    Brita Fordice

    Brita Fordice cut her flyfishing teeth on the rivers, lakes and shorelines of the Puget Sound region of Washington state. As a product developer, she plays a big part in the development, design and testing of RIO's wide selection of flies—including her personal favorites, squid and shrimp patterns. 
    In the episode, we chat about her days chasing carp (without fly rods) for bounties in eastern Washington, the mentors who helped refine her tying techniques, the ins and outs of fly design and development, and her newest hobby: giving her husband tattoos.
    To learn more about Fordice and her work, check out "Seeing a Pattern," our profile of her in Issue 14.1.

    Jeremy Koreski

    Jeremy Koreski

    In the introduction to The Flyfish Journal’s gallery of Jeremy Koreski’s photography in issue 6.1, Colin Wiseman wrote: “Jeremy Koreski is a son of the ocean.” It sounds hyperbolic, until you start flipping through the images, or scrolling through the work available on Jeremy’s website, or—ideally—viewing his work at his one of his galleries in Tofino or Vancouver, British Columbia. Water is a major player, almost always present in some form. Sometimes he’s in it, sometimes he far above it.
    Koreski has worked with Patagonia, YETI, Quicksilver and Vans, among many others—meaning you’ve likely seen plenty of his images. His list of editorial contributions is equally long, including, in addition to The Flyfish Journal, work for The Surfer’s Journal, Conde Nast, Outside Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, and ESPN.
    In 2015, he published This is Nowhere, a coffee-table tome organized around elemental subjects: Water, Wind, Earth, Fire, and The Unknown. He’s had a gallery in Tofino, BC, since 2015, and recently opened a new space in Vancouver, BC, called the Wild Space gallery.

    Kate and Justin Crump

    Kate and Justin Crump

    When Kate and Justin Crump started Frigate Travel together, they had a couple simple goals: Provide a top-notch fishing experience for their clients, and free up some time for their own adventures during the off-seasons. With more than a decade as two of the most sought after steelhead guides on the Oregon coast, and with an ever-deepening connection to Bristol Bay, AK, they've had no problem sticking with #1, but as any outfitter or lodge operator knows, free time is an ever-vanishing commodity.
    In this episode, we chat about their progression from being seasonal guides in Alaska and Oregon to becoming full-on outfitters bringing to life a new generation of fishing lodge on Alaska's Naknek River and Tillamook Bay, OR. Their committment to the people and places that make their endeavors possible is admirable and instructive.

    David James Duncan

    David James Duncan

    David James Duncan is one of those people who need no introduction, but we've got one anyway.
    Duncan’s first novel, The River Why, was published by the Sierra Club in 1983, becoming a cult classic within the flyfishing world and beyond. Nearly 10 years would pass before the publication of his second novel, The Brothers K, and more than 30 would elapse until the publication of his third and most recent novel, the epic Sun House published by Little, Brown in 2023.
    In between novels, Duncan published four books of essays and stories; he had a part in the making of films like "Damnation" and "Trout Grass;" and, through it all, he’s fought passionately for the environment and against unfettered extraction and bankrupt spirituality.
    Duncan was kind enough to invite Jason and Copi to his home outside Missoula this spring where they sat in his living room amidst the curios of a literary life, stacks of books, and complete and not-so-complete manuscripts waiting to see the light of day. We talked about flyfishing, of course, but we also talked about spiritual integrity, writing, coming of age and the work still in store for him. At 72, the guy has no plans to slow down, and the literary community is fortunate for that.
