In Thoreau's Woods

Just received word here in New Zealand from Matt Libby, Libby Camps, Maine, that our photo essay "In Thoreau's Woods" is in the March/April Issue of Gray's Sporting Journal. Matt and his family have been in Thoreau's woods for 5 generations running Libby Camps, a fly-fishing, hunting, and family vacation camp. Wonderful people and a superbly-run operation in a beautiful part of the world. Look for a copy at your newstand.

Owen River Lodge, New Zealand

Barry Beck & Greg Gardner with a beautiful South Island brown


This is our fourth day at ORL on the South Island, NZ. We're had the nicest weather ever in New Zealand and some incredible fish. The new Sage ONEs are making a big hit here as it is the perfect rod, when loaded with a Rio Grand line, for turning over big bushy dries and heavy nymphs on long leaders, sometimes 18' long.

Report from the South Island, New Zealand

Nick Robertson, South Island
Nick Robertson, South Island


We're here at Riverview Lodge, South Island. Just finished our fourth day. Fishing has been good and rivers are all at great levels. Lots of fish being caught on big beetles, parachute Adams, and various nymphs. Biggest so far is an 8 pound brown caught by David Theimann, not to mention his 6 and 7-1/2 pound fish caught the same day. This is the place for a big fish.

June 23-30, 2012




Ponoia River, Russia

The Ryabaga Camp on the Ponoi River epitomizes all that we love about a remote fishing experience; the excitement of a true wilderness location yet an oasis of comfort, hospitality and fine cuisine; a totally wild Atlantic salmon population that is thriving – where the efforts to care for the stocks show positive results.

We're returning to the Ponoi River in June, 2012. Cross off this week in your calendars and come with us for an extraordinary trip in prime time! Read the itinerary and get all the details!

Delphi Club, Abaco, Bahamas

We just got back from a great trip to the Delphi Club, Abaco Island, Bahamas. A brand new, beautiful lodge designed with both the angler and non-angler in mind. It's always a gamble going to the Bahamas in January. We got lucky with a lot of sun and bonefish, but without too much wind and clouds. Check out the details at Frontiers, and view album on Facebook.

Nikon D5100

Nikon D5100



If you're looking for a super sharp compact SLR and don't want to spend a ton of money but still want a very good camera, check out the Nikon D5100.

Our grandson, Ethan, is studying Graphic Design. For Christmas he asked his parents and grandparents (us) for a SLR camera. We suggested the Nikon D5100 with the AF 18-55 lens that comes with it, 16.2 megapixel with swivel LCD monitor, plus HD movies.

We all played with it over Christmas and was amazed at the photos we got. We loved for 4 frames per second continuous shooting. We also have two little grandsons (2 and 3) and it's so nice to capture the moment at the moment, not 5 seconds too late.

Check out all the features, at Nikon USA and if you don't have a terrific camera shop with someone who takes the time to answer questions and is willing to walk with you through the decision making process, contact Jody Grober at Roberts Distributors in Indianapolis, IN. 800-726-5544 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Tell him we sent you. You'll find him very professional, patient, and super nice to work with - and he fly fishes!
