2022 ANGLING TRAVEL GUIDE | YELLOW DOG FLYFISHING ADVENTURES

THE YELLOW DOG DIFFERENCE
Fly Fish The World // Zero Extra Cost

It’s wild to think this is my 9th catalog with Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures. When I look back and think about all the adventures over the years, it just feels, well, unbelievable. I am very fortunate to work for such a great company, with an incredible team, and long-lasting global friends.

It’s also really nice to work for a company that gives back to the very communities we work in. YDFA created The Yellow Dog Community and Conservation Foundation (YDCCF) in 2016 as a means of providing direct support to communities, fisheries, and ecosystems where great angling is found. In the first five years, YDCCF has granted over $1 million to over 60 projects worldwide, funding projects both large and small that focus on conservation, education and community growth, and resilience.

We are always thrilled to work with our good friends at Patagonia. When they reached out needing a shoot with four products that required four different looks in two and a half days, we were happy to step up. It always takes a lot of effort from a lot of people to make these projects happen. Big thanks to our friends at TroutHunter Lodge in Island Park, Idaho, for the continued support.

NEXGEN | FULL-LENGTH FEATURE NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON

NEXGEN, MOVIE
Off the Grid Studios

Off the Grid Studios is pleased to announce the release of the full-length cut of their film “NEXGEN.” Available now on Amazon channel

In “NexGen,” filmmaker RA Beattie tells the story of generational bonds and friendships formed through fly fishing. In the film, Beattie offers a new perspective, as the film is told from the point of view and with the narration of Jack Buccola — a 12-year-old angler from Bend, Oregon. The film follows Jack as he experiences living in a fly fisherman’s house, witnesses the impact of fires on his home waters, and explores new waters on a road trip with his father Ryan, friend Judd Field, and Judd’s father Pete. Throughout the journey, Jack grows to appreciate the steelhead of the Northwest, the native cutthroat trout found on the South Fork of the Snake River and other tributaries, and Jack also realizes the potential for more travel with a tying business.

“NexGen” was directed, edited, and produced by RA Beattie, produced and filmed by Bryan Gregson, written by Sarah Grigg and Tim Harden, filmed and edited by Will Phelps, and audio engineered by Troy Hermes, with still photography from Arian Stevens. Marko Milosevic contributed the graphics.

This project was a tremendous amount of work but was equally gratifying. It would not be possible without the teamwork from such an outstanding group of dedicated people. With support from the Orvis Company, Scientific Anglers, and WorldCast Anglers, the latest from Off the Grid Studios premiered on the 2019 Fly Fishing Film Tour. Thank you all for lending your dedication, creativity, and passion. Here’s to the next round!

2020 CATALOG | THOMAS & THOMAS FLY RODS

BRANDON PRINCE + CAMILLE EGDORF
Rocky Mountains 

We were commissioned by Thomas & Thomas Fly Rod Company to create a few portraits fly fishing for marketing advertisements. The idea of the image was to showcase a Western fly fishing theme.

I had the fortunate opportunity to work with Brandon Prince and his daughter this past summer. Brandon is a Western Rocky Mountain Thomas & Thomas rep. He is also a long-time close friend, we’ve known each other for over two decades. Fun fact, at one time Brandon and I were roommates on the famous Henry’s Fork River in Idaho. I remember when his daughter was born and how excited he was to have a new fishing buddy. It was really special to see them fishing together years later. She is just as into is as her father is. I guess the old saying of “like father, like daughter” is fitting. I am looking forward to seeing what the future has planned for this amazing father and daughter duo.

Off the Grid Studios is pleased to announce a new film — “NexGen.” With support from the Orvis Company, Scientific Anglers, and WorldCast Anglers, the latest from Off the Grid Studios will premiere on the 2019 Fly Fishing Film Tour.

In “NexGen,” filmmaker RA Beattie tells the story of generational bonds and friendships formed through fly fishing.

“Our 2019 production ‘NexGen’ takes viewers along for a ride on a more attainable, grassroots adventure here at home in the American West,” explains Beattie. “I’m very proud of our entire team and excited to bring the young cast, epic eats, and stunning nature scenes to the big screen in theaters around the world.”

YELLOW DOG FLYFISHING + PHOTO WORKSHOPS 2017


FLY FISHING PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS 2017
FISH . PHOTO . TRAVEL
Belize, Idaho, Cuba


Join Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures for a hands-on, adventure-filled outdoor and fishing photography workshop in 2017. We have a great line-up of instructors this year, making it a great opportunity to travel with us to Belize, Idaho or Cuba! This immersive workshop will be led by our highly accomplished team of adventure angling photographers. The school includes daily classes, in-the-field instruction, field trips, and all lodging and meals!

The idea for the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures on-the-water photo workshop was to create a hands on workshop that is taught by working professionals who specialize in adventure angling. We constructed a learning experience built around real time scenarios. Let’s face it: the light is rarely perfect when you finally catch the fish of a lifetime or finally take that once in a lifetime trip. Everyone wants to come home with those special moments. With this in mind, we created a curriculum that provides you with the necessary tools to create great images! The detailed instructional lesson plan is directly applied from the classroom into the field. Each participant has the help of an instructor with almost every shot. It’s a great educational experience for all levels.

Who Should Attend:
Everyone! Whether you just purchased your first camera and are wondering what all those buttons are for or you’re a seasoned amateur to intermediate photographer wanting to make the most of your fishing and travel photography, this workshop will advance your skill level and improve your photos in the field. With three working professional photographers instructing, we’re able (and happy) to teach and accommodate photographers of any skill level. The diversity of instruction and a curriculum designed specifically for outdoor, travel and fishing photography, this workshop will help you to “up your game” and make the most of your future fishing trips.
