Aaron Otto is a photographer whose work I have admired for some time. He seems to capture some really stunning images; i mean S-T-E-L-L-A-R Images. So it was with great pleasure that I read on his blog “Sleeping in the Dirt“, a few months ago, that he was developing an online e-zine called Sleeping In the Dirt. The issue was finally out Sunday.
The first issue is 47 pages long and is filled with stellar photography and a few destination style articles. The magazine on its table of content page has the following slogan “No Sponsors, No Advertisers, No Limits…..No Shit.” and that is exactly what you get in this issue. It is everything that is right with online fly fishing, in terms of killer photography, well written concise descriptions of the photos and maybe a little intro into the pictorial (although there weren’t any really “feature” articles in this issue, he hints at a 15 page article in the next issue). All in all it is a fine effort, and I look forward to the next issue, you should definitely check it out.
Ken Richards is seen here offering up a tasty morsel to unsuspecting trout on the backside of an island on the White River without a soul in sight.
Wading on 8 Units Can Be Done, if you know where to look.
Ken Richards is planning his attach on fishable water during heavy generation on the White River. If you know where to look, there is always wadeable water on the White River.
A Special Place.
My drift boat rowing mentor, Ken Richards, is seen here easing his way up the back side of an island on the White River during 8 units of generation. There is plenty of wading on the White River during heavy generation if you know where to look.
This shot was taking on a bluebird sky day while floating the White River. I was laying flat on my back in the bottom of an aluminum jon boat to get the silhouette shot of Evan Muskopf. Here he is seen loading his fly rod while throwing big streamers on the White River during a fall float. It was a long day, and no hogs were caught in the taking of this photo.
