For Seattle chef Kevin Davis of Steelhead Diner and his crew of charismatic anglers known as the “Good Guys," catching fish on the river is seen as a plus, but being out in nature with close friends is what really matters. 

Over the last decade, Kevin, Steve Joyce, and Mark Kane have spent time together on rivers like the Yakima, camping, cooking, and helping each other through the joyous times as well as the tough. When they’re out in nature, Kane relates that “the weight of the day, or the month, or the year, is lifted. As soon as you step in the water, you’re cleansed.”

Navajo Fly Fisher

When I was 5 my dad put a spinner rod in my hands because he just couldn't wait any longer for his future (yet nonexistent at the time) son to be born. Little did he know he was planting a fishing seed that would grow and grow with an insatiable thirst. Being born and raised in Seattle as a kid my favorite fishing use to be the endless species inhabiting Elliot Bay caught using night crawlers that we dug up at Golden Gardens. When I cast my first fly rod that all changed.

I can’t remember the first time I set foot in a river and I can’t remember the first fish I caught on a fly rod. What I can remember is always being drawn to water. Creek, pond, river, lake, or stream I found something in them and around them that life other places didn’t offer. Fly Fishing has always been t...

A silence is over the farmlands of Iowa. The leaves have all fallen. A light layer of snow covers the yellow grass that has folded down for the year. [gallery royalslider="4" ids="12803,12806,12791,12809"] Aside from a few cows in the distance, the valley is still.
