As a fisherman, I've gone through distinct phases:

  • I want to catch a fish... any fish
  • I want to catch lots of fish
  • I want to catch big fish
  • Now, I enjoy helping others learn to fish

I believe outdoor recreational activities are beneficial, particularly to young people. I'm rebuilding and improving this website to provide good how-to and where-to information. While I do that you can see my old-style pages here:

Fishing | Camping | Hiking | Photography | Rock Art & Ruins | Waterfalls

Some of the articles here came from the old Utah Fishing and Outdoors print magazine. New articles and photos will be published on a regular basis.
