finding self…

I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright. ~Henry David Thoreau

Hong Kong Piracy & Abuse? I think so…

Since 2008, I have posted about 7,000 times. I have presented many thousands of my photos for other’s enjoyment. I now see that many of my photos have been used by phishing/spam sites with catchy outdoor site names like Year of Clea Water and many more…all sites when clicked on take you into a rabbit hole of problems.

Others have remarked about noticing a sudden, inordinate amount of visits from Hong Kong. I have had almost 60,000 such visits. No doubt in my mind of the link to the Hong Kong visits and the abuse of my images. Of course, I don’t have any images copyrighted….so I understand the realities. Imitation is the best form of flattery…this is more nefarious that imitation. I have known of many of my photos ‘borrowed’ by businesses/sites with my ‘SwittersB’ lopped off. I let it go. I know of people selling my images. I see them on Alamy and other stock photo sites. Those are varying degrees of selfishness but the phishing/spam efforts are abusive to others an my photos attached to those sites if disheartening.

Along came a spider…

“It’s spider season. Every year, right about now, thousands of the godless eight-legged bastards emerge from the bowels of hell (or the garden, whichever’s nearest) with the sole intention of tormenting humankind.” Charlie Brooker

Summer Starts…

Stoneflies on the Deschutes R. (Oregon)…

My son, Tony Muncy of Muncy Designs and I ventured over for the day on the beautiful Deschutes R. in Central Oregon. Word ways the Stoneflies were ’emerging’ onto the shoreline vegetation. So we thought we would see if the Redside trout were at all connecting with the adult Stones or nymphs. We centered upon the river North of Maupin, Oregon and some 15 miles downriver we found plenty of Stonefly nymphs crawling out onto shoreline grasses. The adults were emerging from the nymph’s and fluttering into the trees. We fished nymphs hard with only a few bumps. As the shadows finally fell upon the river, the expectations were adult Stonefly patterns would yield splashy takes. Alas, the trout karma didn’t align with the bug karma. A few fish, tons of bugs, glorious scenery and weather. The hatch is evolving toward some amazing times for some fly fishers in the days ahead as the ‘hatch’ progresses up river and the trout and bug karmas align.
