Anglers Journal - - BETWEEN FISH -

Con­sumed by fish­ing, Capt. John Jinishian guides in Alaska dur­ing the sum­mer and in Mon­tana on the shoul­der sea­sons. He rep­re­sents the third gen­er­a­tion of fish­er­men in his fam­ily and also has guided on the East Coast. John writes about trips to frozen west­ern New York to fish for steel­head, browns and lake trout in “Stonecold Awe­some.”

John Larison is a for­mer steel­head guide and the au­thor of three books about the fish, in­clud­ing the how-to text The Com­plete Steel­header. His lat­est novel, Whiskey When We’re Dry, will be pub­lished by Vik­ing in the sum­mer of 2018. John, who lives on a gravel road in Ore­gon’s Coast Range, takes us on a mem­o­rable steel­head trip in “Flood, Fire and Chrome.”

Tom Lynch is a pho­tog­ra­pher, surf fish­er­man and the owner of An­gry Fish Gallery in Point Pleas­ant Beach, New Jersey. He shoots for On The Wa­ter mag­a­zine, and his im­agery also has ap­peared in Big Game Fish­ing Jour­nal, Sport Fish­ing, Fly Fish­er­man and Amer­i­can An­gler, among oth­ers. Tom was in the right place at the right time when he shot the photo in the “Un­fore­seen” spread in this is­sue.

Pho­tog­ra­pher Jes­sica Hay­dahl Richard­son loves to cap­ture life un­fold­ing be­fore her camera lens. Grow­ing up on the ocean in Van­cou­ver, Bri­tish Columbia, her pas­sion for pho­tog­ra­phy and na­ture grew into a pro­fes­sion. She has worked with the Van­cou­ver Canucks pro hockey team and Getty Images, and has been pub­lished in sev­eral fish­ing mag­a­zines and other pub­li­ca­tions. Jes­sica’s photos il­lus­trate “The Last, Best Place.”

Pho­tog­ra­pher Arian

Stevens grew up in the foothills be­tween Yosemite Na­tional Park and Lake Ta­hoe, where he was ex­posed to the grandeur of the Sierra Ne­vada. He fan­cies him­self more of a pho­tog­ra­pher than a fish­er­man, but his pas­sion for both is ev­i­dent in his pur­suits. Arian’s pho­to­graphs il­lus­trate “Flood, Fire and Chrome.”

Greg Thomas is the ed­i­torin-chief for Great Falls, Mon­tana-based North 40 Out­fit­ters. His books in­clude Fly Fisher’s Guide to Washington and Fly Bi­ble: Mon­tana.

Greg writes about two po­lar-op­po­site cap­tains he worked for in “Alaska, Un­fil­tered.”
