Yesterday was really a fun day. The publisher for the magazine I work for took my self and one of the graphic designers fly fishing. I've done a tone of fishing but never fly fishing.

It has been something I've always wanted to do. We were on the water from about noon until 4:00 so it was not optimal shooting times.

I packed a very light camera bag just taking my 5D & my 17-40L, I even left my CPL in the car and was not going to hike back and get it.

I felt it was a great day as I caught my first trout and snapped a couple of images. Here is one of the publisher.

P.S. I think this could go under sports or nature so you guys let me know.

Nice shot..
Congrats on your first Trout..
My dad has all the gear but he lives on the other side of the country and ties his own flies..
Definatly belongs in sports...I have been to the national champs once ( dad took me ) when I was about 16 and watched these guys land flies into rings 3 inches in diameter from 30 or 40 feet away ..absolutely amazing
thanks for posting
cheers

"where is the fish"

...it is not always about the fish!

I use to hike a river every wednesday from about 7am to 7pm. Because it was middle of the week you would see maybe 3 other people all day. It was magical, like you were on a different planet. Whether you caught a fish or not didn't matter.

I'm hoping we can go at least once a month.

Oh come on Chris, Don't you have a Texas size "Fish Story" to go with the pic? Not even one about the big one that got away?

It's a very well presented image... I'm just getting started on panoramas myself...

Watch your footing on those "slippery rocks", they've occasionally been known to bring a big man down, from time to time...

Thanks John,

Actually it is not a panorama, I took it with the 5D and 17mm-40mm and that is the crop.

I only fell 3 times, LOL. I am watching new waders and boots on ebay as we speak. I'm wanting to get some felt bottom boots that allow you to walk on the rocks and moss and not slip.

Sounds like a work out just balancing and staying upright in the river...

I'd also recommend the felt bottom boots, and a well fitted wader... I have a heavy duty pair for wading in the thickets and marshes, with boots already attached... and another pair, made of neoprene, with boot's also attached...

I should have bought the boots and the wader tops seperate...

Got a pair of hip waders too... great for just launching the boat in cold water...

But mostly, they get little use and just hang around...

I still need to buy a wide angle lens... Only have the 24-70mm for now...The other night, the 70-200mm 2.8IS was magical ... I had keepers shooting at only 1/50th, at 200mm...
