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.
The photo above was also shot one spring morning after fishing the North Fork of the White River. It is of an outhouse near the Hodgson’s Mill property. This particular area offers a lot of scenery and history for the traveling fly-fisherman.
The photo above was shot on a spring day after fishing the North Fork of the White River in southern Missouri. It is of the spring which flows from Hodgsons Mill, and is currently privately owned. Although the spring isn’t currently home to any trout, it does offer a great place for a photographer to stop and get some interesting photos of the spring, its mill, and the surroundings.
Many of the OzarkChronicles.com faithful know that I am a bit of a shutterbug. More times then not, when on a stream, I will put down the fly rod and reach for the camera to snap some photos. As fly-fisherman, we are surrounded by some of the most spectacular scenery in the country on any given day, yet very few of us take time away from the next cast to appreciate all that is around us during those moments on the water. The Sepia Files will be my weekly attempt at showcasing some of those moments.
This will be a weekly addition to the blog and a new image will be posted every Wednesday in an effort to get us through the week and headed toward the weekend. I hope you all enjoy.
