Being that it is now winter, though it honestly does not feel like it due to the extreme lack of precipation Utah is experiencing, I have not been out fishing. Sad excuse because I know there is open water. I have also not been tying flies. Moving has really put a halt on tying due to lack of room in our current living situation. Hopefully I can get back to tying soon as I miss the art. Regardless, this season I have done other things with the family such as hiking and snowshoeing. It has been a lot of fun making memories together.
Recently, I am honored to say that I have won two photography contests. One was just a small Facebook contest, the other, a larger one put on by American Angler magazine. The Facebook contest was through a fly shop in Wyoming- Fly Shop of the Bighorns. They sent me a surprise box filled with all sorts of goods and also threw in something special for my daughter. As you can see in the picture below, Emma was quite happy with the gift, so was her dad. For the American Angler contest, my image debuted in the February/March edition which was recently released. I received the mag in the mail last week and it was awesome to see my image in the magazine. I won third place in the "Pass It On" category. Photography is something I really enjoy and seek to get better at. The few contests I have won have been a rewarding experience.
Hopefully I can get back to posting more regularly soon. Thanks for reading and tightlines!
