Fishing and Photography

I have several mates that are regular fishing partners. We all enjoy fly fishing for trout. Whilst we all fish dams and the larger more popular designated trout rivers our preference is to fish the smaller Alpine streams of the Snowy Mountains region. On these smaller waters we practice “catch and release” and record our activities through stills and video. Yes, we have our fair share of “catch and grin” images were the happy smiling angler shows off his catch, but increasingly we are trying a more artistic approach through capturing images of the landscape in which we fish, abstracts of fish or gear, and more contemplative portraits.

Our approach to fishing is probably different to what most people would expect. We enjoy just being out in the environment  sharing each others company. If we do catch fish it is an added bonus. No matter what you do there is no guarantee of success. The water conditions,weather, the choice of flies and their presentation –  not to mention the “mood” of the trout all conspire against you. Sometimes the fish are just “on” and all you have to do is land a fly anywhere on the water. Other times fish will refuse the most beautifully delicate presentation, or ignore it completely.

I must admit this behaviour can be frustrating at times, but if you are stressed or anxious I believe your chances of success are less than when you are calm, controlled and focused.

It is interesting that I find myself applying this philosophy to my photography as well.  Just enjoy begin out shooting images, not being too worried about having “to catch” the perfect image. If you are relaxed the images will come far easier than if you are stressed.

I have recently been playing with Nik Color Efex primarily with “Bleach-Bypass” and “Detail Extractor” filters.

Roy is a fishing master – he spots (then often catches) fish we cannot see. He is a video editing genius and has recently purchased a Canon DSLR.

Callum is a master craftsman – he builds beautiful split cane rods.

Mark – thinking about the next fishing trip?

Mark has recently jumped into photography in a big way – but does not like having his photo taken!

Mark contemplates a “top five” fishing day – the kind of day in which everything was just perfect!
