Best of Fly Fish Addiction 2009

Another great year with FFA and yeah...we were a little fortunate with all of our days out on the water again this year. Between Boca Grande trips for Tarpon, chasing double digit bows in Alaska, redfishing in Clearwater/Homasassa, favorite waterways in Wyoming, hitting all of my favorite rocky mountain spots on the Pan, Taylor, Gunny, Colorado, Delaney/Antero etc... I could go on but let's just say most of the water in Colorado somewhat fell to my Addiction. Carp days always reach about 30 days so that is a given as well and don't forget a few Pike/Bass days thrown in the mix. Despite no Belize or Costa Rica as originally planned, I need to start saving now and see what 2010 brings me!
I hope the year brought you much joy also and I can't wait to hear from many of you about your trips and what's ahead. Feel free to meet up with us, Lord knows the Fellas and I are out every chance we get.

Trapper Rudd's Adventures in New Zealand

Trapper's At It Again!

I just got another email from Trapper Rudd again from one of his many Adventures. Looks like a great trip and definitely not a shortage of big browns down there. Between all of your Saltwater trips and far away reaches to NZ, it's hard to keep up with you! Can't wait to see more teasers and hopefully get you back for one of our Colorado trips with Stan and the boys -if you ever make it back that is~

Incredible Fly Fishing Photographers Finale!

Yes There's More!

Okay I thought I would finish out the week strong with a few more top photographers. With a few more on Freshwater and my personal vice, Saltwater.

Brian Yamauchi is a close friend of mine and I'm just happy to get out on the water with him any chance I get. Whether he's spending his weekends at a celebrity fly tying event, taking pictures for publications like Rick Takahashi's recent Modern Midge book, or fishing a favorite local Stillwater spot, he's always busy doing something fishing related. Congrats also on your "Rising Rainbow" picture being featured for the Fly Fishing Show billboard advertisements.

Just to look at his patterns makes you want to eat it, it just looks to good and if I throw that out you can be rest assured I'm going to catch a fish with it!


Matt Schliske has it all, insanely sweet custom Bamboo rods to appease any fly fisherman and incredible fly fishing pictures to go along with his talents. Matt is another Coloradan that stays busy whether out on the water, building impressive Bamboo rods, taking pictures that take your breath away, or being written up by industry sites such as Midcurrent and Thisisflydaily. I can't wait to catch up with Matt at the Fly Fishing shows this year to see what's next for him!

More Top Fly Fishing Photagraphers and Images!

Okay we've been talking about the Rockies a bunch, hit on some Saltwater, now it's time to take it back home to Georgia for a real perspective of photography with Louis Cahill. What many people don't know is that not only is Louis a great photographer while out on the water but he also does very impressive work in commercial advertising around the Atlanta, Georgia area shooting people and still life.

corey Kruitbosch
Here is another personal favorite and friend of mine. You may have seen Corey Kruitbosch in a number Publications, whether it's the recent spread in the Drake magazine, Korkers website or a Toyota ad (they did a little backpedaling when they forgot to ask him to use his stuff). He spends as much time on the water fishing in Utah as he does taking pictures, that's definitely a tough call since you can't really do both. It seems every time I'm either planning a big trip to places like Boca Grande or Alaska he beats me there and we're never are able to meet up, one day we'll hopefully hook up and I have a feeling next year we will wet a line for sure.


Still keeping with the talented guys in Utah, yes there are quite a few! In no way could we leave out the very talented Brett Colvin. Hmm you may have seen his recent work on the National Geographic website recently, as well as other publications. It seems I spend a bunch of time admiring his shots whether they're out on the water including fish pictures or waterfowl, it's pretty sweet stuff!
