From images of members fishing for Northwest steelhead, to Boundary Waters northern pike to High Rockies cutthroat trout, we received many great submissions to BHA’s 2nd annual Backcountry Angling Photo Contest, which wrapped up August 1st. With so many good backcountry angling submissions, choosing winners was not an easy task, yet after much deliberation a panel arrived at the following finalists:
-1st Place: Brett Edward Larabee - Evening break while hiking the Teton Crest Trail (pictured).
-2nd Place: Jim Harper - 9 year old Henry Harper with his first Missouri River Rainbow.
-3rd Place: Logan Mitchell - Landed this gorgeous Brown Trout in a spring creek tributary to the lower Snake River in Idaho.
Thanks to Filson for their generous support of this event, each of the finalists will receive one of the following items as a prize: Stockingfoot Wader, Fly Fishing Strap Vest or Fly Fishing Waist Pack.
