BASS PRO SHOPS / CABELAS FLY FISHING CATALOG 2020 Table of Contents
A few images made it into the pages of the 2020 Bass Pro Shops / Cabelas Fly Fishing Catalog this year. I’m always delighted to see our hard work in print. Big thanks to all those that help make these images come to reality.
We were delighted to see an image accompanying an article by Dave Karcynski in the new issue of American Angler Magazine. It’s not only fun to chase big brown trout but its equally as fun to photograph them, especially underwater.

WHITE RIVER FLY SHOP CATALOG 2019 Table of Contents
As a photographer, there is just something personally gratifying about holding an image on paper. This photo in the White River Fly Shop catalog brings back so many great memories of the adventure, comradery, and experience.
The first time I saw this area I was elated to see this how crystal clear this Argentine spring creek was. Then I saw the colors of the fish who call this water home. I still remember how excited I felt, I couldn’t wait to get my camera underwater. Luckily a few fish were caught, a few images were captured, a few lifelong memories were forged.
Public stream access is an important part of my life, and profession, so I couldn’t be more pleased to see these images accompany such an important part of our industry and heritage. I urge anyone that is concerned about public lands and public stream access to please get involved. If its not BHA, get involved in a local organization that is working towards a common sense compromise. Our future generations will thank you!
Check out the BHA link for detailed information on each region of the US. Its worth the read. Its also free, so download it, read it and pass it along.
PATAGONIA, ARGENTINA New Media for Las Pampas Lodge
Our team headed to Las Pampas Lodge this past spring for our annual Argentina trip. Las Pampas Lodge is located in a charming old traditional town surrounded by towering peaks and small, remote waters with great hatches and willing fish. Tucked away in the heart of the Patagonia, this small town certainly has a big fishing problem.
Many thanks to the lodge team for their time and energy. We truly enjoyed filming this winter with the LPL crew and look forward to our annual return in 2018.

I had a great labor Day weekend fishing with friends, enjoying my local waters. I’ve spent so much time working on the road that by circumstance I’ve neglected seeing my own backyard for most of the summer. It was really great to see it again.

The new 2016 summer issue of the Flyfishing & Tying Journal magazine just hit the newsstands. I am very happy to see that Brad and I landed the cover.
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.
I love fishing! I was raised an an angler, with a worm, a spinner and a fly and each has brought me some of the most memorable and valuable moments in my life. I’ve never been able to limit myself to fun. In 2014 I was in rural Argentina with a few great fishing friends, we had an amazing day fishing, with a Tenkara rod. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a group of anglers have so much camaraderie in an afternoon of fishings since the last time I was there the year before “playing baseball”. Played with 1 fly rod and 1 fly, taking turns with minimal casts, minimal steps, minimal time on the clock and if you swing and miss once, your out and then on to the next guy. There is much much more to fishing, than actually catching fish. This reminds me about the time we randomly found a lure while working on a slackline shoot in the backcountry, with no rod or reel or line around, we unraveled a inner sleeping bag cord, created a rig and caught a little fish. But this day, the day of the Tenkara, was amazing and it couldn’t have gone better.
YC – “Martin, have you ever used a tenkara rod?” MA – “No, never “ YC – “Well, its just like this (quick demonstration) want to try it?” MA – “ahhh, ok.. sure!”
