Spring Floating on the Smith River in central Montana

Spring Floating on the Smith River in central Montana

A few weeks ago I accompanied some Ski Patrol friends on a week fly fishing float trip down the infamous Smith River in Central Montana and managed to photograph a little bit along the way. The last time I floated it was over ten years ago when I was fresh out of college. Now a […]


Fly fishing Mongolia – On the River with Mongolia River Outfitters – Part One

Fly fishing Mongolia – On the River with Mongolia River Outfitters - Part One

As we stood at the Ulaanbaatar airport counter in the early morning, prior to our flight out to the Mongolian steppes, we were told that between eight anglers we would be limited to a total gear weight of 60 kilos between us. Things suddenly got interesting. This was news to us. Frantic to make our flight on […]


Fly fishing Mongolia – The Adventure begins

Fly fishing Mongolia – The Adventure begins

In the Fall of 2015, as I was floating and fly fishing on the Madison River outside Bozeman, Montana with my fishing guide friend Mike Mansfield and the topic of an international fly fishing trip arose. It seemed like a no brainer idea. As we casted for brown trout that day on our home river, dreaming […]


Fall Fly Fishing in Yellowstone National Park

Fall Fly Fishing in Yellowstone National Park

Fall in Montana and Wyoming has been exceptionally pretty this year. Perhaps it’s the small amount of rainstorms that have allowed the colors to linger on the trees longer. It might just be my favorite time of year. I’ve been venturing over into Yellowstone National Park on my days off with intentions of finding spawning brown trout. […]

I’ve been wanting to share this post for months now. With permission from the Flyfish Journal, I wanted to reprint the article they recently featured on me and my fly fishing photography. Here is the story my friend Ryan Peterson wrote about me. What an honor to be featured in such a beautifully designed nationally […]


The Weekend Fish Mission on the Madison and Yellowstone River

The Weekend Fish Mission on the Madison and Yellowstone River

I’ve been in Montana for a little over a year now after moving here from California. While the normal routine in the past was for me was to always bring a camera out on my fly fishing missions, for 2012, I decided to take a break. I’ve stayed pretty busy at the newspaper throughout the […]

Steelhead Fly Fishing on the Eel River and Redwood Creek in Northern California

My mini vacation/moving road trip has come to an end. Tomorrow I start my new job as a staff photojournalist at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle newspaper in Bozeman, Montana. As I was leaving California, I managed to squeeze in one last steelhead fly fishing trip with my buddies Kara, Allison and Ryan for a two […]


Winter Steelhead Fishing on the Rogue River in Southern Oregon

Winter Steelhead Fishing on the Rogue River in Southern Oregon

It’s never too cold to fish. Back in December I headed up north for another weekend steelhead mission with my friends Ryan and Rich. I am not a morning person but when there is an opportunity to float on the Rogue River, I somehow find the motivation. Coffee helps. We left Ryan’s house early in […]


Steelhead Fly Fishing on the Trinity River in Northern California

Steelhead Fly Fishing on the Trinity River in Northern California

Back in November the urge to get out on the water over came me. In the last six years of living living here, I’ve come to really love winter steelhead fishing in northern California. Especially on the swing. I feel fortunate that some of my good friends share the same passion. This trip was my […]


Fly Fishing for Coho Salmon on Kodiak Island, Alaska

Fly Fishing for Coho Salmon on Kodiak Island, Alaska

Holy moly! I’m a bit backed up with my blog posts. I’ve been meaning to post this one for a while now.  A couple months back I got an invite from my friend Allison to join her on a trip up to Alaska for a week of fly fishing for the coho salmon run on […]


Bushwhacking to the Klamath River

Bushwhacking to the Klamath River

Last weekend I headed up north to the Klamath River with my buddy Ryan Peterson and his friend Scott Tucker in search of winter steelhead. I’ve been to this river a lot. With the lack of rain throughout northern California the last couple of weeks, the Klamath offered the best river conditions out of any […]

After a grueling summer long hiatus from fly fishing, I finally remedied the situation. Last weekend I met up with my good buddy Ryan Peterson of The Fly Shop and The Big Pull for a weekend fishing for steelhead along the banks of the Klamath River in Northern California. I spent most of my time […]

I checked the mail the other day to find that the newest edition of The Flyfish Journal issue #3 has been published. It’s exciting because I had another one of my photographs published as a double truck in the opening spreads. I’ve been with these guys from the beginning and I am anxious to see […]


Back in the Saddle – Flyfishing the Lower Sacramento River

Back in the Saddle - Flyfishing the Lower Sacramento River

Photo of me by Matt Payne I’m almost embarrassed to admit it but I haven’t been fly fishing since last November. It has been a constant annoyance for me not being able get out and fish. It’s funny how quickly prior commitments build up and begin to consume so much of your time. I was […]


Steelheading on the Klamath River

Steelheading on the Klamath River

I just got back from a weekend fishing the Klamath River with my buddy Ryan Peterson, travel specialist at The Fly Shop. It was just gorgeous this time of year. The fall colors were really popping. I recently purchased a new Profoto AcuteB 600R power pack and lamp head and decided to test them out […]


California Reconnaissance

California Reconnaissance

Ever since landing my job in Fairfield, California I have been hard pressed to get the time to go fly fishing. Regardless of the direction I could head, it would be a solid 2-3 hour drive to get to some decent trout streams. And with that knowledge, there always seemed to be something else occupying […]
