Brian Wise and his son Parker during a successful trip to Dry Run Creek. Parker is really coming into his own as a fly-fisherman and knows how and when to mend line when fishing now (at 6 years old).
Brian Greer is seen putting his ninja like skills to use while fishing a southern Missouri spring creek during the winter. The smaller Missouri streams often require a stealthy approach for success.
While we may have ended the 2009 Missouri Trout Odyssey at the end of November, that doesn’t mean the “work” with the trip was over then. Visiting 21 trout streams in 4.5 days is a daunting task, but so is wading through the countless hours of HD video and the hundreds of photos that we shot. Brian Wise has finally gotten through most of the video and put together a little trailer (I am still wading through the photos), if you will, that will hopefully tide you over until the full written reports, photos, and videos are posted to the blogs. For the Facebook friendly, Brian and I have been pushing out hints a little at a time over the past week or so. All in all, it was a hella good time.
I was playing around with my Olympus underwater point and shoot camera when I captured this image of Brent Hinds releasing a rainbow that caught at Montauk State Park. These underwater point and shoot cameras are now a fisherman’s best friend and have put an end to the old fisherman’s lie.
The above photo is Tim Biesendorfer on one of our November trips to Wisconsin to chase salmon. The weather was so unseasonably warm, that we opted wet wading the shores of Lake Michigan in search of fresh fish.
