Anything better than watching your big foamy bug bounce down the bank, spin around hanging branches, graze the tips of leaning blades of grass and occasionally finding it’s way into the lion’s den? #biggulps

One of the best hatches I’ve seen in a long time. The banks looked like they were smoking.. Typically for us, when the caddis(brachycentrus) are this thick the river is high and blown out. Not this year⚡️

No lens will capture how truly special a fishery @piralodge has to offer but with the help of an amazing guide crew we did our best. Check out @christiaanpretorius short film on our adventure through the 3,000,000 acres of this unspoiled corner of the world. The Ibera Marshland is almost completely unexplored and uninhabited. It is home to more than 350 species of birds, 85 mammals and almost 70 reptiles, apart from an incredible abundance of flora. By far one of the most beautiful places I’ve been fortunate enough to cast a fly! Follow link in bio for full length.

• Anglers, Friends, and Followers •

As many of you know, last October I went on a fishing trip to Wyoming with some friends following the conclusion of my guide season in Crested Butte.  This trip has become the subject of much negative media attention due to some very careless actions of mine on this ill fated getaway. Out of haste and enthusiasm to get on the water and fish, I made the mistake of not stopping to buy a Wyoming fishing license. Further, I did not familiarize myself with the local rules and regulations for the particular river we were fishing and as a result I received multiple citations from a local fish and wildlife officer which were respectfully paid immediately.  This has become a very high profile story among the fly fishing community.  My personal character as a person as well as my code of ethics as a professional fishing guide and angler have rightfully come into question following the events of that day.
I am the first to admit I had a very careless lapse in judgement, and that has led to some very severe consequences.  As a professional fishing guide, I know the importance of setting a high standard when it comes to adhering to the law.  Those who know me can attest to my ethics on the water and my sense of honor as a person.  I have never made any excuses for my behavior last October other than to defend some of the falsehoods that have gone viral on the internet. I hope that those who know me as a person of high class and moral character will not formulate a new negative opinion about me or the brands that I am affiliated with.  To that end, I am here now to humbly say I am sorry to all those effected by this uncharacteristic and singular case of poor judgement.
My sincerest apologies go out to the local guides and community in Wyoming, my friends, my clients, and associates in the fly fishing industry who have supported me and given me an opportunity to make a living the way I have enjoyed for many years.  I also want to specifically thank all of you who have reached out in support and encouragement; those who know and believe in me, my principles and my fishing ethics and have stood by me during this lousy time.

Big water, big bugs, big dries, big fish and my favorite... big hook sets. Summer is close my friends.

Flip Pallot said it best “Bonds transcend in a skiff.” Had an awesome time fishing and traveling this winter with this dude @christiaanpretorius. We only get so much time in this life so spend it well! Christian and his fiancé @lindiblaauw are world travelers, hard workers, stewards of awesomeness and all around good peeps, definitely give them a follow. Until next time my friends✌🏽

Boats out of storage and now I’m ready for it.. tired arms, blistered hands, sore back and after work evening sessions with my boys. You bring the beer, I’ll keep rowing.. @gunnyflyguy @wilder_eli @bfurminator

Picture yourself waking up in the remote Russian Far East at the base of the Karimsky Valcano over looking the Zhupanova River, possibly the best wild Rainbow Trout fishery in the world. Your day starts with a ride on an Alaskan style jet-boat to one of three 8 mile long beats where you spend the day fishing mouse flies and streamers to the worlds biggest Rainbows. After landing a fish, if not several that average in the 25" range and are common in the 30-35" range you take a lunch break to enjoy freshly caught Dolly Vardin cooked riverside over an open fire. To cap off a long day of incredible fishing you return to Zendzur Lodge for dinner,
and a relaxing soak in the hot spring while trading fish stories, and sipping on a cold Russian home-brewed beer. Sounds like a bucket list right?! I am very excited to announce that I will be hosting 6 anglers to the famed and remote destination of the Zhupanova River August 12th - 20th. This world class destination is home to MONSTER wild rainbow trout, sea run Kundzha(white spotted char), Dolly Varden and Silver Salmon. This is a small group and spots will fill quickly. If you have any interest and would like more information on this trip of lifetime please let me know.
