I am a fisherman and photographer living in West Yellowstone, Montana. For twenty-some years I was a partner in Blue Ribbon Flies, a local specialty fly fishing shop. I currently spend my time fishing and photographing, but can still be found in the shop on a part-time basis during the summer months.
I began flyfishing in 1969, a time when bamboo and fiberglass were battling it out for world supremacy. My early fishing years were spent pursuing bluegills, bass and crappie in the Midwest, with yearly trips to fish for trout in Colorado (and later, Yellowstone Park). After earning a degree in Fisheries Biology from the University of Wyoming, I worked for several years on environmental issues with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department before moving to Montana. Along with fish and fishing, photography has long been an interest of mine.
My pictures can be seen in magazines and catalogs, on websites, and in galleries. I’m the author of Yellowstone: Photographs of an Angling Landscape, and the co-author (with Craig Mathews) of Fly Patterns of Yellowstone, Fishing Yellowstone Hatches, and Fly Patterns of Yellowstone, Volume Two. You can read my writing by looking under the “articles” section of this site, and also by visiting my blog.
