  1. Alan - lots of good reasons for sure! I was surprised that you didn't include a picture of the amazing colors on an eastern brook trout :)

  3. You will get no argument from me - I look forward to all your posts - I live vicariously through your blog when I am not on one of my Vermont brooks. Thanks for many wonderful experiences.

    Take care, Ed

  4. Told my neighbor I was going to Colorado again this year and would continue to stand in the rivers as long as I'm able. 76 yrs old and catching a fish is just a bonus. The being in the river is the blessing as your pictures reveal.

  5. I heard every word crystal clear! The only point I would add would be a picture of beautiful "wild jewel".

  12. Beautiful! That says it all right there. Do you ever make prints of your photos? Some of those would look good above your fly tying desk for example I think.

      Dave I do make prints of some of my favorites. While they are not framed I do keep them close. I have a book that I keep on my desk that has given me so much inspiration. In that book are the photos.

  17. Breathtaking pics! I've recently purchased ATN X-SIGHT II HD 5-20x from here: http://www.atncorp.com/smart-hd-weapon-sight. It's able to make Full HD videos and photos, so can't wait to go fishing for the next time and make great photos on my own)))
