The cover of Cabela’s latest fly fishing catalog features my image of fly fishing guide Glenn Melus casting in Maroon Lake. We shot on a beautiful fall day at the lake near Aspen, Colorado and the whole crew donned waders in order to shoot at this spot in front of the Sievers Mountain Range. With the sun hitting Glenn on his right side, we added a large reflector behind Glenn to rake light on the left side of his face. I varied the compositions by using a Ewa-Marine underwater casing and shooting some images partially underwater. A big thank-you to Jason Brazda from Cabela’s for his art direction on location.
