The hills move from rolling to rugged quickly and the land bares big animals and fast little ones. Wide open spaces and big skies make this place feel like summer vacations when I was little, visiting my grandparent...Read More

IMG_6722Have you seen the feature fly fishing documentary Low & Clear? If so, you'll know exactly why it was hailed as 'the best fly-fishing movie ever made' by Field & Stream and why Filson was a proud sponsor of this film throughout production. As soon as the credits rolled after the first viewing, we knew we would want to work with Finback Films -- the production company behind the film -- again on future projects. Now, we've finished final editing on "Open Door to Solitude," and five more shorts are coming soon. Watch the film first and then go behind the scenes with Tyler Hughen, a partner at Finback, as he details the story of Ed Zevely for "Open Door to Solitude."  Preparing for the Ed shoot ...Read More
TysonEdwards-FilsonLife-22Tyson Edwards is a photographer based in the Northwest that loves capturing nature and beautiful landscapes. Through his photography, he tells the story of life's great adventure. January isn't particularly the most popular time to visit the Canadian Rockies. Reason being, it is the coldest time of year. I mean very cold, subzero temperatures. You might then ask why would you want to go exploring during the coldest month of the year? Well, since there aren't many people that travel this time of year, there aren't many photographs that have captured the beautiful, untouched, endless landscapes.TysonEdwards-FilsonLife-1TysonEdwards-FilsonLife-3smallerAfter doing the last bit of research before the trip, I discovered that the Rockies were possibly go...Read More

Below, Jerry reflects on a family hunting tradition as the season comes to an end.FilsonLife_Duckhunt-3316Filson_Ducks-3035For me, duck hunting is much more than a hobby, it is a way of life steeped in family tradition.

image_01George Barnetts Polaroid photographs recount tales as timeless and storied as the woods themselves.

Botswana_BB_102There is a saying in the African bush, that if one thing doesn’t kill you, something else will, and nothing could be more true of the Cape buffalo. Sometimes called black death, they have long been the quest of many a bold sportsmen for that very reason; they are extremely dangerous to hunt. As Roosevelt, Hemingway, and Capstick would surely tell you, Cape buffalo are smart, alert, and notoriously ill-­tempered.Kilombero_1_375Maasailand_092Like any worthy trophy in hunting or fishing, the old boys are the hardest to get. These old bachelor bulls, or “‘dagga boys,” have left the herd and struck out on their own. Wisened and maddened by years of pursuit from man and beast, horns worn down from countless battles, they rare...Read More

Halley Roberts is a photographer based in Portland, Oregon. This winter, Halley returned to New Mexico --her childhood home-- to fish the scrappy waters of the San Juan River.

The second my feet crunch into permafrost I know I’m already dehydrated. My lips are starting to crack so I stuff my mouth with snow. I’m standing on a hill in the San Juan Basin Badlands surrounded by a raven nest and giant circular blobs of iron, all on a smoothly cascading landscape of ombre grays turning gently to brown. We drive, endlessly, through Navajo Country to find these unmarked geologic masterpieces. Range horses grazing on the frail ejections of native New Mexican grasses stare at us, unimpressed. I am her...Read More
