In a rare stroke of clearness, I accidentally got a decent face on picture of this fish. Usually everything I try to do while I’m wrestling with fly rod, net, current, fish and bloody camera looks like a fingerprint smudge —However, in a desperate attempt to figure out what I was doing wrong, I did something so out of character that I’m appalled I’m going to admit it. But here goes…I pulled out my camera instruction manual and read a few pages. GASP.
Say Hello to my newly discovered Macro feature.
Let us not forget. I Fly Fish. I write. I don’t claim anything beyond those two things, especially not photographer.
Upon macro observation, I’m surprised I even got this bruiser in. Clearly someone (me) is slow on the Camera know-how and apparently slow on the hook set.
