My husband Jake and I live our life around adventure. Living in the midst of all great things outdoors in central Oregon, it’s tough not to. Fly fishing for anadromous fish is our greatest addiction, and it is by far what we spend most of our free time pursuing. Whether we are miles deep on a remote desert river or walking down a seemingly endless, soaking wet gravel bar in the rain forest, our best memories are captured there. From the smiles and laughter when it all comes together, the tears and frustration for when it doesn’t, and the zillions of casts to one fish…these are moments I never want to forget.

Each steelhead is a true treasure, which we never take for granted. And throughout all the physical and mental breakdowns, we’re always reminded that with each sunrise comes a new hope and a new reason to remember why we are here. Capture it, share it, or put it back in our pockets. These are our happy thoughts. Moments we will hold close to our heart forever.
