As I continue to learn how to be better at photography, videography, and editing. Best way to learn is practice, but second best way is to watch the pro’s. There are some shots in this video that I have not seen before, pretty cool stuff here. Thought I would share.
John Stefanciw (chewy) and I did a Grand Traverse Bay carp article for A Tight Loop, you can check it out on page 12 of the latest edition of this midwestern online magazine. Late May and early June are prime time for these brutes on a fly. 100% visual experience. More coming soon about carp on a fly, working on a fly tying video and soon will be posting an article on the Hawkins Fly Fishing site.
If you love taking your fly rod to different places and chasing anything that swims, this book is going to help you update your “to do” list. Jerry Darkes has just published a new book about all the great lakes and how to target anything that swims within these bodies of water. From Salmon to smallmouth to carp. So many ports, beaches, breakwaters, and river mouths to try, that an angler couldn’t do them all in a couple years. But this untapped frontier needed a book like this, pick it up from your local fly shop or follow the link to amazon here. The book will cover how to, when to, fly patterns, and so much more.
Also a bounce you might know the guy on the cover. Will also be an assortment of Mangled Fly Media images within the pages as well. Great job Jerry!
I have taken the first photograph of a golden eagle, while the photo itself is not that good. Based on the height of the bird in the sky, my 200 mm lens this is the best I can do. Time to save money for a 600mm. Going to take some time to save for that one. But to prove I have seen a Golden Eagle here is my proof of life photo.
One of my most favorite fishing blogs is Moldy Chum, and my favorite two-handed rod the Scott T3H (1288 to be exact) can now be found in one spot. Moldy Chum posted the video (thank you) that we worked long and hard on this fall/winter on there site today. Here is the link If you have not watched it yet, enjoy.
