Show Notes with Gary Weber

Gary Weber's second book is on high mountain lakes.

John Shewey was on the podcast here and Mark Bachman was on the podcast here.  Two people that influenced Gary on his journey.

We noted Fishing in Oregon book which is a great resource for Oregon.  Gary's book, The Fly Fishers Guide to Oregon, is more focused on fly fishing and has more detail for each spot.

The Northwest Fly Fishing Magazine with John Shewey and Chuck Johnson with Wilderness Adventures Press are Gary's two big publishers right now.

The blog post of my dad getting into a fist fight on the Deschutes River.  Here's a link to that blog post that tells the story.

We talk about the Donner and Blitzen River and why the grasshopper is a killer pattern.  Just stay clear until August.

Gary gives us a great tip on using krystal flash under the wing.  The blitzen hopper is his goto patter.  He also loves a zug bug.

We talked about Euro Nymphing and Tenkara, both topics we've covered in the podcast in past episodes.

News Photography Exposed is Gary's website.  We talk about this amazing plane crash photo pic.

The 350,000 Nissan Frontier is Gary's goto vehicle.

The space shuttle explosion was a story that Gary covered back in the mid 1980's.

Gary also covered the world series when the earthquake hit.

I noted the Wilderness Float Tubes interview where we discussed ultra-light fishing.

Martin Joergensen is the Global Fly Fisher and noted that you should not wait for that next big trip.

You can find Gary at News Photography Exposed.
