The photography thread

This is a thread to post pictures you feel are fishy, beautiful, artistic, or interesting. It doesn't have to be fish related so long as some water is present although I'm betting on some of you taking liberties and I encourage that always

We clearly have some great photographers here, have at it! There are far worse ways to spend your time than perusing this thread

I think I fish, in part, because it’s an anti-social, bohemian business that, when gone about properly, puts you forever outside the mainstream culture without actually landing you in an institution. –John Gierach

Oops...

Here's one that qualifies. It was taken on a section of a river that contains mostly wild (mandatory release) steelhead. This shiny little guy just missed becoming dinner after wrongly assuming he was a wild fish.

22 foot Tenkara

This gentleman travelled from his homeland to the Kispiox to fulfill his dream of landing his first steelhead on a Tenkara rod, which he did a few minutes before this image was captured. There was much celebration in his camp that evening...

Cool photo with good lighting and equipment.

My buddy needed some footage for a commercial he produced. So he shared with me.

A friend of mine is waiting for a strike of an Atlantic salmon on the Teno river in Finland. The sun disappears temporarily behind a mountain on the Norwegian side in the land of the midnight sun.

Closing The Season

I'm no great photographer...that's for sure, but as the changing leaves will show it is later in the season on one of my favorite Pennsylvania spring creeks. The fish were only a little cooperative, but as I read somewhere -- All fishing is good fishing...when you catch fish it's great fishing.

Cheers,
George
