BHA STREAM ACCESS REPORT | COVER

BACKCOUNTRY HUNTERS & ANGLERS
Stream Access Report 2017

Public stream access is an important part of my life, and profession, so I couldn’t be more pleased to see these images accompany such an important part of our industry and heritage. I urge anyone that is concerned about public lands and public stream access to please get involved. If its not BHA, get involved in a local organization that is working towards a common sense compromise. Our future generations will thank you!

Check out the BHA link for detailed information on each region of the US. Its worth the read. Its also free, so download it, read it and pass it along.

Get informed, get involved.

OTHER SIDE OF THE LENS | PATAGONIA FLY FISH AD

TOUGH PUFF PRINT AD
Olympic Peninsula, Washington 

At one time in my career, I was in front of the lens, pictured on a few covers, a couple commercial ads, and in editorial publications. That seems so long ago. These days, I am mostly behind the lens, documenting anglers and their lifestyles and journeys. I am usually pretty good at avoiding the other end of the camera, but every now and again I get photographed. So you might say I was very surprised to see the new Patagonia Fish Ad for the new Tough Puff was of a photo of me!

This image was shot by Patagonia Ambassador Eric Paulson while we were on assignment for a shoot. I didn’t know he was quietly sniping photos while I was trying to navigate what seemed to be miles of log jams. It was already a fun trip so this image is icing on the cake. Nice shooting, Eric!

Check out their site for more information on the
new Tough Puff from Patagonia you won’t be disappointed.

HATCH OUTDOORS | SUMMER AD 2017

HATCH PREMIUM FLY FISHING PRODUCTS
Drake Magazine summer 2017 Ad

A few new Hatch Outdoors Ads have been surfacing this summer season, I’m happy to see that we landed one of them! I say this all the time, but its true, its always nice to actually hold the fruits of our labor in print.

Getting great images in the field always take a team effort, always. This image was from a trip with Shaun lawson of Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures. We were at Miminiska Lodge in Ontario. On this day we were in the lake fishing for pike and walleye. Big thanks to all the anglers, manufactures, lodges, staff, guides, logistics agents, etc, who helped with the process, these images wouldn’t be created without your help and continued support.
