  1. I use a Barracuda Jr and have had no problems with the jaws. The steel on my jaws are not soft. FishHawk
  2. Sony makes the sensor for Nikon. Both Canon and Nikon are good cameras. I use Nikon because I can use the lenses that I have from my Nikon film cames on my Nikon 300s. FishHawk
  3. Clouser because it gets into the strike zone quickly. It's also like the famous Hare's Ear nymph in trout fishing, a classic that works most of the time. I should probably use more poppers , perhaps I'll try it this season. I think the reason we use a particular fly is because we have a lot of confidence in it and it works most of the time. FishHawk
  4. It's your computer screen. I used to work in pre-press and digitail photography before I retired and we had computer screens that could be calibrated. They're very expensive. FishHawk.
  5. I used to be a Sage guy until I got my T&T Horizion II 9wt. A cannon . Give them a test cast you might like them. They are fast rods and if your into a slower rod try the Helix by T&T. FishHawk
  6. I print my photos on a Canon 6700D printer and have found that the Canon glossy paper works better than Kodak paper with this printer. It's a very good printer for the money. FishHawk
  7. Nice use of the colors. Almost too good to fish with. FishHawk

    some shrimp

    Nice work . I like the eyes , I'm sure the fish will key in on the eyes. FishHawk
  9. Went with the Hoya close up macro set as suggested by B&H photo. Works great and you can stack up the lens . I have a Panny FZ7 . Solved my close-up macro lens problem. FishHawk
  10. Anyone use the Raynor 150 macro lens on their camera? I'm thinking of getting one but don't like the plastic lens mount. I was thinking of using a step up filter ring instead. Don't know if this is possible. The Macro lens is 43mm and the camera is 55mm. FishHawk

    Make sure Commander Frank gets his copy. He like to read fly fishing books when he's not on a mission. FishHawk

    The Tub

    Fished the Tub on Friday, 5/6/05 and had a great day. Got 25 fish on a Tuttie Fruitie fly. Got two large fish one was a keeper. My fishing companion,Paxton did well and got two keepers. Lots of little guys in the mix. All the fish had lice on them. So they are here!!! FishHawk
  15. Great looking cover. Nice job. FishHawk
  16. I will be at the Sudbury meeting along with Ron(Paxton). Will report on the meeting . FishHawk
  17. There are writers and there are self promoters. Probably on of the best outdoor writer was Ernest Hemmingway. The Old Man and the Sea is a classic. Then you have the fishing personalities who constantly are promoting themselves. Look around you'll see guides posting photos of people catching gaint fish. It's part of the business. The best guide I ever had was a low key guy from Montana who let us do our thing and only offered advice when we needed it. Some of the best newspaper writers in my opinion are sports writers. None of them are baseball or football players but they capture the action wonderfully. Just my .02 FishHawk
  18. Somewhere I read it all had to do with water temperture . The smaller fish arrive earlier because they can handle the lower water tempertures. Also, if the big fish arrived when the smaller ones did there would be fewer smaller fish. Mother Nature has it all figured out. FishHawk
  19. Have a Regal and just got a DK Trekker from H&H for $175 on sale in Feb. It takes a little getting use to the DK jaws but I like the vise very much. DK Trekker will be my primary vise. FishHawk
  20. I will hit the Salt on May 1 . This year things could be a little late. It's all about water temp. When the temp is close to 50 the stripers are in. Mid to high forties the scouts start arriving. FishHawk
  21. Great shots Jason. As a retired Digital photographer you nailed it. Keep up the good work. FishHawk
  22. Thanks for the update. Will make a scouting trip soon. FishHawk

    Nauset Inlet

    Looks like I'll take a recon trip myself soon. Thanks for the report. FishHawk
  24. Should make things interesting. We'll see how it turns out. Bluefish this time of year , water temps too low for Bluefish. FishHawk
