Oregon photog Darcy Bacha recently punctuated the cover of Powder Magazine’s Photo Annual issue with this sick shot—pretty much the pièce de résistance for any rising ski-industry shooter. (Bacha is only 23.) Turns out his flyfishing images are equally inspiring. Check ’em out.
From metalheads: “It’s only a matter of time before his talent starts to find its way into the fly fishing arena. Not quite 24 years old, his “other” passion is fly fishing. We had a chance to spend a day on the Deschutes with Darcy and his buddy Dane Tudor this fall, these guys have skills beyond just being behind a lens and ski’s. They can flat out cast and fish too! Rumor has it they are editing some very solid video of their Alaskan adventure from this fall. Hope to share it with you here soon.”
