I'm extremely excited to announce that legendary spring creek angler and author, Mike Lawson has agreed to take part in Spring Creek: Ranchers, Anglers, Water and Trout. Icons need no introductions and Mike is no exception, but if you've been living under a rock like a stonefly...here's his bio. Mike has agreed to take me under his expert tutalege and teach me some secrets to spring creek angling success. Mike is the author of the most comprehensive and definitive work about fishing spring creeks. Simply titled "Spring Creeks" it represents a lifetime's worth of knowledge dedicated to fly fishing spring creeks that took Lawson 12 years to produce. Mike Lawson is what I classify as a "serious get for the film" and I honored that he will take time out of a busy schedule to take part in the film. “Up to now I’ve never found any fly fishing situation I didn’t like or enjoy but fishing for trout on spring creeks is the pinnacle of it all. I’m very honored and excited at being invited to be a part of a film about fishing for trout on spring creeks. I am thrilled to help provide some insights to all who desire to learn more about this pleasant pursuit.” says Lawson. Mike and I will shoot this coming season on his homewaters the venerable Henry's Fork. More Later T>
When I'm locked in old man winter's icy grip, the only thing that can prevent a murderous case of the shack nasties, is a good read. And, while slobbering drool and various bodily fluids all over glossy magazines is nothing new for me, escaping the "winter blues" with a great fly fishing magazine article, has become a time honored tradition. During this winter's research for Spring Creek: Ranchers, Anglers, Water and Trout, I discovered a great read in the 2010 Fall/Winter issue of Montana Sporting Journal, Big Sky Country's premier Hunting and Fishing magazine. Penned by MSJ's own Will Jordan, author of Flyfisher's Guide to Arizona , "A Montana Spring Creek Tour" provides an intimate look "at some of the state's top spring creek fisheries". A topic right up my creek, so to speak. Of course I contacted Will and MSJ right away and I'm happy to announce they've agreed to take part in the film.
