I’ve taken countless fish/fishing pictures over the years, more than I can even begin to count. Over the last few seasons I made a promise to myself to try and get a little bit better at it. We’ve all seen the ‘hero’ shots and as much as I can tell, they aren’t going away anytime soon. Not that the classic ‘grip and grin’ shots are bad, I just wanted to challenge myself to try something a little different. There will always be a place in the sport for showing off…we are fly fishers after all.
My goal was to get a little bit better camera and better editing software and capture more images of the totality of the sport…the bugs, gear, the fish, the landscapes. With that said every once in a while you get a shot that you remember, this is one of those shots for me. The cheek of this bow from last December will be etched in my memory forever.
My new goal, get a better camera, and better editing software. Will it ever end!!?? I hope not.
Loops in Lambeau
With the first blog post for the new website (and NFL playoff time), I figured I would think outside the box a bit. In the future you can expect to see fishing reports, fish pics, salt water destination info, maybe even some gear reviews. This isn’t one of those posts. I’ve been lucky over the years to travel to some pretty amazing places with a rod on my hand, and have also been lucky to catch few nice fish along the way.
This past season while on the road with the Fly Fishing Film Tour, I got to do something no fly fisher could have dreamt of. The boys and I had the opportunity to be the first people ever to cast a fly rod on the historic Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. During our private tour we learned the ins-and-outs of the stadium, and took as many pics as we could along the way.
There is no question that this will always be one of the most memorable things I’ve ever done with a fly rod in my hand…even if there were no tails involved.
