Ian has been involved in the fly fishing industry since the early 1990s. Having grown up in the Catskill Mountains, Ian later went on to attend the Art Institute of Chicago where he studied landscape painting. In the early 90s, he moved to Colorado, where he spent 12 years as the owner of Breckenridge Outfitters. After leaving Colorado in 2003, Ian joined the Yellow Dog team as co-owner, saltwater director, and manager of Yellow Dog's Bahamas program. He has fished extensively throughout the world in both fresh-and saltwater. Ian is an accomplished photographer and handles all of the art and illustrations for Yellow Dog's catalogs and other literature.
When Ian and the rest of the Yellow Dog staff fish around the world, they use Winston rods exclusively. They fish the rods hard, and travel with them in just about every conceivable situation. When you book your next trip with Yellow Dog, be sure to take advantage of their Winston Loaner and Field Test Program, which allows you to test and fish Winstons on your next adventure. Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures is proud to be associated with Winston Fly Rods, as well as being neighbors in beautiful Big Sky County — Montana.
Todd Moen is the Video Editor and Producer of Catch Magazine, and after years of living in the Big Sky country, he now calls Central Oregon his home. Todd began his career combining fly fishing and film at an early age, and then sharpened his skills by traveling the world to film for ESPN, CBS, and OLN. His talent for combining light, composition, and the perfect accompanying soundtracks make him a standout producer, capturing the true beauty and soul of fly fishing. He was awarded Best Cinematography for his short film called "Alpine Bass" in the 2009 Drake Flyfishing Video Awards. Todd and his business partner, Brian O'Keefe, have revolutionized the fly fishing industry with their online fly fishing magazine, now starting its fourth season. Reaching more than 73,000 subscibers in over 141 countries, this publication uses no paper in its commitment to finding the world's greatest fishing photography and film in an environmentally responsible way. Todd's T-Motion video shorts, an integral part of the magazine, keep him searching the globe for the best fishing action he can capture on film. In his precious time away from the magazine, he enjoys fishing with his wife and introducing his two young children to new adventures among the rivers and streams near his home.
