We are thrilled to have an image accompanying an article about fly fishing in the Washington Post from author Chris Santella. The author heads to Idaho to fly fish on the famed Western water, the Henry’s Fork River with TroutHunter Lodge. Be sure to check out the article.
I’m delighted to see few of my images accompanied the Exposure Section of the current issue of Northwest Fly Fishing Magazine. It’s always a humbling honor to be amongst the other great photos and photographers on a photo gallery piece. Seems like it was just yesterday when I was photographing Brad Miller spinning up his favorite go to pattern in anticipation of the big bug hatch and fishing with my then roommate Brandon Prince, who was trying not to choke on a mouthful of salmonflies, because he was starving? Only a guide knows the feeling? Ha.
Head on down to your local shop and grab yourself a print copy or order a dual subscription and get it on your iPad, you won’t be disappointed and won’t ever miss an issue.
By chance I was in Last Chance Idaho at the TroutHunter Lodge and Milton Menasco & the Big Fiasco from Bozeman Montana were live on stage and rocking it. It was a great night on the Fork, hope to see these guys again!
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.

A portrait of “Ozzie” before he was taken to the Teton Raptor Center for wing and shoulder rehabilitation. I think this shows his personality well: a brave courageous bird with a will to live.
I’m happy he is flying once again back home in the Box Canyon of the Henry’s Fork River, Yellowstone country.
PUBLISHED FLYFUSION MOBI ISSUE 2014 Editorial Magazine
I’m pleased to a have Henry’s Fork River photo essay in the premier issue of Fly Fusion Magazine MOBI. Summer is just around the corner, can’t wait for opening day! Big thanks to the great folks at TroutHutner Lodge!
The first encounter with a Roseate Spoonbill I was truly amazed. Odd looking creatures, with a unique look, cool personality and full of vibrant color, and did I mention…they are 5 different colors of pink!! Maybe to those that see these daily there’s not much to lift an eyebrow over, but to this rocky mountain dude, it’s a rare and jaw-dropping day when you see a flock of pink birds, in mangroves. Ever encounter I have with them is still of wonder. They congregate close to us, watching our actions with curios eyes. One in our group commented on Labrador like characteristics and facial expressions. In a few minutes dozen appear to watch our angling show. Always feel lucky too see these magnificent animals, and I always wonder what they are thinking…. Nature is pretty dang cool. This is one of many images of Spoonbills from the trip to the middle of the Yucatan
Cool looking spiny-tail iguanas seemed to be lurking around everywhere in the Yucatan. I had a hard time getting in close at first, until the locals clued me in on a little trick. The trick seemed to work and I was able to get in tight on this feller while basking on a large piece of washed-up coral. I was fortunate and was able to capture a lot of wildlife imagery on this trip, birds, fish, lizards, sharks, tarpon trying to eat a bird rookery, and of course humans. I even ventured to the famous “Iguana Island” for lunch in ascension bay to see the lunch pets, and make a cast…I never knew Iguanas loved jalapeños.
