The winter time is one of my favorite times to fish. The fishing is good and many of my guide friends have some time off. During the busy summers I rarely get a chance to fish with my friends as they are working around the clock trying to get the most of out of a limited guide season. So winter is often a time when I am able to go fishing with my friends. I linked up with my friend Pat Gaffney, we had a great day of catching up and catching fish and we managed to make a few photos too. Here Pat is getting ready to release a healthy Henry’s Fork rainbow back into the winter river.
I’ve been fortunate to meet and photograph people from all different walks of life. Portraiture is not my strong suit but I enjoy attempting to capture people in their free unaltered moments.

COVER | FLYFISHING & TYING JOURNAL Spring 2015 issue | Island park, Idaho
The new spring issue of the Flyfishing & Tying Journal hit the newsstands a few weeks ago. I’m excited to see my image landed on the cover! This was a great surprise, it wasn’t expected.
The cover image is of TroutHunter guide Pat Gaffney. Randomly had a day off and we took advantage of the late spring hatch on the Henry’s Fork River. Also included is a photo essay on the Henry’s Fork Salmonfly hatch. I was fortunate to be able to get on the water with some top guides, who just so happen to be my friends. Images include: Brandon Prince, Phil Sgamma, Brad Miller and Carlos Chaves.
