Fly Fishing & Photography with Llamas in Wyoming



Visit the stunning Wind River Mountains.
Photo: Rich Brame


Are your travel pictures ineffective, but you wish you could wow your friends? Do you like to fly fish or would you like to learn? Have you been to one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the US—the Wind Rivers? Would you like a friendly, low-maintenance hiking partner (w/ 4-legs) to help carry your stuff into the backcountry?

Well, this trip combines all of the above elements into one outstanding trip. We'll hike into prime fishing and scenic parts of the Winds using llamas for support. Accompanying us on this trip will be a professional photographer who'll walk interested folks through photography basics—exposure, composition, lighting, filters, depth of field and more—and then we'll head out to capture improved shots. We'll fold in group critique to raise the bar on the interestingness and narrative qualitites of your shots. In fact, one of the trip's outcomes will be a photo book of shots by the group.

If photography isn't your cup o' tea, our route has outstanding fly fishing, and day hiking options. No matter what your fishing background, we can help you improve your cast, presentation and success. Angling participants are responsible for purchasing an appropraite Wyoming fishing license (costs vary depending on age and actual days fishing).

And, of course, the Winds are a stunning location for exploration, hiking, journal-writing, and building memories with your friends and family.
