For years I didn’t carry a camera while fishing and even when I did I rarely took it out to snap a shot. Too busy fishing I guess. Last year I received a lot of crap from the crew for not contributing to the overall photo community by snapping pictures of their fish.
Get over it guys…the fish wasn’t that big anyways.
I remember one such trip I received a constant barrage of BS the whole ride back home. Previewing the pictures taken throughout the day I kept hearing, “Ohhh look…another picture of D.”
Well guys the day has come. I was blessed this year and received for Christmas a Pentax Optio W30 from my brother and sister-in-law just for fishing purposes! So now I can take pictures of you guys for a change. No promises but at least I’ll have a camera on me [can’t use that excuse anymore I guess].
We may need to work on your fish pose. I ain’t wasting megapixels on that. | Photo by G. Kim.
In addition to the W30 I did receive a jumbo Morell fly box, a rainbow trout stapler, and some much needed financial help for a new two-hand fly rod.
March can’t get here quick enough.
