Welcome to Basin & Range Outdoors

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. ~Theodore Roosevelt

Basin & Range Outdoors was created to share the adventures experienced by two brothers in the American West. From the highest alpine terrains to the lowest sonoran deserts we will chronicle the pain and triumph that accompanies all of our outdoor pursuits.

There will be no high-fence hunts, no fly fishing lodges, no streamside caviar and wine breaks. Instead, you can expect cold nights sleeping in the dirt, flat tires on old trucks, and big dreams realized on small budgets. With Basin & Range Outdoors you will find useful reviews of hunting and fly fishing products, techniques, locations, and a general review of our outdoor expeditions on public land.

Thank You Dec...

Just had to thank Dec Hogan for signing my copy of his renowned book “A Passion for Steelhead”.  Dec was a hero to my brother and I in our early years chasing steelhead on the Skagit, Sauk, Stilliguamish, and Skyomish Rivers where he was making a name for himself as a premier spey caster and steelhead guide.  We still talk about running into him at the small fly shop in Mt. Vernon (Skagit Anglers) when we were in High School.  Keep an eye out for the 3rd printing of his book coming out in August 2012.
