  • A Change is in the Air
    on Apr 26, 2016
    I write for quite a few blogs, and between work and all those I have really let this one slide. So the decision was made to try and incorporate my photography, video, and blog all into one place. It will definitely make it easier on me, and help with...
  • Tradition Thinking
    on Jan 30, 2016 in archery hunting recurve bow
    I wrote an article for our Trailing Hook Journal last week and thought I might share it over here. It's about a new endeavor my son and I are pursuing. Have a look.http://trailinghookjournal.com/2016/01/25/traditional-thinking/Scott...
  • Pic of the DayAnother photo from last week's Alpine trip. I went to visit my ol' stomping grounds, the former Woodward Ranch. I've spent over half my life running around that place and miss it dearly. I can still visit, but only from a distance now. :( On the way...
  • Pic of the Day I love West Texas. All of it. Alpine, Marfa, Ft Davis, Big Bend. This last weekend while shooting the Big Bend Livestock Show, I had some time to drive around and just roam. This was going towards Marfa, a few miles from the Marfa Lights viewin...
  • Off to the River It was another beautiful river trip on the South Concho last week. Weather was perfect and the fish were biting. Here's my full trip report with lots of photos...http://trailinghookjournal.com/2015/12/10/off-to-the-river/...
  • A Long Four MonthsI didn't realize how hard it was going to be to keep up with the various blogs i'm either doing solo or as a collaboration. They are all around outdoors, kayaks, and fishing, but each has a different purpose, and strangely, different audiences. Unfor...
  • A Trip Back in Time - The Final ChapterThe final chapter is done and the 2015 Dude's Trip book is closed. It was an awesome adventure with memories that will last a lifetime. I have been truly blessed with an amazing family and the gift of adventure. So here's to many, many more.....http:...
  • A Trip Back in Time Part 2Here is part 2 in our Dude's Trip 2015. There are a ton of photos and a bit yappin', but I wanted to have this for me more than anything. Our previous trips are awesome memories, but some things get a little muddy with time, so I wanted to make sure...
  • A Trip Back in Time Part 1
    on Nov 18, 2015
    I was finally able to finish up and publish Part 1 of our annual Dude's Trip from a week ago. My son and I had a blast and can't wait for our next adventure. I decided since I haven't had the time to help contribute to my other collaborative site, th...
  • Pic of the Day
    on Nov 15, 2015 in dudes trip new mexico Pic of the Day
    November 6, 2015. Roaming around Lake Valley, NM. you'll come across a lot of history. Even some of the "newer" things have a story to tell. 1935 Plymouth. It stayed as it laid when it's owner left, so they say. :)...
  • Back Around
    on Nov 11, 2015
     Ever since we got back from Outdoor Retailer in August, life and work, have kicked in full force. There hasn't been any time to fish, yak, or do much of anything. In the business we're in, it's feast or famine. So it's a double edged sword for...
  • Outdoor Retailer 2015 Video Montage
    on Aug 20, 2015 in Kayak and Canoe nikon D7200
    This is a video montage I put together from the week we were in Salt Lake City at Outdoor Retailer. We worked 12-14 hours a day filming, editing, and uploading. It was an amazing experience, and i'm glad I was part of the team. Everything is finished...
  • Unexpected Run to the RiverAfter doing some maintenance work on the site, I realized for some reason this story never published here from a few weeks ago. I had posted on a kayak fishing forum and our Trailing Hook Journal site, but didn't realize it never got posted here. So...
  • Outdoor Retailer 2015 RecapWhat an experience. For those that might not know, Adam Hayes (co-owner of yakangler), Chris Funk and myself headed to cover Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City the first week of August. Chris and I had never been, so it was an eye opener. We were t...
  • A Quick Morning FlyAfter two and a half weeks with no days off, I was able to make a short run to the river on Tuesday. I had a very short amount of time to go, but really needed to work on some river film projects i’ve put on the back burner because of my schedul...
  • Weekends
    on Jul 17, 2015
    Some weekends are better than others. But lately my time off is getting smaller and smaller. I get to hear and see all the great things all my kayaking buddies are doing. Well, here's a little idea of what most my weekends consist of.
  • Catching A BreakI had come to terms with the fact I wasn’t going to get out fishing for a while. It’s already been two weeks and I figured it would be a few more. But around 8pm last night, a few things changed. I was released from prior obligations and sudde...
  • River Untamed TrailerOn June 17th 2014, Bert​, Daniel​, Ryan​, and myself​ dropped in at Pandale Texas for a 5 day, 60 mile kayak/canoe trip down the Pecos River. That first day was one of the hardest days i've ever had on a river to that point. Day 2 and 3 were...
  • Rising WaterThis makes the third week in a row that my day off falls on a monsoon, so the kayak stays in the garage. I don't get along well with heavy rains and rivers anymore. I can't/won't complain about the rain, it's too precious to this parched land. W...
  • Filming in the RainI haven't had much time lately to do much of anything outside of work, including over here. But I was able to get out on Tuesday to get a little shooting done. It was raining so I left all my regular gear and kayak at home. I threw in my cameras and...
