Ryan Schmidt, pictured below, releases a nice Faraway Cayes bonefish. The flats out there extend for miles and miles. Ryan, a Colorado fly fishing guide, was the chef out at Faraway Cay last year while I was there. He was always game to get out on the water and I’m excited to have this image of him on the cover.

My good friend, Val Atkinson, is hosting a trip to the Palometa Club this March. It’s a fantastic opportunity to not only have fun and fish the flats for permit and bonefish, among other fish, but to also spend time with a true legend in the fly fishing world. Val has spent a lifetime exploring the world behind his lens. He’s a kind and sincere person and full of great stories and is just an all around great person to spend time with. The long and short of it… check out the details below and email Val with questions / inquiries: email@example.com
This is, unfortunately, not a trip I will be on (I’ll be in New Zealand).
It’s time to think about prints!

Excited to have a two page image in the new, issue 10.1, of The FlyFish Journal. It’s their 10th Anniversary issue. Check it out!
Below, Kendall Witt is hooked up to a bonefish on a full moon night just feet from Faraway Cay, Honduras last March. I know it took a lot of work, replete with ups and downs, for Steve Brown, owner of Fly Fish Guanaja, to set up the heli operation at Faraway Cay. It’s a special place and I feel really fortunate to have had the chance to experience Faraway. Hats off, to you, Steve.

About a week ago, I received a WhatsApp call from Leonardo. Out of the blue. Assumed I had made no great impression on him when, earlier in the summer I had stopped along Trail Creek Road to get a few images of him. I had sent him the shots via WhatsApp. He asked me to come out and visit his new, albeit short term, location near Hailey. I brought a few beers and we talked for an hour or so about his nomadic life here in the States and his family back in Peru.
Cold. Some sun. Rain and snow too. Saturated trees and sky. October.
Here’s a recent panorama of the Lost River Range (Idaho’s tallest mountains).
Snow up high. Saturated river bottoms; cottonwood leaves holding on to one last bright gasp before dropping. A deeper-blue sky. Greater shadows. Skittish mule deer.
It’s starting to look and feel like fall. In fact, tomorrow, September 21st will be the first day of fall. Cool mornings and beautiful sunny days in the upper 60’s to low 70’s are on the horizon.
Fall color and Kokanee Salmon.
