To Fish or Not to Fish

It was a beautiful day at a beautiful place. The bonefish were tailing, and I had left my fly rod on the shore while I waded around the crystal clear waters of Sandy Point in the Bahamas with my camera. I was desperately trying to get a good shot of a bonefish tail in the sunlight. It is a photo opportunity that dosen't come around often, especially when you live in Oregon, where I live.

This is what I do, and I love it!!!

Fly Fishing Stonefly Hatch Deschutes River, Oregon

The bugs were everywhere! Crawling all over me while I was trying to fish. I couldn't stand it any longer, so I decided to put down the fly rod and pick up my camera and shoot a few photos of these strange creatures.

Nehalem River Oregon Fishing Trip

I'll set the stage for ya:

There we were early Sunday morning on the beautiful Nehalem River, in Wheeler, Oregon. With the mist rises from the water, just trolling along when my beautiful yellow lab Sandy, standing on the front of the boat let out an enormous bark catching my attention. A flock of sea birds ahead of the boat were flying in formation such as fish swimming in a school, all turning and changing directions in perfect harmony with their wings in unisen as to make them all look larger, safety in numbers. Anyway, I was able to grab my camera, snap on the telephoto lens clicking a few frames as they passed in front of the boat. Then they where gone. The light wasn't so nice at the time, thank goodness for photoshop!
