Below, follow Paul, his new pup Wilma Jean, and ...

filson-jsm-3570Justin Meyer is a photographer based in Des Moines, Iowa.He explores trout fishing his home waters of Northeast Iowa year round.—There is a solitude found on the winter waters. [gallery royalslider="4" ids="12866,12824,12794,12797"] The hustle and bustle of the summer has died, the farmers have tucked their combines away for the cold season. A silence is over the farmlands of Iowa. The leaves have all fallen.

But the stream flows on and the trout are still hungry. The fair-weather fans are nowhere ...Read More

Filson_MT_002Tyler Sharp is a documentary photographer, writer, and filmmaker based out of Dallas, Texas. Traveling extensively on assignment, he has filmed and photographed a myriad of cultures and landscapes, and slept under the stars in some of the most remote regions of the world.  Today, Tyler explores the American West in Montana with a fly rod and his family. There is something very mystical about the American West, where the spirit of the wilderness is still alive for those who know where to find it.

Red Legged Devils - Snowcock Hunting Larry McKurtis is a writer and amateur photographer living in Northern Nevada. He prefers sleeping in the dirt, pushing himself to delirious exhaustion, and getting to the marrow of the matter at hand. Aside from writing he's an avid cyclist, wood worker, hunter, and fly fisherman. These activities give him an excuse to travel and explore the American West and North America. His blog Red Legged Devils covers his experiences in the out of doors. We crested the 11,000 foot summit in a thick bank of clouds, the dog vanishing from left to right as she worked the plateau for scent. I was tired but the dog sure wasn't. She seemed oblivious to the five digit elevation and the many rocky, thorny mi...Read More

Intro-Photo The massive trout rose gently from a deep shadow between the boulders. A muscular shimmer in the green water. It seemed unconcerned with the unusual strength of the tiny nymph in its jaws which dragged it slowly towards the surface. For a split-second the three of us froze. Then the size of the fish registered and our hearts kicked into high gear as the adrenaline coursed through our veins. I snapped into action, bolting for my camera and net which lay just a few feet behind us. Maybe, just maybe, we could net the monster before he realized how steeply the odds were stacked in his favor. Camera and net in hand I turned to sprint to the edge of the pool only to find Joseph with his head down...Read More
