I was certainly happy to get the call to head to Southeast Alaska this past spring. This remote temperate rainforest is a place of adventure, wonder and some of the best wild steelhead fishing around. The weather, the climate, the tides, the terrain and just trying to get there also makes it one of the most vigorous angling exploits imaginable, the temperate rainforest is not for the faint of heart. However, besides the constant uphill battle, this is also one of the most thrilling adventures a fly angler can have! It was a fun week of crab, prawns, and steelhead. I can’t wait to return.

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?
I’m always thrilled to see my images in print, no matter how big or how small or the location where it’s placed. It’s just really nice to hold an actually printed photograph. I had an image squeak into the new issue of American Angler May/June 2016 issue. It’s an opening image for the feature article, “Supersize”. Fitting as this image was taken with my friend Rick Matney who certainly likes to catch super sized fish.

AURORA BOREALIS | WRANGELL, ALASKA Northerns Lights, AK
As random luck would have it, I was able to snag a scramble image of the northern lights here in Alaska. I feel very fortunate to be able to see them and very lucky to be able to fire off a few images before it disappeared.

Things can get really busy when shooting in the field, and sometimes you get tunnel vision and miss the amazing little things that nature offers.
