Adventure On A Budget: Wintertime on the Famous San Juan River

By Kent Danjanovich Now from reading my articles for the past 15-years, you have probably picked up that I kind of like to fly fish. So, when I’m not chasing salmon and everything else in Alaska or northern pike and everything else in Canada, you just might find me searching out a good piece of fly water somewhere in the west.

Spring Snows in Saskatchewan

By Kent Danjanovich I’ll have to admit – I really love the outdoors. Whether it’s grabbin’ my golf clubs and heading to my local course, packing my fly rod for a trip to Alaska or breaking a few clays with my trusty Browning shotguns in preparation for fall bird hunts, I just can’t get enough of it. During an average year, I spend about 150 days at sports shows, on the water or in the field. Once we find a good outfitter, we do everything we can to make sure they are happy with us and likewise, we are...
