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.
SAGE FLY FISH: THE MISFIT SAVIORS Trout Season 2019
It was an honor to be a part of the Sage Fly Fish 2019 Trout Season project, The Misfit Saviors. The Henry’s Fork River is a special place for me personally. It has as much to do with the people as it does with the river. There have been so many gracious people that have helped me along the way. I wouldn’t be pursuing this line of work without each of them. I must admit, it was a bit nerve-racking being on the other side of the lens!
It was a real pleasure working with the director and cinematographer, R.C. Cone, and his crew. They were more than courteous and professional, as expected.
Hats off to all those who were involved. Thank you.
Sage Fly Fish Film, The Misfit Saviors “Returning to his roots in the Rockies, Bryan Gregson mastered photography & cinematography in the winter action sports industry under the tutelage of some of the top mountain shooters. After a series of injuries, and with unique help of the Henry’s Fork community, he then turned the lens to capturing fly fishing and adventure around the globe. This is the story of Bryan’s journey and the cast of misfit saviors that helped to keep the dream alive.”
We are thrilled to have an image accompanying an article about fly fishing in the Washington Post from author Chris Santella. The author heads to Idaho to fly fish on the famed Western water, the Henry’s Fork River with TroutHunter Lodge. Be sure to check out the article.
I’m delighted to see few of my images accompanied the Exposure Section of the current issue of Northwest Fly Fishing Magazine. It’s always a humbling honor to be amongst the other great photos and photographers on a photo gallery piece. Seems like it was just yesterday when I was photographing Brad Miller spinning up his favorite go to pattern in anticipation of the big bug hatch and fishing with my then roommate Brandon Prince, who was trying not to choke on a mouthful of salmonflies, because he was starving? Only a guide knows the feeling? Ha.

In the latest issue of American Angler Magazine this image accompanies author James P. Spica Jr.’s article “Going Dark” where he explores fishing at night for monster trout. Its great to see this image of Jon Stiehl in print.
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.

WANDERLUST PHOTO WORKSHOP Waldorf School in Bend & TroutHunter lodge Henry’s Fork, Idaho
My friend and amazing outdoor clothing designer, Kim Brannock, called me about a creative fundraiser she was doing for her daughter’s school and was in need of participants. With the help of Patagonia ambassador Mille Paini and TroutHunter lodge we put together a fun Fish and Photo workshop on the famed Henry’s Fork River, a “what it takes to get it done in the field” so to speak. Ryan and Dennis were the lucky bidding winners and they showed up from Oregon with camera and fishing rods ready to go. We had some great light but battled tough fishing conditions and as always we made the best of times. The last day the fellas were rewarded with some great fishing and big fish, a bonus! We touched on the basics of photography but more so the technical little tricks and tips to get the shot. We nailed some great imagery and iconic enough, a few images that day have been selected to see print. A big thanks Ryan and Dennis and to Rich and Mille at TroutHunter and all the guides and staff, it was a great fundraiser for a great cause.
