    Very Cool Jon! Beautiful picture (and fish). I know it varies for each picture you take, but are you willing to share the settings (frequently used) you have dialed in when you take close up pictures like this?

    I am pretty sure you are a catch and release guide and want safe releases of the fish. Can you explain how you manage to hold and control the fish to get these cool photos? I am sure you make every attempt to not hurt the fish (please know I am not criticizing or giving you a hard time). But I am curious how you are able to control the fish, and get them in positions while being able to dial in the settings on your camera. The few times I actually land a fish, I really struggle taking a picture or two (and they are usually lying on stream bank or a floor of boat), and these photos rarely turn out nice.

    Just wondering how the pros do it!

    Keep up the beautiful photography.
