EDITORIAL | TROUT MAGAZINE | TABLE OF CONTENTS
Spring 2016

The new issue of TROUT magazine is hot off the press. I’m thrilled and humbled to have landed the Table of Contents image. This is a photo of a wild sea run rainbow/steelhead from an incredible place that needs to be protected, The Tongass National Forest.

You can get your copy a few different ways. Often your local angling shop will have them or you can get it free with your Trout Unlimited membership. I am member of Trout Unlimited. TU’s conservation and restoration work in and around my home waters is vital for the survival of an ecosystem and native species such as the Cutthroat Trout. For that I am very thankful and one of the reasons I donate. What’s your reason?

I’m always very excited to see images on on actual paper. There’s no substitute for holding a magazine and turning the pages. I’m thrilled to see these images made it to the final cut.

NORTHWEST FLY FISHING | EDITORIAL

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.

AMERICAN ANGLER MAGAZINE | EDITORIAL

AMERICAN ANGLER MAGAZINE | EDITORIAL
Bristol Bay, Alaska

I’m always thrilled to see my images in print, no matter how big or how small or the location where its placed. Of course the cover shot is the most coveted and then on down the layout list it goes. Often time’s images accompany articles and tid-bits. I couldn’t be more happy to see this image tied in with an article that needs some much needed attention in the day and age of “grip and cringe” and targeting big spawners off their beds.

The fishing media is exploding, for better and for worse. It’s up to those who have the power to say something and do something to act with a voice and a backbone and help educate all anglers to the sport. Fly Fishing is a big hit amongst the hip outdoor crowd now, and although they are consciously eating at the lasted whole food stores in the city, they are unknowingly hurting the very thing they so called love and protect, nature. From hot spotting locations, to fishing when the temps are too hot, to raping big vulnerable spawning fish off their beds in hopes to drop the latest ‘gram, things are certainly changing, for the worse?

Bravo to both the author and the editors for running such a hot topic. I hope to see more articles like this in the future and I hope that those who enjoy nature become more educated in their actions…ignorance isn’t actually bliss. Head down to your local shop to get your copy today, or better yet, sign up for a yearly subscription.

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.

HALFBEAK | BALLYHOO

HALFBEAK | BALLYHOO
Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Belize

A small school of Ballyhoo feeds on floating seagrass in Belize. Tucked up tight to the surface, drifting with currents and blending into the colors. If you look closely you see they are tipped with lots of color and have a unique lower jaw.
