In the digital world more and more people are enjoying taking fantastic photos of their travels and their fishing. The equipment makes it almost stupid simple to get even mediocre photos but sometimes the challenge is getting the setting and composition correct. The best way to learn these techniques, at least for me, is to look at other peoples photos. I ran across this photographer/fly fisherman, T.C. Geist, on the web and thought it would be a great place to share with other. Take a look at some of these great shots and try to do the same with your camera. Who cares if it is only bluegill you are taking pictures of. Have fun!
Here in central Indiana we do a lot of warmwater fly fishing. I am always amazed at how many people come into the shop and asked "what do you fly fish for around here?" Fortunately, we have Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Muskie, Panfish, White Bass, Striped Bass, Hybrid Bass, Rock Bass, Catfish, Drum, Sauger, and Carp (to name a few) to fly fish for. But I am biased, I grew up in Indiana and learned to fly fish on the afore mentioned species and hold them in my memories with fond affection. To the point, William G. Tapply wrote a book a few years back called Trout Eyes. In this book he spoke of the history of bass fishing and the more modern "warmwater fishing". There is a wonderful excerpt from this book on MidCurrent. This is a great read if you are looking for a little background on the fishing you do around Indiana. Enjoy.
