For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
Your wonderful cropping really creates stunning images. As a new FF, I admit that I'd buy that fly in the first image just to put on my hat. "Almost" too pretty to use. But......
Bill/TullyThanksBill several people would do the same..put it on a hat, or frame it and that's OK. Myself I would fish it once then do the hat thing.I hope your name is Bill and it's OK to call you that.
So much class/grace! Yup, it's Bill. Your photography is stunning as is the stories you weave. Thanks for sharing them as often as you do.
You make me proud of the small trout I catch on the weekends. When I start fishing with a net again, maybe I'll be able to manage some photos.
Fading AnglerThanksChris you should be proud of the small trout you catch. Just think of the little waters they inhabit.
very good pictures I like very much also take photos of animals, I always carry my little camera in my jacket pocket.
Armando MilosevicThanksArmand it's a good thing to carry the camera, you never know when a good subject may present itself.
Beautiful colors displayed in those close ups, Alan. Amazing what colors pop up when one zooms in. For example, a very silvery brook trout I caught recently had many red spots that were shown when I cropped the picture close.Regards, Sam
Parachute AdamsThanksSam some of the photos I take come out lousy, but parts of it are very good when I crop it and use what is best. Some very lovely features show up when you crop as you have found to be so with your own photos.
Alan, your images are wonderful, I never get tired of seeing them. My question is do you store your images so that you an access them later or do erase them after awhile. I know if I was taking those photos I would create a library for them. A whole book of photos like that would sorta be a autobiography of your fishing life. That would be a book worth seeing. Thanks for the photos.
Brad BasehoreThanksBrad I keep many of my photos, erasing only those that are not very good. The photo book-journal is a good idea. A project for a winter evening.
AlanFantastic photos, with some awesome color quality, thanks for sharing
Bill TrussellThanksBill thanks to the camera...thanks to the flies, and squeeze in one more to the angler.
As I mentioned on your Facebook post Alan, rarely have I seen such wonderful, vivid photographs. Well done again.
Howard LevettThanksHoward it's appreciated, and again it's the subject and the camera
Have to agree with, Howard and the other folks who commented on your photography. Just mesmerizing..............Whatever you have, I wish I had skill wise.
Grandpa MelThanksMel your very kind.
Nice pics Alan,especially like the properly finished head on the streamer,so many spend the time to tie the fly but cant be bothered to finish the head properly.
phlyThanksBelieve it or not but the head is always the toughest part. When you stop to think about it your tying in so many feathers, floss, tinsel and such and to get it to fit so compactly is an achievement.
Beautiful detail, Alan. I especially love close up shots of flies. I love seeing all of the different textures the materials have.
Justin CarfThanksJustin close ups on flies are one of the top photos I take. I really enjoy it.
Nothing like a couple "in your face" trout pictures. Good work with the camera.
Mark Kautz-ShoremanThanksMark I love the way you put that.
I just love that third one. So gorgeous!
RM LytleThanksRowan that one did come out well.
Jim Yaussy AlbrightThanksJim it's appreciated.
AlanYou are a constant reminder that I need a new camera.
thedeadfisherThanksJohn, sort of like a string around the finger.
Really beautiful pictures of trout and flies, great photography.
Ben MckinleyThanksBen I truly appreciate your comment.
