2013 Year in Review
2013 Year in Review
During the process of developing a new website for Primal Angler, I compiled a few photo galleries of some of the media posted via Primal Angler in 2013. This includes photos posted via the Primal Angler blog as well as social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Flicker.
2013 began with wild steelhead adventures on coastal rivers in the temperate rain-forests of the Pacific Northwest. Spring found me bounty hunting pike-minnow on the Columbia and fishing for springers on the Klickitat. Summer was spent guiding at Royal Wolf Lodge in Bristol Bay, a truly world-class operation and one of the top fly-out lodges in Alaska! Katmai is a magical place and a fisherman and photographers dream! Looking forward to next summer!
Fall was spent on the dry side of the Pacific Northwest chasing steelhead in the desert, living on a friend’s sailboat in Ballard for a few weeks, plus a couple trips to the coastal rivers for coho. Floated the Klickitat with Loop USA’s – Shane Wootan and long-time friends of mine Marc Crapo – Fly Wallets and Chris Owens of Motiv Fishing / GeoFish. Marc made a custom leather Primal Angler fly wallet for me, by far my most treasured gift of 2013!
2013 ended with a little warm-water fishing in Georgia with my father and a 2,200 mile road-trip to Michigan for the holidays. Despite not having used my passport at all in 2013 (what?!), I still managed to catch a few fish and have some pretty cool angling adventures!
Looking forward to the upcoming wild steelhead season here in the Pacific Northwest and (hopefully!) a trip to Mexico and Patagonia this year! Happy holidays and best of luck on all of your upcoming Angling Adventures in 2014!
Primal Angler Hoodies are on their way, along with a new website! Stay tuned!
