  1. The blue, orange, and red of the reel/line looks great with the matching colors in the brookie, IMO. Good stuff.
  2. Great shots, Jay! That is a beautiful place and you did a great job capturing it.
  3. Love the second photo! That combination of reel, backing and line has to be one of coolest I've ever seen. What line comes in that blue color?
  4. Great photos and informative article! Although I wouldn't refer to the "grip and grin" shot as dreaded. It has its place and time. Maybe not from a photography stand point, but they make nice memories.
  5. Congrats Peter and very well done! The photos are very intriguing.
  6. Just returned from an annual steamer trip with my brothers. Here are a few of the shots from the trip. 7" olive/White Combo Killer just before catching the trout above. Poor man's dinner on the river. Scenic high bank. MI's rivers are not the best conditions for underwater photos. Especially when the water is stained and in low light conditions. Still, I thought this looked cool because the marabou is so soft in the water. Always a good time with my brothers.
  7. Great stuff, Jay! :thumbup:
  8. Great shots as always, John. I really like the yote shot and how it is standing on the high point in the field. Made for a great shot, IMO. I'll be chasing turkeys with a bow starting May 4th. I never make it out as much as I plan because I always find myself standing knee deep in water instead.
  9. Very nice as always, Jay. Looking forward to the trout pics.
  10. Congrats on your solo show! Very intriguing photos. Would love to see them on a larger scale in person.
  11. I haven't been posting much here lately, but I still lurk and admire all the fine photos. For those that don't remember, I'm a sucker for fish faces. Each one is unique to me. Here are a few recent shots.
  12. I'm not a big bird guy, but this is the best bird photo I have personally ever seen. Stunning shot, John!
  13. Cool shots! Seeing those parr reminds me that I have some tying to do. Rainbow and steelhead parr are the preferred meal of big browns in the spring around here.
  14. Like mentioned before, I think a lot of us come here to see nice photos. Some of us are far from professionals and probably can't recognize where/how a photo has been altered. I edit mine sometimes. A lot of my photos are of fish and I want to get them back on their way as quickly as possible. I don't always have time to play with the settings and I don't know enough to find the necessary settings quickly. Sure it might be considered cheating, but I'm not trying to impress anyone and no one is buying my photos (not saying you are trying to impress us John ). There are some photos that I see that I assume are "over cooked". But I like those too, I just like them for different reasons. For what it's worth John, I assume your photos have very little to no editing. That is why I am very impressed with your skills with a camera (even though aren't trying to impress us ).
  15. I don't know, I think you could tie some pretty nice nymphs out of those squirrels.
  16. Beautiful shots...especially the coastline.
  17. Great shots as always, John. Love the first shot as well as the owl and hen mallard.
  18. Thanks guys. The cold doesn't bother me if the steelhead are there. We are always safe and dress accordingly.
  19. Great shots! I love winter fishing in the snow.
  20. Icy river shortly after dawn. The ice on these trees show the high water level recently. And a small, frozen tributary. A recent steelhead trip when the temps warmed up into the mid 20s.
  21. Great shots! You always do such a great job "capturing winter" in your area.
