We’re proud to give a shout out to several of our Fly Fishing profession’s home grown Rock Stars.
Drake Magazine is a grassroots journal for flyfishing enthusiasts. It was founded in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in the summer of 1998 on the principle that too much contemporary outdoor writing gives away all the answers to people who never learned what the questions were.
Today it includes emerging voices (including local guide Shannon Outing, a photographer at Shannon Outing Photography), right alongside tried and true veteran craftsmen and women.

Fish For Change
Connection – Education – Conservation – Exploration
The Fish for Change Mission is to use fly-fishing as a platform to make the world a better place by uniting a diverse group of students in wild fisheries where they engage in a variety of initiatives that promote Connection, Education, Conservation, and Exploration.
Throughout the course of the program, students integrate with local communities and work together on local and global initiatives, including community development projects, mangrove restoration, education based projects with local children, community art projects, trash clean ups and more.
Executive Director Steve Brown is a Colorado native who has been fly fishing most of his life. For the past 17 years he has been guiding in Southeastern Colorado. Several journeys through Central America during off seasons led him to the Bay islands of Honduras, saltwater fly-fishing.
He found expansive flats empty of any other anglers, yet full of fish: permit, bonefish, tarpon, and more. Steve’s dreams of starting a small, sustainable fly-fishing lodge came to fruition in the Spring of 2008.
