Considerations of a Successful Steelheader OOD April 2013

A while back I was lucky enough to be approached by Ontario Out of Doors Magazine with a photo need they had for an article on the Rivers of Ontario's West Coast.  I was caught off guard and quite honoured to be able to assist them .  Well as luck would have it one assignment lead to another and I have been very fortunate to have been able to provide them and their readership with small glimpses into my world and passion.  Every so often one of my images grace the pages of this top notch publication and I still find myself in disbelief that I am working with them. 
Over the past year through conversation and some writing guidance I ended up submitting a small interest piece on what makes a successful steelheader.  I surprisingly received some positive feedback on the piece and left it at that.  Earlier this week while I was at the cabin with Norland I received a text from a steelheader friend Harv congratulating me on the article.  Well as it turns out they ran the piece in the April edition complimented with another image I had submitted.
It's my first article for OOD and hopefully a precursor to many.  It's nothing too heavy but once again a step towards future prospects.  Baby steps they say... 
Check it out on page 24 of the April edition in "The Opener" section.
