Photo Essay: Dry Fly Steelhead

My friend Steve is a fine photographer and one good dude. I thought I would share a bit of his work on here.

This piece was a from a trip a few years ago. Some dude carrying a small tying kit on the river.

Anyway, I thought some of you might enjoy it.

Well that made my day
I often thought about bringing the tying kit to the river ...
Love the last photo in the first post - shows the intensity of executing a cast to get in that "perfect" zone to fish ... nice !!
Love the fin shots too
We definitely have some talented members !!
Thanks for posting this my brother


Mike

Great stuff, Adrian!

I love the simplicity of the Grease Liner and the buggy look, as well......yet I never get mine to skid the surface like that!

I need an in-camp primer next time; the wee drams will be on me. Buchananís 12 yr. old is my new Scottish lassie.

Letís fish.....

This is a perfect example of the difference between someone who can take a really good picture and someone who is truly a photographer. I love these.

Dan

Which way to the river?

I started by thinking what a waste of fishing time to be tying on the water but quickly realized there is an esthetic here that flows like the river this man fished. The photos capture a sequence any of us would like to live even for just one day.
