WAYPOINTS WITH JIM KLUG: PODCAST

WAYPOINTS WITH JIM KLUG: PODCAST
episode #4

I had the opportunity to sit down with Jim Klug in Bozeman, Montana to record an episode of his new podcast, Waypoints – The Podcast of Adventure Angling.

Jim’s new podcast was created for those that fish and for those that travel to fish. Dive into the what, why, where and how of destination angling, discussing relevant topics and breaking down the issues that matter to those who travel and fish.

It was undoubtedly humbling to be asked to sit down and talk fishing, life, and photography. Take a listen – I hope you enjoy it.

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.

PATAGONIA DANNER BOOT

PATAGONIA DANNER BOOT 2019
Washington State

Earlier this year Patagonia Ambassador Eric Paulson and I were commissioned to take the new Patagonia boots from Danner into the field. I always like shooting with Eric, it’s hard work, fast-paced, everyone knows their role and its never ever a dull moment. From knocking out teeth to torrential downpours, we seem to never time the weather right but we always return with new fishing stories of adventure and a few new images.

ANCHORED WITH APRIL VOKEY: PODCAST
episode #133

I had the fortunate opportunity to sit down with world-renowned angler April Vokey in Flordia to record an episode of her Anchored podcast. We had just finished shooting an episode of Das Boat and found ourselves held up with the rest of the crew in Orlando for the ICAST trade show, a perfect time for a podcast. It was undoubtedly humbling to be asked to sit down and talk fishing, life, and photography. Take a listen – I hope you enjoy it.

SAGE FLY FISHING: 2019 TROUT SEASON CAMPAIGN

SAGE FLY FISH: TROUT SEASON, 2019
Commercial Ad Campaign, Photography


We were excited when we received the call from our good friends over at Sage Fly Fishing to be part of their 2019 Trout Season campaign. The campaign consisted of a few parts and we were happy to be a small part of the big picture. The images are to accompany beautifully written words from writer Chris Dombrowski and a film from R.C. Cone/Tributary Digital Cinema. The theme was the Henry’s Fork — the surrounding people and places within the Yellowstone caldera and overall Western fly fishing. It was an honor to be part of this project.

Tucked back in the nook of the Yellowstone Caldera is what I call a beautiful slice of heaven. Over the years I’ve grown to deeply love this small little place with a mighty river. Although my camera often times takes me to far off places to document amazing fisheries, I always think of the Henry’s Fork and the friends who call it home. Thanks to all those that let me tag along on your adventures over the years and for letting me stick a camera in your face.

COMMERCIAL AD | THOMAS & THOMAS FLY RODS

CAMILLE EGDORF + THOMAS & THOMAS FLY RODS
Rocky Mountains, Montana

We were commissioned by Thomas & Thomas Fly Rod Company to create a portrait fly fishing Ad. The idea of the image was to showcase a Western fly fishing theme. We hitched up the drift boat, called the talent, and decided on a location. This was easier said than done.

We had the boat and an amazing angler, Camille Egdorf, but mother nature threw us a curveball, wildfires. The hard part was finding a location. The smoke was so thick you couldn’t see the mountains and the river in the same frame. Everywhere had a hazy look and feel. We had to re-schedule, schedule, re-schedule again, then re-schedule and repeat. Our deliverable deadline was fast approaching. Weather stations were constantly being checked. We really needed what some might call a fly casters adversary, wind. We needed some wind to blow the smoke out of the valleys. To make matters even more difficult, we needed wind from a very specific direction. The entire West was on fire, we needed the jet stream to shift the wind direction from blowing smoke into the state to blowing the smoke out. We needed a miracle.

In the 11th hour, we found one lone random location with what we call a “sucker hole”— a tiny spot where it’s clear amongst the clouds, or in this case, the smoky haze. With the right lens and distance from the subject, we shifted our composition to fit within the only clear spot in the entire valley. We were able to create a great image, meet the deadline, and get to print. Miracles do happen!

It’s always a special day to open the mailbox and see your image on the cover of a manufacturing catalog. This image is from a great trip to Alaska with a good fishing buddy, Tom Melvin. The moment I saw the light and the tail I knew I had something to work with. Pink Salmon are such amazing fish, I can’t wait to get back to photograph them again.

VIDEO EDIT | BELIZE, GRAND SLAM X 2

TWO GRAND SLAMS IN TWO DAYS
Bonefish + Permit + Tarpon x 2

BGP member Will Phelps put together a quick personal edit while on a content gathering assignment in Belize.

It’s not unheard of, but two grand slams in two days is a rarity! “We never expected it to be this good. On the last two days of our trip to Belize, it all came together. The calm and sunny conditions were perfect for flats fishing. Thanks to our incredible guides, Lincoln Westby and Marvin Leslie, two grand slams were boated. Luck was on our side, and angler Damien Nurre got it done”.

Check out the edit.
