Desert Vignettes…

I noticed in one shot that I took awhile ago, while visiting the Joshua Tree National Park in California, there were multiple ‘vignettes’ of micro beauty. I took the one shot and zoomed into those locations on the shot to point this out. Our eyes glance over/past color, contrasts, structure. But, I don’t stop in the moment to break it down. The first image is the overall and the next seven images are the smaller vignettes captured in the overall.

off to the side…

Rivers and streams sometimes, if flows allow, have little back channels of flowing water. Often these seem to be miniature variations of the main stem…little vignettes of currents, rocks & vegetation. We are often in a hurry to get to the bigger water to fish, swim, explore and step right on by these small worlds.

Macro Work: Tying & Fishing Small Flies: A Speck of Doubt

Tying and fishing with fly patterns smaller than size 18 have been, for me, a test in faith. As one explores fly fishing, you see the tendencies toward small offerings and the implied suggestion that it is a must to have such flies for gin clear waters and finicky fish.

Well, I have donned the goggles once again to tie up these miniatures of temptation. They are thankfully simple creations of a single strand flash or thread for the abdomen and a small dubbed thorax, finished with a minimal thread head. The faith comes from believing they will see the fly in anything but gin clear water and that the hook can be set into the jaw of a fish and remain there through the struggle against thin tippets and my exuberance.

Small Midge Collage

Three smallish Midge patterns, Size 18, 20 & 22. I usually fish these as droppers or as a straight offering on fine tippets and a supple rod tip. These smallish hooks get even much smaller, which seem more suitable for hooking fish in your home aquarium to me.

Midge Droppers Bottle Cap SwittersBHere, I combined my enjoyment of Macro Photography, artsy composition and an effort to show you the scale of the flies to a common object…a beer bottle cap, a spool of thread and scissors. Micro tying & Macro Photography & maybe hungry trout. Double click image.
