Issue #40

When he’s not catching large sharks, rays, and geelbek on fly, saltwater fly fishing maverick Jimmy Eagleton climbs for a living on offshore oil rigs. So, when it comes to accessing hard-to-reach gullies, caves, and cliffs to target small yet feisty species that most of us ignore, Jimmy’s in his element. Photographer Ryan Janssens tagged along on a recent mission to document Jimmy targeting “cliffhanger bream,” Jutjaw, Fransmadam, and John Brown in places we wager no fly anglers have gone before. In the process, Ryan shot this epic photo, his fourth cover for The Mission.
