If you're only going to sting one, make it a good one.
Thanks to Patrick Rhea for snapping this photo of my first redfish on the fly.

Firsts are cool, no matter the size!

Trout grow large in a system rich in Salmon protein.
The Devil Inside.
Right out the backyard.

Tough to come by except for those who know. Fish that see dont see flies year round, are pretty easy to persuade into a meeting.
Canoe Tow Hitch
When you see this face over and over, life is pretty good.
"Things are terrifying in this world"
Nature is constantly blowing our minds!

Coolest "trout" out there.
Sex in the Dungeon

The River is open.
Floods really had a lot of people worried last year on the bow river. There's still plenty of fish to be found!

Bass Pro Shops occasionally lets us put our boat in their tanks. They grow pretty big in there.
The resiliency of these fish, to survive in high alkalinity, is what makes them so special.
We catch a lot of these. No one needs multiple pictures of sub par bull trout.

Most people would be shocked that we rarely stop for pictures of fish like this.
