GRAY’S SPORTING JOURNAL: PHOTO ESSAY // UNTOUCHED

PHOTO ESSSAY | SAINT BRANDONS ATOLL
6° 35’0.0”S 59° 40’0.0”E – North East of Mauritius

I’m thrilled to see the voyage to St. Brandon’s Atoll in the Mauritius made it to print. Each time I think about this incredible adventure with the crew at Flycastaway I still can’t believe it. What an incredible area, I had no idea places like this actually existed in reality. A journey I will always remember and a place I will always want to return to.

This essay is from my trip last year while on assignment for Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures with the amazing crew at Fly Castaway. It has been said the Cargados Carajos Shoals is very remote, way off-the-grid and is extremely difficult to get there. I couldn’t agree more. 

Big thanks to William for letting me tag along with him on the flats with my camera and to my bunk mate Murray for putting up with all my gear, I’m glad we both had the same taste in room temperate!

Be sure to head down to your local shop and grab yourself a copy or better yet, order a subscription, you won’t be disappointed. This issue is packed with great articles and some impressive photo essays, its not one to be missed.

RENÉ HARROP ARTICLE
Gray Drakes :: Mar/Apr 2017

Hot off the press, René Harrop’s article on the Gray Drakes in the recent issue of Fly Fisherman Magazine. Rene’s articles are always very well written and packed with decades of on the water knowledge, a great read. It’s also a great honor for me to see a few of my images were selected to complement an article written by person whom I have a lot of admiration and respect for. A wise and skillful angler, René has opened my eyes to the master’s game of technical dry fly fishing, to the life lessons found on the river and has been an instrumental person in my career, I am very grateful to call him friend. I look forward to the next time we talk life while watching the bugs float down the river from the observation deck.

PATAGONIA | FLY FISH CATALOG 2017

CATALOG & PRINT AD
Las Pampas, Argentina

Each year I look forward to my annual visit to the rural area of Las Pampas. One of the great things about this region is the culture and people who live there. The fishing is good, the food is fresh, the crew is outstanding and the surrounding landscape is inspirational. Spending time with Oggy and the Las Pampas Lodge team is undoubtedly a yearly highlight for me. Ironically, I just returned home from my visit a few days ago, opened the catalog and saw one of my favorite places and people gracing the pages. It is an honor to see this moment make the cut for the 2017 Patagonia Fly Fishing Catalog and print Ad campaign; it was one of those days you will always remember. I’m already planning for next year.

YELLOW DOG FLYFISHING + PHOTO WORKSHOPS 2017


FLY FISHING PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS 2017
FISH . PHOTO . TRAVEL
Belize, Idaho, Cuba


Join Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures for a hands-on, adventure-filled outdoor and fishing photography workshop in 2017. We have a great line-up of instructors this year, making it a great opportunity to travel with us to Belize, Idaho or Cuba! This immersive workshop will be led by our highly accomplished team of adventure angling photographers. The school includes daily classes, in-the-field instruction, field trips, and all lodging and meals!

The idea for the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures on-the-water photo workshop was to create a hands on workshop that is taught by working professionals who specialize in adventure angling. We constructed a learning experience built around real time scenarios. Let’s face it: the light is rarely perfect when you finally catch the fish of a lifetime or finally take that once in a lifetime trip. Everyone wants to come home with those special moments. With this in mind, we created a curriculum that provides you with the necessary tools to create great images! The detailed instructional lesson plan is directly applied from the classroom into the field. Each participant has the help of an instructor with almost every shot. It’s a great educational experience for all levels.

Who Should Attend:
Everyone! Whether you just purchased your first camera and are wondering what all those buttons are for or you’re a seasoned amateur to intermediate photographer wanting to make the most of your fishing and travel photography, this workshop will advance your skill level and improve your photos in the field. With three working professional photographers instructing, we’re able (and happy) to teach and accommodate photographers of any skill level. The diversity of instruction and a curriculum designed specifically for outdoor, travel and fishing photography, this workshop will help you to “up your game” and make the most of your future fishing trips.

YELLOW DOG PHOTO SCHOOL | RECAP

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.
