Fly Fishing: Excitor Seduction………….


Fly Tying: Iantra’s Copper John Tutorial

The Copper John has surpassed, in some people’s assessments, the Gold Ribbed Hares Ear (GRHE) and the Pheasant Tail Nymph (PTN) as the most popular, worthy mayfly nymph imitation. The Bulgarian flyfishing site Iantra has a nice tutorial/SBS on tying the Copper John

SwittersB’s Super Bowl XLV Pick

Well, I have never been a Pro Football fanatic. My allegiance is to the old I guess. YA Tittle, Johnny Unitas, John Brodie,  The 60’s Green Bay Packers of Lombardi, Bad Boy Paul Hornung, Jim Taylor and Bart Starr or the late 70’s Steelers of Lil’ Abner Bradshaw, Franco and Swan. Nothing has quite grabbed me since. Not the Montana 49ers, not the Cowboys nor the Vikings. I tried during the Bronco’s debacles. I don’t own a single jersey with someone’s name on the back (a genuine pussified garment in my estimation). Ok, I do have a few college shirts and hoodies and some All Blacks rugby shirts. So, with that in mind, my Super Bowl pick is to go fishing and forsake the ads, half time garbage, excesses and pretending I give a rat’s ass. So while everyone else is burping and scratching I am going out to find some private space.

Fly Fishing & Digital Photography

Don't Be A Prisoner to Auto Mode!

For me, understanding camera basics has been akin to being back in high school algebra. Brain freeze. That side of my brain was probably damaged when I was dropped as an infant. It has never computed for me. So, when I read about shutter speed, aperture, ISO setting and depth of field and realize they are interconnected my mind, at first quakes, then sighs in relief that there is an auto setting for my cameras.

I’m spoiled by nice mid-level cameras. But, is that going to teach me how to maximize the capabilities of the cameras/lens? Of course not. If you are like me, every little bit helps in the take me by the Manual Mode hand and teach me. Here is a good Digital Camera Tutorial site for the beginner that wants the cues on how  to experiment with confidence in that manual mode. So, if that creative streak hits you out there on the water or at the bench take a chance. Of course you can search down the right side of my blogroll for the true experts in fly fishing photography. Inspiring and exceptional work; they obviously excelled in algebra or weren’t dropped on their heads.
