Wyoming’s Brush Creek Ranch

By Kent Danjanovich Senior Editor Fly fishermen are always looking for new waters, may it be in the form of high mountain lakes, big rivers or pristine trickling creeks. Here in the west, we are fortunate to have a great selection of all of the above. Now, even though we have some great opportunities in my home state of Utah, some of my favorite waters are located in our adjoining state of Wyoming. Exceptional opportunities present themselves throughout the year, whether it be stripping streamers, nymphing or presenting a dry fly. We are always looking for new and exciting...

Well, because we have had such great...

With so many species of fish available throughout the largest of our fifty states, Alaska, for most, is the ultimate destination when searching to fulfill ones’...

The Waterfowl Byway of Saskatoon

By Kent Danjanovich Waterfowlers are a funny breed. You find them in all shapes and sizes, young and old and both male and female. Their camo outfits are usually covered with a thin coating of mud and dirt, many dab a little blackout under their eyes and all have a favorite call they carry with them where ever they hunt. Some still swear by their trusty old 12ga. pump or double-barrel, while others sport the newest auto-loader on the planet (most of those old jobbies still seem to do the job pretty darn well). But all of them have...
