We are an extremely small crew of outdoor loving / fishy people who love to code and are always looking for assistance and innovative ways to help our community. Do you love writing exceptional rich content, creating breath-taking dramatic images, updating river and segments, social-media savvy, sharing fishing stories and passing along knowledge? Or perhaps, you are technically proficient and enjoy working on the entire stack? Let's talk. Drop us a note using the form below.

The river felt relativity empty today. Slightly smoky, but you could still see the blue sky. :)
