FAVORITE SA LINE: MAGNUM WF8
Russel Miller grew up in the burbs of Chicago where the bass are abundant and the Lake Michigan steelhead run hard. After moving out to Boulder, to attend CU, he received a BFA in photography, a BA in Art History, and a degree in web design. The long CU summer breaks were spent with clients, running around showcasing all that the Front Range has to offer. Any free time was spent fishing local Boulder waters and traveling to surrounding areas chasingwild high country trout, tailwater hogs, and still water species. Now happily settled into Front Range Anglers and still living in Boulder, Russell has kept up his enthusiasm and continues to pursue the next great adventure.
Fishing is something that tends to be handed down from one generation to another, my case is no different. My grandfather thought himself to be an Ernest Hemingway type and was swallowed up in deep sea fishing and surf fishing in the Outer Banks of NC. Every fall and summer we would pack up and spend a few weeks dodging weather and chasing schools of fish. Growing up in Chicago meant the salt was far away, but a canoe, a cousin who fished, and tons of lakes and rivers meant that another cast was not far away. It was not until the summer before high school when the family took a trip to Colorado that I found fly fishing. There I got my first rod and reel combo at Wal-Mart I have preferred casting a line instead of a lure after catching my first stocker trout out of the Yampa.
