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.”
Turtles are something that I see on almost every summer trip to the lake. To find them you want to go to lakes with log or rock structure where they can sun themselves with little intrusion. For this one I used a little zoom action to get the shot.
Here is a shot of a white-faced ibis. Not sure why they call it a white faced ibis and it took me a few minutes to dial this one in using my National Geographic field guide. I find bird and pant identification much easier using book references as opposed to the internet most of the time.
A little conservation goes a long ways
Here is an example of something that I have asked for quite a bit from various urban fishery managers. The message of proper fish handling, catch and release along with species identification can go a long ways in regards to helping the sport. A conservation mentality blossoms from this type of education. Many people that fish the urban scene often do not know the type of fish they are catching and why catch and release helps maintain the population of fish overall.
