    I work with the folks at Simms Fishing Products as a product field tester and as a member of their guide program. I also thank Simms for allowing me to use Brian Grossenbacher’s images from the Simms 2010/11 catalog shoot on the site. I have contributed to The Wading Room, the Simms blog, including a post on my approach to spring creek angling: Spring Creek Success .

New Zealand Guides

The guide listed is at the very top of his game, and I recommend him to any anglers traveling to that part of new Zealand.


Over the years, I have been lucky enough to work with some of the most talented photographers in the fly fishing world. The following photographers have been generous enough to let me display their images on this site:
