It’s always a big surprise when you land a cover. I couldn’t be more happy to see this photo of Doug McKnight on the cover of the Hatch Outdoors Angler’s Annual catalog. The photo was created on a great trip in the Bahamas. While surprised by the cover, I am deeply humbled by words that accompany my photo essay written by my friend, John Torok — co-owner of Hatch. I am honored. It’s been a wonderful relationship with the Hatch crew over the years, and I certainly wouldn’t be doing what I am doing without their support. Thank you!

Getting great images in the field always take a team effort, always. This image was from a trip with Shaun lawson of Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures. We were at Miminiska Lodge in Ontario. On this day we were in the lake fishing for pike and walleye. Big thanks to all the anglers, manufactures, lodges, staff, guides, logistics agents, etc, who helped with the process, these images wouldn’t be created without your help and continued support.

Tis the season for snow and the joys of winter. We are happy to have our images accompanying this years Hatch Holiday Gift guide, a few website headers and winter ads. It seemed like only yesterday Zach Wheeler and I were fishing right out of our frozen snowy doorstep on the Henry’s Fork River in Yellowstone Caldera. I really enjoy the quiet and solitude winter fishing can bring and I also really enjoy those monster winter hatches when the stars align.

The new issue of TROUT magazine is hot off the press. I’m thrilled and humbled to have landed the cover image. This is my second cover with TROUT Magazine as a photographer and I couldn’t be more pleased.
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?
