Peter, very nice set from the local market! I like especially the last two shots ("Heaven in every Bite" is quite a promise...). Btw, there's nothing wrong with spending some time with a fishing rod instead of a camera.
I've fished 2011 like a maniac and only a very few times last year. Missed the quiet hours on the water 2012...
Hope I can mix photography and fishing this year in a better way.
I miss fishing a lot as well. I used to go Trout fishing all the time, but I haven't been in a VERY long while.
Leighton, I've never tried trout-fishing. The rivers and streams here are getting cleaner and clearer every year and demanding species like trouts come back. So - maybe there's some fly-fishing in my future ;-)
Here's a mediocre picture of my most loved rod and reel - both are from the 70's and I've tried to process the image accordingly:
vintage ABU Legerlite swing-tip-rod and Shakespeare-reel (with ball-bearing!!!) - D700, Ai'd Nikkor S-Auto 50/1.4
Very cool Georg, and the processing matches. I have a reel that's almost like that, a Garcia Mitchell 300 from the seventies. The trout streams around here are very nice and clean, and well stocked. Nothing like getting one of those things on your fly rod! What excitement.
