Photographer Steve Turner
Steve Turner spent his early years in the flatlands of east Texas cutting his teeth on bass, bluegill and catfish, all the while devouring every hook-and-bullet publication he could get his hands on, dreaming of the day when he would fish mountain streams and coastal rivers for trout, steelhead and salmon. Marrying a girl from Washington State (who as it happens loves to fish as much as he does) provided a ready-made excuse to relocate to the Pacific Northwest and pursue that dream.
Like many angler/photographers, he finds himself far too often with rod in hand when he should actually be looking through the viewfinder. He has fleeting thoughts about seeking counsel for this affliction, but inevitably, at about that same time, a steelie or permit hammers his fly, rips into his backing and sucks him right back into the vortex. Basically, he’s bloody hopeless.
