A Perceptive Eye: Mike Kinney Photography

Painting by my niece, Lauren Lynn Haney, (19), Newberg, Oregon

For several years now, I have noticed the photographic work of Mike Kinney on Facebook. At first, he wrote about his apparent passion of steelhead fly fishing in Washington. But, I noticed him inserting early morning pictures on rivers and they were eye catching. A part time passion it seemed. Now, I notice Mike takes some very beautiful pictures and I found a compilation of them…..very nice work.

Spey Casting Basics….Sloooooow

Tim Johnson @ Steelhead Chaser provides a short reminder re spey casting: go slow and then even slower. As I read that, I envisioned my own casting strokes. I could see jerky lifts, fast sweeps, and rushed applications of power to the butt or less appropriately to the right hand at the top of the cork.

I was admonished with the same advice by Matt McCrary on prior outings: ‘Slow down’ ‘easy’…..

A refresher is always good. In my case, it is beginning basics and I am in the process of building the pathways, building solid basics. Watch Youtube spey casting vid’s by say Mike Kinney or Ed Ward and notice the easy, SLOW, movements. Even they watch-feel their casting stroke.
