ST BRANDONS ATOLL RECAP Middle of Nowhere, Indian Ocean
I just returned from an inspiring trip to the Indian Ocean and ST Brandon’s Atoll, what an incredible adventure. I never knew a place like that existed. It was very inspiring to see a healthy fishery and ecosystem that is still intact. The wade fishing for bonefish was as incredible. It’s an ocean safari of animals and birds that I’ve never seen before. It’s not a place for everyone, a long journey filed with flights and a massive ocean crossing. We had a great captain and the 15-foot seas for 24+ hours didn’t seem so bad. Hats off to the FlyCasway team for showing me their amazing office. Thanks for your hospitality!
Last year the crew set out to create a few new ad campaigns for SAGE Flyfishing with both still images and motion for their new rod line-up. The fruits of our labor have started to trickle out from the SAGE Flyfish Camp this spring. The second addition is the PULSE Rod. The project went live last week and I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.
This was a very entertaining project to be apart of and was never a dull moment. It was great to get to know Mark and his staff and to visit the famed Craig Montana and the Missouri River. Hat’s off to the production crew who made this happen: Drew Stoecklein, Bobby Foster, Catie Webster. Of course big thanks goes out to Mark Raisler, Headhunters Fly Shop and all the great folks at Sage Flyfish who trusted us with this wonderful project. Stay tuned, more to come.
EDITORIAL | TROUT MAGAZINE | TABLE OF CONTENTS Spring 2016
The new issue of TROUT magazine is hot off the press. I’m thrilled and humbled to have landed the Table of Contents image. This is a photo of a wild sea run rainbow/steelhead from an incredible place that needs to be protected, The Tongass National Forest.
You can get your copy a few different ways. Often your local angling shop will have them or you can get it free with your Trout Unlimited membership. I am member of Trout Unlimited. TU’s conservation and restoration work in and around my home waters is vital for the survival of an ecosystem and native species such as the Cutthroat Trout. For that I am very thankful and one of the reasons I donate. What’s your reason?
I’m always thrilled to see my images in print, no matter how big or how small or the location where it’s placed. It’s just really nice to hold an actually printed photograph. I had an image squeak into the new issue of American Angler May/June 2016 issue. It’s an opening image for the feature article, “Supersize”. Fitting as this image was taken with my friend Rick Matney who certainly likes to catch super sized fish.
