Flyfishers come from all walks of life, but it is the older school likes of people like Jack Dennis, Denny Rickard, and Jim Teeny who have left an indelible impression on all of us who swing the bug. Today, we all catch more and bigger fish because of their teachings. Some of these old timers have stories to tell yet they've waited most their life to let it all out. Such is the case with Photographer, Fly fishing Guide, and shop owner Lynn Scott. Lynn seems a quiet, reserved soul with lots to tell and passion beyond our wildest dreams. His fervor shines through in his photography and this is why we chose him for our logo art. Sometimes in life, finding something so refined proves difficult. We feel we've done it here with Lynn's contribution to our page. It seems that with each passing day his photography becomes more magnetic. If you'd like to see more of Lynn's art visit him in person at his shop in Island Park, Idaho or virtually at:
The Fish Fly thanks Lynn for all he does for our sport!

Brian La Rue has been a long time writer/photographic contributor for many of the Regional Fly Fishing publications over the years. He currently writes and photographs for High Country Angler Magazine, the Denver fly fishing examiner, and the National fly Fishing examiner. What's even better is that Brian is also an exceptional Fly Fisherman. We recently hooked up with Brian for some rainbow fishing and to show the prowess of the "ale egg" fly on pre-spawn rainbow trout. The result is our video of the month for June. Thanks Brian, it's great to have a new friend in the Fly Fishing Industry.
