evening. The Lodge is a comfortable three-bedroom riverfront cabin with all the amenities needed for a great stay. Add delicious home-cooked family-style cuisine and a stout fishery and this is an ideal place for serious anglers focused on catching massive rainbow trout. From the photographic evidence below, you can see the crew fared well.
I am now headed with team to southwestern Washington to The Steelhead Ranch, another program operated by the The Evening Hatch. Stay tuned for more updates from the open road.

I’m happy to see the new 2016 Las pampas Lodge catalog in print. Every year I look forward to my yearly visit. The fishing is great, but it’s the overall adventure that makes it so appealing to me. It will always be a favorite!
