The new summer issue of the Drake Magazine is hot off the press! I am beyond thrilled to see this image of Doug McKnight releasing a permit on the cover. This is just one of three permit that Doug caught that morning on his “danger muffin” crab pattern, which The Drake Mag showcased in its winter issue.

This issue is not too be missed, it’s jam packed with abundant creative content, so be sure to head down to your local shop and grab a copy — or download it to your tablet and take it with you wherever you go.

NORTHWEST FLY FISHING MAGAZINE | EDITORIAL
Cayo Largo, Cuba

I’m very pleased to see this Cuban Jack in print. I visited Cuba on staff assignment for Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures with Tom Melvin. He and I toured the country eating ham and cheese sandwiches and chasing down a plethora of fish. A trip we will both never forget.

This one time, in Cayo Largo, we were cruising on the edge of the flats when we spotted a mini-school of mini-GT’s hunting. They were headed right for us, there was no time to react. It was an easy choice for the dry fly anglers to quickly grab the dryfly/topwater rod with a Brent Dawson’s crease fly attached. Without hesitation a cast was fired off in the direction of the hunting fish and the fly began going to work, causing a ruckus and throwing water in every direction. Within about 2.9 seconds the largest fish accelerated towards the fly and crushed it with aggression. The fight was on and a battle it was. These fish are so powerful … will eat dry flies/topwater flies … a no-brainer.

UNDERWATER JELLIES

UNDERWATER JELLIES
Caribbean, Belize

These are just a few of the many species of jellyfish found in Belize. Yes, there are a few species that can pack a deadly punch and give this specie a bad name. But for the majority of them, they are gentle creatures and you can easily out swim one. I know the second image (black and white photo) is referred to as a “Moon Jelly” but I am not certain of the other.

THE SACRIFICE OF A KING

KING SALMON | NUSHAGAK RIVER, ALASKA
Protect Bristol Bay Alaska

Chinook Salmon (or King Salmon) in full colors is a beautiful sight to see. These fish have only one job: to travel back to spawn and to die. They unselfishly and willingly give up their life so the next generations can survive and the ecosystem can utilize its decaying body to gain nutrients. The cycle of life, it is so fragile.

2015 LAS PAMPAS LODGE CATALOG | ARGENTINA

NEW 2015 LAS PAMPAS LODGE CATALOG IS HOT OFF THE PRESS!
Published, Commercial Catalog 

This is one of my favorite shoots that I look forward to every year. The fishing is great, the scenery is superb and the local people are the salt of the Earth. It’s the people that bring me back year after year. The culture, spirit and tradition of the old world are still alive and well.

Ol’ Henry got it right, but I’ve already knew it since a kid …. “Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.” … But sometimes I get too busy and forget, that is until I visit the quieter parts of the World, where time stops and Mother Nature roams free.

NATIVE PERCA FISH ARGENTINA
Native Perch  Specie 

John Hudgens releasing a native perca (Percichthys Trucha) from the Limay River, Argentina. It was great to see one of the few native species. We had a great day fishing and creating images with Ron Sorenson of Chocolate Lab Expeditions.

The Perca is an interesting fish, a modern fish some say… so like a Perch Bass Trout?

“Grouped under the common name existed four endemic percíctidos Patagonia: Percichthys trout and Percichthys vincigerrai (smallmouth bass), Percichthys colhuapiensis (largemouth bass) and Percichthys laevis . Modern DNA analysis techniques, resolved the questions of classification and determined that there is a single species in Argentina (Percichthys trout).”
