CATALOG COVER | DECEMBER 2018 Pink Salmon tail, Alaska
It’s always a special day to open the mailbox and see your image on the cover of a manufacturing catalog. This image is from a great trip to Alaska with a good fishing buddy, Tom Melvin. The moment I saw the light and the tail I knew I had something to work with. Pink Salmon are such amazing fish, I can’t wait to get back to photograph them again.

A few new Hatch Outdoors Ads have been surfacing this spring season, its always great to see the fruits of our labor seeing the light of day.
These images always take a team effort, these two here were helped created with global guide Gabriel Gygax in Xcalak Mexico in the first photo and Tom Melvin of Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures in Caye Caulker Belize in the second image. Big thanks to all the anglers, manufacture, lodges, staff, guides, logistics agents, etc, who helped with the process, these images wouldn’t be created without your help and continued support. + Hatch Outdoors: http://www.hatchoutdoors.com/
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.
For more on the trip and to book your trip be sure to check out the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures trip report on the blog and the link to the complete stock image archives.
The new 2016 Hatch Angler’s Annual is hot off the press and is looking better than ever. A huge thanks to all those that help make these images possible: friends, family, fellow photogs, guides, anglers, staff, transfer agents, translators, editors, pilots and taxi cab drivers. It really does take a great team to create great imagery and great content.
