Tweaking the Tangles & Piles

I took two separate piles of stuff and tweaked their image to create something fanciful or tangled…at least to my eye. 

jumble-tangled-SwittersB-ArtEarlier this week, I shared the first tweaked image, a mysterious Cosmos exploration.

Art-Photogaphy-Cosmos-Creative-SwittersBThe ‘inspiration’  for the tweaked images came from my renovation site. One a pile of painter’s debris left behind and the other, the painter’s equipment seemingly forgotten on my kitchen floor. Tweaking the image until something resonated with me…my imagination.

Fly Fishing: Line Management Onto the Reel

Regardless of the type of reel (level wind, spinning or fly reel) it always important to watch how the line is going onto the reel whether fighting a fish or quickly reeling in to re-rig or cast. Reeling in a tangle onto the reel while playing a substantial fish is a possible disaster.

Here I was playing a substantial fish off the reel and I had reeled that mess down through the rod’s guides. When the fish ran, the tangle did come off the reel but failed to make it back up through all the guides. Fish gone. Fortunately no damage to the rod’s guide(s).

Normally, I would use my right hand fingers to tuck the fly line, above the tangle, behind my forefinger/middle finger and against the cork. From there I would attempt to use my off hand to untangle the mess by allowing some slack to the line around the tangle. If the fish is sizable, you may only get one shot at this. In the photo above, I never noticed the tangle as I fought the fish.
