Too bad the photographer didn't wade out into the water to shoot that photo from the river toward the bank... would have had the sun shining the right direction to show the gleam off that big blushed buck... and some nice advertising for the riverside lodge as well.

Fish of a lifetime on a Spey rod!

A better solution for a good fish/fisherman photo, in fact for all outdoor photos, is to backlight [eliminates subject squinting] as was done in your photo plus always use the flash. The flash will light up the the fish, angler and especially the angler's face which is usually shaded by a hat.

Given that Georgie has been trying to tag a Kenai king on the two-hander for years, he was pretty estatic about that fish. Truely a fish of the lifetime... :)

fishNphysician's great fish

How long did it take you to land that fish? I was up about 10 years ago, and in a boat with heavy duty rods/reels it took up to an hour in a boat to land a fish that big.

Please post some specifics like:

What Rod?

What Line?

What Reel?

How big was the leader?

What fly, color and size of fly?


Thanks for posting this great picture.
