Black and White is what I shoot when the colors are all wrong. Black and White seems so nice on those shitty, snowy, rainy, days without much in the way of texture. I have always loved shooting in B/W because it gives me a whole different mindset. A different reason to shoot. Sometimes the shots [...]

The first picture is from the Lower Grande Ronde. Typically this end of the river is stuffed full of fisherman who are way, way to serious. To buck the trend, we found a gigantic foam cowboy hat and my buddy Mike from Portland rocked it for most of the day. Got a few weird looks, but he still caught fish! I love this shot with Mike and my father as it looks Mike’s listening intently to some story from my dad, all while rocking the ridiculous hat…

Regular contributor Capt Gjuro Bruer submitted these images from a trout fishing trip to Arkansas.  A real surprise to us.  We didn’t know Gjuro had ever been trout fishing before.

It all started 25 years ago, a friend of mine invited me on a mountain fishing trip in northern Sweden. I bought myself some equipment and already at the first cast I was hooked. In a relatively early stage, I was also introduced to fly tying and photographing. Today everything goeshand in hand for me and I never travel without my camera and I fish exclusively with my own flies. So after two and a half decades…
