The new issue of The Drake Magazine is on the rack. It’s always nice to see your work in print. It takes a team effort to make these images come to life. A big thank you to all those anglers and people involved in the process… and to the print magazines who still hold credible journalism in high regard.

The 2021 Expeditions & Guides Annual of Gray’s Sporting Journal is now available. I am thrilled to have a photo essay in this issue.
This essay is a series of images taken in the Yucatan. I’ve traveled around Yucatan Mexico with a camera and a fly rod for many years. More often than not it’s with my good friend Shaun Lawson. Over the years we’ve had quite the adventures. Good fishing, bad fishing, good weather, bad weather, and a few blown-out flip-flops – it’s always quite the adventure to find a size “grande gringo”. We’ve had some camera mishaps, a few parasite issues, a lot of tacos, and met a lot of incredible people. Every trip was always a great trip, the fishing was just a bonus.
Big thanks to all guides for working hard to help us get into fish and of course, help with getting the images. It’s a team effort.
This issue is packed with great articles and some impressive photo essays, it’s not one to be missed.
Be sure to head down to your local shop and grab yourself a copy or better yet, order a subscription, you won’t be disappointed.
TWO GRAND SLAMS IN TWO DAYS Bonefish + Permit + Tarpon x 2
BGP member Will Phelps put together a quick personal edit while on a content gathering assignment in Belize.
It’s not unheard of, but two grand slams in two days is a rarity! “We never expected it to be this good. On the last two days of our trip to Belize, it all came together. The calm and sunny conditions were perfect for flats fishing. Thanks to our incredible guides, Lincoln Westby and Marvin Leslie, two grand slams were boated. Luck was on our side, and angler Damien Nurre got it done”.
Check out the edit.

And that’s a wrap! We just finished the last scenes for the new film project premiering in 2017 with the Fly Fishing Film Tour and we all couldn’t be more pleased. The filming and interviews are completed and our editors, writers and music engineers are putting their final touches on to the project. A big thanks to the man with a giant heart, “Sandflea”! We are all going to miss Mrs. Sandflea’s home cooking! And a huge thanks to all those who opened their door to the production team, we miss certainly Mexico already.

EDITORIAL | THE FLYFISH JOURNAL 7.1 Published Editorial
I’m always very excited to see images on on actual paper. There’s no substitute for holding a magazine and turning the pages. I’m thrilled to see these images made it to the final cut. They bring back such great memories. A big thanks to those that help make these images possible – anglers, sponsors and lodges – without you these images wouldn’t be possible.
It’s a humbling experience to see your work in print. The studying, the tinkering, the leaning, the support, and all the mistakes finally come together for one complex click of a button. I couldn’t be more pleased to see my imagery of my friends Millie and Oggy in retail stores. The shop pictured here is Emerald Water Anglers in Washington. If you’re ever in the Seattle area be sure to swing into this amazing one of a kind shop! Thanks for sending in the great pic Catie!
