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.
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.
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.
OFF THE GRID STUDIOS | CORAZÓN New film for the 2017 Fly Fishing Film Tour
And that’s a wrap! We just finished the last scenes for the new film project premiering in 2017 with the Fly Fishing Film Tour and we all couldn’t be more pleased. The filming and interviews are completed and our editors, writers and music engineers are putting their final touches on to the project. A big thanks to the man with a giant heart, “Sandflea”! We are all going to miss Mrs. Sandflea’s home cooking! And a huge thanks to all those who opened their door to the production team, we miss certainly Mexico already.

I’m pleased to see a few of my images made it into the new issue of American Angler Magazine. Ironically, the TOC image of the brook trout skin are both from the same location and shoot.
Big thanks to Rick Matney for always getting it done.
Head down to your local shop and grab a copy, or better yet, get a yearly subscription and never miss an issue. + American Angler Magazine –http://www.americanangler.com/
One of my favorite types of images to shoot is the silhouette. I always enjoy the creative aspects of trying to shape objects with light. Its interesting to see the little details that were initially overlooked show up with substance. Often times its these little things that polish the image: an open hand, backpack straps, fly line, the faint facial expressions. A simple image with a big imagination.
