Kean O. with a great fall brown trout in epic colors. Great day on the river yesterday, seeing the old trout water one more time before old man winter locks her in. Streamer fishing was pretty consistent, while not too many would actually put the streamer in there mouth, plenty came out and played with it. Great job Kean getting the couple when you had the chance.
Have some exciting things in the works with Snap T Pictures again. As Erik Rambo and I contiunue to combine forces on projects. We have been bouncing around in the dark, and are excited about the latest project that should be done this fall after all the editing. Stay tuned to see what night vision camera’s saw in the dark.
Had fun creating a new video for Hawkins Outfitters. Had the chance to video a trout jumping straight out of the water for a damsel. While the footage is not perfect, I would highly recommend increasing the screen size for the first 10 seconds to see the flying damsel almost get eaten. Enjoy.
Why do they wiggle, why do the squirm, why can’t they just sit still for a quick pic. It happens more than I want to admit, the jumping out of the hands brown trout during the photo session. A way that I protect the trout, is to have the net underneath the trout during the photo session. As you can notice here the trout is flying and it was saved by the net waiting underneath. We all want photo’s of the nice ones we catch, now we need to protect them when we do bring out the camera. Use this little net trick if your stuck in the boat taking photo’s.
With the official start of lamprey season (chestnut lamprey), the biggest match the hatch we have here in Michigan for our streamer program. Not that there is really a season for lamprey, but I just happened to notice they the crawled out of the mud this week. Some people have told me trout don’t eat lamprey. Okay. If they don’t eat them, I’m fine with that, but they sure don’t like them. Pictured below is a trout we caught this weekend on an imitation lamprey streamer pattern. This trout had 11 different lamprey attached to him and out of anger destroyed my simple fur and feather pattern.
