Through my adventures photos are taken that never seem to make it into specific fish posts. So much of my fishing goes unseen or heard. Even though these pictures may not be ready for prime time fishing posts, I have found a way to fit them in an excerpt called “Photos from the field.”
Isabell…the fickle mistress
(Above: High altitude fishing is often a gamble of timing and luck. This photo was taken on a trip that was heaping with visual splendor but the fishing was very tough. Sometimes the view is worth more than catching fish. All things considered a fish would have made this a prime time post as opposed to a mere photo splash. Next time.)
Taunted by fish
(Above: A shot of the 2-pound-ish looking rainbow trout that followed the lure but wouldn’t strike on the Platte. Most of the fish here come with a master’s degree and are highly educated. Usually they just laugh at me staying low in the current. This one literally taunted me by coming in and out of the trough once or twice shaking its head in disgust.)
Some fish are just a blur in the back of my mind
(Above: Brown trout slipping back to the water. The motion evidently was blurred in the shot resembling all of the fish my feeble mind can barely recall. Some fish barely stand for the photo op and one picture like this is all I get.)
(Above: White water rafting this year has seen some decent CFS action giving the seasonal industry a bit of a boost and a few extra smiles. Not too shabby.)
(Above: Not everyone made it through the set of rapids and the rafting guide had to be Johnny-on-the-spot in order to rescue one of the rafters in the smooth stretch. Good thing I had already covered that spot with a few casts.)
