Last summer I had the opportunity to do some film and photo work for Patagonia. Nothing fancy, capture b-roll and shoot still images. You never know what will get used, so it’s always a pleasant surprise to see the final production. It’s great to live those moments again. It was a great chance to work with so many great people, some long time friends, and somehow ones.
Patagonia Books Footage | Yvon Chouinard and Maru Mazzo
I was able to help capture footage for Yvon Chouinard and Maru Mazzo for their upcoming new book, Simple Fly Fishing Techniques for Tenkara and Rod & Reel for A tidbit of the footage used. It was great to spend the day with Yvon and Maru. I enjoy every opportunity I get to spend time YC. It’s inspiring to me talk to a person who does what he says and lives what he leads: A dirtbag in every sense of the word.

Patagonia Women’s Waders | Millie Paini
New women’s Patagonia waders are now available. I’m very happy to able to work with Millie Paini throughout the year. It’s really cool to see a company support woman’s anglers. The new folks might not remember but a long time ago, Millie was the poster woman for Patagonia women’s waders. A decade later, she still here, still fishing hard and still making products better for women. The “drop-down” has been in talks for many years mainly due to techniques used when fishing with men out of drift boats and flats boats, etc. I was excited to be able to work with film-maker Travis Lowe for Millie’s segment on the Henry’s Fork. The new 2014 Women’s waders line up is made by angling women for angling women.
