Commercial Advertisement 

A few new Hatch Outdoors Ads have been surfacing this spring season, its always great to see the fruits of our labor seeing the light of day.

These images always take a team effort, these two here were helped created with global guide Gabriel Gygax in Xcalak Mexico in the first photo and Tom Melvin of Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures in Caye Caulker Belize in the second image. Big thanks to all the anglers, manufacture, lodges, staff, guides, logistics agents, etc, who helped with the process, these images wouldn’t be created without your help and continued support.

SOUTHEAST ALASKA | FIELD ASSIGNMENT

SEAK TRIP RECAP
Steelhead + Crab + Prawns = OH MY!

I was certainly happy to get the call to head to Southeast Alaska this past spring. This remote temperate rainforest is a place of adventure, wonder and some of the best wild steelhead fishing around. The weather, the climate, the tides, the terrain and just trying to get there also makes it one of the most vigorous angling exploits imaginable, the temperate rainforest is not for the faint of heart. However, besides the constant uphill battle, this is also one of the most thrilling adventures a fly angler can have! It was a fun week of crab, prawns, and steelhead. I can’t wait to return.

For more on the trip and to book your trip be sure to check out the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures trip report on the blog and the link to the complete stock image archives.

HATCH OUTDOORS AD | TFFJ 2015

HATCH OUTDOORS AD | TFFJ 2015
Cayo Largo, Cuba

A new Hatch Outdoors Ad hits print in winter issue of the The FlyFish Journal. This image was created on the pristine flats of Cuba with Tom Melvin and Avalon fishing guide Keinlert… and of course a Hatch 7+ Plus. We got really lucky, and had great fishing for the shoot. And yes, real actual fish were actually caught for the creation of this shoot.

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.

KULIK PORCUPINE

KULIK PORCUPINE
Kulik River in Alaska

Local river rat …err…I mean Porcupine, on the Kulik River in Alaska. It was leisurely hanging out in the tree overlooking a staging Sockeye Salmon run. Perhaps animals are also in awe at the metamorphosis that is about to take place, the circle of life.
