NORTHWEST FLY FISHING MAG | EXPOSURE GALLERY

SALMONFLY EXTRAVAGANZA
May/June 2017

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.

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.

OSPREY PORTRAIT | MACRO LENS

OZZIE THE BOX CANYON OSPREY
Idaho Osprey Rescue

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.

Yucatan Critters

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.

DRAKE MAGAZINE | COVER SPRING 2013

DRAKE MAGAZINE COVER SHOT
Spring 2013 Issue

I’m very excited to see one of my images on the new Spring 2013 cover of the The Drake Magazine!! It’s been a great publication for many years, one that I eagerly look forward too as both a fisherman and photographer. For me its a humbling honor for any of my images to make into print ,and making the cover has always been a lifetime goal of mine.

This image below is of good friend ,and phenomenal angler, Millie Jo Paini fishing her beloved Henry’s Fork river. It was a great hatch that day and both Mille and husband Rich were out doing what they both love to do, “play the game ” (dry fly fishing) on the famous Railroad ranch section. There are a few other goodies inside from BGP, including a little somethin’ somethin’ by friends Johnny Pares and Rita Rose Adams on dry fly bonefish from a recent trip to Casa and Playa Blanca in the Yucatan. The shot was very challenging for many reasons. It didn’t come easy and we spend days trying to get it. After dozens of hook-ups and we finally managed to get a few that really show the fully open mouth of a Bonefish trying to eat from the surface. It was one of the most amazing fly fishing experiences I’ve seen. I know I won’t look at bonefish the same way ever again. Rounding out the issue is buddy Tom Watkins over at the good ol’ TroutHunter freezing on the pages in the spectrum section. Nothing like a brisk mid-winters day of fishing on the Henry’s Fork. Huge thanks all the anglers for doing what you do and letting me document it with my camera, without you these images and adventures would never happen.

This issue is action packed, lots of solid content from some of the most talented writers and photographers in the industry. So head down to your local fly shop and grab a copy today, or better yet, get a subscription!.. hell, snag a shirt too.
