I’m delighted to see few of my images accompanied the Exposure Section of the current issue of Northwest Fly Fishing Magazine. It’s always a humbling honor to be amongst the other great photos and photographers on a photo gallery piece. Seems like it was just yesterday when I was photographing Brad Miller spinning up his favorite go to pattern in anticipation of the big bug hatch and fishing with my then roommate Brandon Prince, who was trying not to choke on a mouthful of salmonflies, because he was starving? Only a guide knows the feeling? Ha.

This image is of Brad Miller when he was guiding at TroutHunter Lodge guide in Idaho. Brad and a few others took advantage of a rare day off so the crew hitched up the boats headed to the lower Henry’s Fork river. It was a great day of fishing with stoneflies and streamers for brown trout. Over the years Brad has helped me create many great images: Ozzie the Osprey, a rare mountain orchid bloom, been a stunt caster for a few of my commercial shoots and of course there is the fishing. Big thanks for all the help over the years my friend.

WANDERLUST PHOTO WORKSHOP Waldorf School in Bend & TroutHunter lodge Henry’s Fork, Idaho
My friend and amazing outdoor clothing designer, Kim Brannock, called me about a creative fundraiser she was doing for her daughter’s school and was in need of participants. With the help of Patagonia ambassador Mille Paini and TroutHunter lodge we put together a fun Fish and Photo workshop on the famed Henry’s Fork River, a “what it takes to get it done in the field” so to speak. Ryan and Dennis were the lucky bidding winners and they showed up from Oregon with camera and fishing rods ready to go. We had some great light but battled tough fishing conditions and as always we made the best of times. The last day the fellas were rewarded with some great fishing and big fish, a bonus! We touched on the basics of photography but more so the technical little tricks and tips to get the shot. We nailed some great imagery and iconic enough, a few images that day have been selected to see print. A big thanks Ryan and Dennis and to Rich and Mille at TroutHunter and all the guides and staff, it was a great fundraiser for a great cause.
THE SISTINE CHAPEL | EDITORIAL The Complete Fly fisherman Magazine
I had the opportunity to join some friends for a day of fishing. It was a great crew and a really fun day showing new friends the local water. Watching their reactions to the surroundings, the river and the fish were inspiring. Often times what we see everyday we take for granted. I was thrilled to see how excited my own backyard was to them. And in turn, it was also exciting for me to be able to share my own backyard experience with them. Gerhard Laubscher wrote an article on his trip to the ‘Ranch & fishing and it was published in the December edition of “The Complete Fly fisherman” magazine. I was happy to be able to supply him with a few images. Take a look; it’s a great read.
