Published_Catch Magazine Issue #6

WOW.. what a crazy start to summer so far!!!!

So..... I somehow made it into Catch Magazine. Not only did I barely make the submission deadline, but my image was placed as the opening for the "Hard Light" series. HUMBLING!!! It's still such a surreal experience, a shocking dream come true really. I mean whoever thought I'd be exchange emails with one of the best fishing photographers out there, I know I certainly didn't.What a great experience.

The first images is from an awesome memorable experience. Corey Kruitbosch and I were shown the ropes by host extraordinaire Aaron Otto. During this moment Captain A was at the helm, Cor was kind enough to let me try out his lens..... and low and behold, these two kind gestures turned out to be something special..

The second is of Chris Barkey on the Teton River. I climbed the sharp rocks lined with rattlers to get a birds eye view. I looked down river to see Chris moving alone, fishing in solitude. The sun was perfectly lining up for the shot. I remember repeating over and over in my head, a little further, just a little further. Chris fished methodically covering every stick of the flow. Finally he was in position and I fired away. He couldn't see me and nor did he know I was een up there. It was a cool moment when everything lined up. Patients was the answer and I luckily stuck to me guns and enjoyed the view until the timing was right.

Without these individuals these images would never have been captured. As much as its the guy with the camera, its also the guys the camera is surrounded by. Thanks guys!!

The guys over at Catch are have a stellar operation going on. Their style is fresh, interesting, ori
ginal and very much cool. I've been inspired to keep learning, to keep trying and most importantly to keep having fun. If you haven't checked out them out yet go do it
