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?
About the Image: A blustery winters day might seen insignificant to non-anglers, however, in countless areas such as the Henry’s Fork River it can cause quite a stir amongst the fish relishing a healthy hatch.

ORVIS | ADVERTISMENTS Tiger Musky photo shoot in Utah
I spend a week fishing and shooting in Utah. The target specie was Tiger Musky, a mutant breed: Muskelunge x Northern Pike + test tube = Tiger Musky. These ferocious toothy fish are a blast to fish for. Over the years I’ve targeted a few areas using various methods. These are a fun fish to catch and you can use so many different types of methods to catch them. This particular trip we targeted them on the surface using patterns tied by none other than Brent Dawson of Warpath flies. Brent is a master tier and his specialty is large technical flies. No wonder anglers like Jeff Currier and Mikey Weir and travel companies such as Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures use his flies globally. Tested and approved. If you need flies give Brent a ring, you wont be disappointed.
