Excited to again land a short piece in the Notes, News & Reviews section of the January/February 2011 issue of Southwest Fly Fishing Magazine. Check it out if you get a chance.
Also if you pick up the issue, check out the stunning photography on the cover (front, back and a nice spread inside) from my friend Brian Gregson.
I am once again humbled to have an image published, this time in the new issue of Catch Magazine!
Here is the photo, among a collection of photos on my second favorite subject – BEER!
and a quick look at the credits
Once again I am sharing space with some of the most talented photographers in the business! If you haven’t already, take a quick spin through the magazine, there are some amazing photos.
Some times it rains. I am excited to be introduced as the latest addition to Midcurrent’s line of fly fishing photographers in their weekly newsletter.

Solis on the Salt co-owner (and namesake) Jeff Solis has a new article about fishing for the mighty Corbina in the new issue of California Fly Fisher just in time for summer. I am stoked to have another image published in the same article. Here is a scan of the first page:
To find out why we like to fish “happy fish” head down to your local fly shop (assuming you are in CA) and get your copy!
I am stoked to get my first cover shot on the November/December issue of Southwest Fly Fishing. This was one of my goals for the year and I just got it in. The photo was taken on a small unnamed creek just outside of St. George, Utah. Check it out:
Like most images, this one has a story to go with it.
Upon being informed by my wife Shannon that we would be attending my niece’s high school graduation in Utah I quickly sent off an email to my buddy Corey Kruitbosch for up to date fishing information about the St. George area. Corey didn’t know much about the area but hooked me up with a “internet” friend of his named Matt who lived in the St. George area. Matt and I traded a few emails and a plan was hatched to fish below some slot canyons in the area on Saturday.
As Saturday arrived it became apparent that my wife, as well as the rest of my in-laws who were in town for the graduation, were becoming increasingly suspicious / amused by the fact that I was going to be picked up at the hotel by a guy I had never met and had only conversed with over the internet. I assured them that my “internet” friends were not serial killers and that in fact all of them thus far had be genuinely quality people. Nevertheless, when Matt pulled up in front of the hotel he was met not only by me and my fishing gear, but my wife and sister-in-law also stepped out to get a look at Matt and write down his license plate number.
Turns out Matt was a really nice guy with a wife and young daughter at home. It also turned out that Matt had an epic fishing spot that was full of colored up Bonneville Cutthroats to share, with one caveat – that I not share its location. Here are a few of the other photos:
Matt, thanks again for sharing. I will gladly repay the favor in the So Cal surf this summer.
Just received the September/October copy of Southwest Fly Fishing which includes an article (and photos) that I penned about fly fishing Mission Beach, California.
The magazine is not available online (yet), but you can order them here, or find them in most bookstores. The article also features a few photos of local “sticks” Steve Piper and Matt Hale doing what they do best. Here is a scan of the article lead, you think they could have found a better looking model.
