It’s hard to hold back too long without posting a set of fly fishing photos. It would be a stretch to say I have thousands of them but I probably have several hundred. I was a fly fishing guide for many years here in British Columbia. Mostly the South East corner, (where all the fish are). Not many people would disagree with the thought that the S.E. corner of this province is the real fly fishing Mecca of North America. Some in Montana fight me on this one but my only response is to say, “Come try it out for your self”. I packed a camera along on every trip. For myself and for my fishing customers.
It would take me hours to go through them all to find the ones I like the best. Here are a few that I have always liked. Photos where I did get the results I was going for. Grip and grin photos are what you get most of the time with fishing snap shots. I always tried to get a photograph and not just a snap shot. Because I live in the heart of the Rocky Mountains it’s kinda easy to get a great back ground scene and wonderful water colours. I don’t think I could ever pick out a favorite photo. I do know that I have a few hundred that I enjoy looking at over and over again. Lots of great memories are attached to them. I have decided to post a few fly fishing photos in this blog because even for non-fishers I think we all can imagine being there at that moment. All the fish I ever photographed were released live shortly after the grip and grin.
