SEA SERPENT | GREEN MORAY EEL
Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Belize

Hol Chan is also the habitat of a large moray eel population. With 5 different morays, the Green Moray is the largest specie of Moray eels. It’s been said the green moray is not green in color it’s actually brown. The yellow tint of the mucus that covers its body, along with the drab background color, gives the fish its characteristic uniform green color.

CUBA | HOW ABOUT A HAM SANDWICH & JACK, SAY CHEESE

CUBA | HOW ABOUT A HAM SANDWICH AND JACK, SAY CHEESE
Jardines de la Reina, Cayo Largo, Havana | Cuba

Oh Cuba… what can I say about a place that Hemingway didn’t already say? A Ham sandwich, betcaha Hemingway didn’t mention a ham sandwich.  oh wait, he did. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, a ham sandwich is always an appropriate food in Cuba. That and a few more other odd things like funny money, cool old cars, ancient churches, talented artists and willing jacks can be found at any given time here! Did I mention the jacks crush Warpath crease flies on the surface?! Yes, yes, they do!

“It was considered a virtue not to talk unnecessarily at sea…”
― Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea

It was a thrilling few weeks in Cuba…now I’m repacking, headed to South America next week.

THE SACRIFICE OF A KING

KING SALMON | NUSHAGAK RIVER, ALASKA
Protect Bristol Bay Alaska

Chinook Salmon (or King Salmon) in full colors is a beautiful sight to see. These fish have only one job: to travel back to spawn and to die. They unselfishly and willingly give up their life so the next generations can survive and the ecosystem can utilize its decaying body to gain nutrients. The cycle of life, it is so fragile.

2015 LAS PAMPAS LODGE CATALOG | ARGENTINA

NEW 2015 LAS PAMPAS LODGE CATALOG IS HOT OFF THE PRESS!
Published, Commercial Catalog 

This is one of my favorite shoots that I look forward to every year. The fishing is great, the scenery is superb and the local people are the salt of the Earth. It’s the people that bring me back year after year. The culture, spirit and tradition of the old world are still alive and well.

Ol’ Henry got it right, but I’ve already knew it since a kid …. “Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.” … But sometimes I get too busy and forget, that is until I visit the quieter parts of the World, where time stops and Mother Nature roams free.
