The Spirit Of Flyfishing Exhibit—a joint photography show by Ken Takata, Chris Daniel and me—opened at the West Yellowstone Public Library on August 9th. It hangs through October of this year. I’ve had a number of requests to put my part of the exhibit online, for all the folks that can’t make it to West Yellowstone before the show ends. I’m happy to comply, with the caveat that viewing images on-screen is a far cry from looking at prints first hand. If you can make it to the show, I think you’ll see the difference. Here are a few shots of the opening reception, taken by librarian Steve Takata and posted here with his permission. My photographs will follow in ensuing posts. (Click photos to enlarge.)

The opening was well attended by locals, visitors, anglers and non-anglers. Seemed to me that everyone had a good time.
