Flyfishing is my first love! We practice what I refer to as an enhanced Catch & Release method also known as “CPR”… Catch, Photo, Release!

These are just some of the thousands of flyfishing pictures that I have taken over the years from one of my favorite places on earth - the Rockies in Western, MT. There is an abundance of wildlife, a slower paced lifestyle, and some of the most incredible trout fishing any where on the planet.

Gorgeous Wild Cutthroat/Rainbow Hybrid.

The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Start 'em while they're young!

Springtime in the Rockies! You never know what kind of weather you'll get.

This was taken just days after the previous shot. You might need to enlarge this one in order to catch the detail of her tying on a fresh fly in the reflection of her sunglasses.

Flyfisher's early season dream - the March Brown.

Another early season trout favorite! The Salmonfly!!!!

Bull Trout. This native Montanan is on the government's Species of Special Concern list. It has been decimated in a great deal of its historical range.

Chicks dig the brown tout! I love this unique perspective. Check out the red spots on the adipose fin.

      These are spectacular. I've done some fly fishing in my time, but nearly enough. I haven't been fishing at all in almost two years, which I'm pretty sure is a mortal sin. I'm spending the next week in Arizona, and I think there may be some fly fishing in my future.

      #9 could easily be the cover for Field and Stream.

      These should be in a fishing/hunting magazine. I really mean that!
