I have a feature story in the new issue of The FlyFish Journal. I wrote the piece along with doing the photography. The story is on South Island, Kiwi guide, Scott Murray, who I had the pleasure of spending a bunch of time with last March in Murchison, New Zealand at his beautiful lodge, River Haven, that he co-owns and operates with his wife Leya.
First, the South Island blew me away and the icing on the cake was getting to spend many consecutive days on the water with Scott. He's a passionate, skilled and great guide to spend a day with (or more).
My last day with Scott was actually a day off for him and my deal with him was that he fishes, not me, and we could go to any river of his choosing. In other words, I was fortunate enough to hang with him on his day off on the water. He's got a witty sense of humor and from the time spent driving in the left lane to the time on the water and even time spent at the breakfast table with his monster load of toast, he's a guide who I truly admire and respect. He's a hard working and genuine person.
I'll be hosting a trip back to River Haven Lodge in January of 2017 (that's two January's from now). Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org for info.
