Golden Dorado, Boliva
We love seeing this image of the Dorado being used on the new header for the fly fishing section on the Patagonia website. This brings back some great memories from a trip to the Amazon jungle a few years back. Bolivian golden dorado are such an an incredible specie.

PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP || FISH, PHOTO & TRAVEL
El Pescador, Belize
This past October we launched the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures Photo Workshop series. This program focuses on fishing, travel and photography. For our first stop we chose Belize as it’s an easy location to gets to, has amazing scenery with a variety of opportunities to photograph. We teamed up with the folks at El Pescador Lodge, who took great care of our large group. We held daily presentations with cold beers and great tasting local finger food. A jam-packed itinerary followed a very detailed course curriculum that incorporated fun daily field assignments. It was exciting to see the progression of the participants each day as we toured the towns, snorkeled in the reserve and fished the famed Savannah flats. The weather was dramatic at times and only a few of us somehow dodged the down poor. All in all it was a great experience and a huge success. This is the first of many and I am looking forward to the upcoming 2017 lineup.

It is great to see these images on the Sage Flyfish website. I had a blast traveling around the West last year with the Sage team. Each place was just as unique as the last and each person we met along the way showed us their amazing waters. Big thanks to everyone who helped create these moments.

FLY FISHING FILM TOUR
Off the Grid Studios: Filmed on location in Mexico and Wyoming
I am pleased to announce the trailer for the 2017 Fly Fishing Film Tour film, Corazón has just dropped. This is a film created by our collective group, Off The Grid Studios. It was great to spend time working with such an inspiring story with an incredible group of individuals.
CORAZON || FILM
“On the tiny island of Holbox, a stone’s throw from the Mexico mainland, lives a legendary angler named Sandflea. People from all over the world travel here to fish with him. One such gringo is Mike Dawes, who stumbled into Sandflea’s welcoming home years ago and quickly became family. On land, Sandflea’s a dad, a grandfather, the unofficial mayor, a teacher, and the main source of dinner for his neighbors and friends. On the water, he’s as schooled as they come when it comes to permit and tarpon. But a childhood bout of Scarlet fever weakened Sandflea’s heart and has led him to multiple surgeries. His willingness to share with all of us makes it all the more ironic . . . the guy with the biggest heart needs a new one. This is the story of the unlikely friendship between two anglers and the willingness of the fly fishing industry to rally around a guide in need.”

HATCH OUTDOORS | WINTER
Fly Fishing Gear
Tis the season for snow and the joys of winter. We are happy to have our images accompanying this years Hatch Holiday Gift guide, a few website headers and winter ads. It seemed like only yesterday Zach Wheeler and I were fishing right out of our frozen snowy doorstep on the Henry’s Fork River in Yellowstone Caldera. I really enjoy the quiet and solitude winter fishing can bring and I also really enjoy those monster winter hatches when the stars align.

PATAGONIA FISH | Fall workbook 2017
Argentina & Alaska
The new Patagonia Fish workbook for the Fall 2017 line-up is hot off the press and in the hands of dealer and reps. I was blown away to see my good friend Augustine Fox on the cover. I think it captures nicely the very essence of Agustin (Oggy) Fox, Argentina and the Patagonia brand. it was a memorable day! Another surprise was seeing this image of Yvon make it to print, ironically this was a day we all spent with our good pal Oggy.
A big thank you to all those folks who allow me to follow them around with my camera and document small significant moments of your life.
Check out all the latest and greatest in outdoor gear.
