Chasing Smallmouth and SUPs on the John Day

Fishing photography 101: learn to work at unusual desks.

It’s been a whirlwind of a month so far. I kicked off July with a trip with Mia and Marty Sheppard of Oregon’s Little Creek Outfitters, tackling a rather mellow multi-day float trip on the John Day River. Three days spent photographing gorgeous scenery, bountiful bass and laughing anglers while riding up stand-up paddleboard down the river was a good way to kick off the month! The “real” images are off to several magazine editors (these are iPhone shots in the post) — stay tuned for those stories!

(And who knew SUPs were such awesome mobile photography studios?!)

After the Oregon trip, I flew back to Bozeman for a few days before heading south to Orlando for the International Fly Tackle Dealer Show. I always love this show — it’s an awesome week of business, catching up with old friends, making new ones, and just generally a solid reminder of why we do what we do. Thanks to everyone who took the time to meet!

There are some very interesting projects underway… the rest of 2017 (and beyond) is going to be a wild ride.

The basics. Give me a fly rod, cameras and water and I’m happy.

Best place to crash after a long day on the water.
